A Conversation With HP's Leo Apotheker


You've been meeting with HP partners. What opinion have you formed of the HP channel?

It is no secret to you that our channel partners are a huge asset to HP, and I had the opportunity to reconfirm at every meeting how important the channel business is and how important the channel business will remain for HP.

I heard good feedback from our channel partners. They actually really enjoy working with HP, which is good. Like in any relationship there is always something you can improve, and that came out as well. The first message I wanted to convey to them is that, for HP, the channel partners are a strategic asset and we will do whatever we need to do to make sure that they have a great future with HP.
