HP Preys On IBM Partners
In May Hewlett-Packard set out to capitalize on uncertainty within the IBM Business Partner community and launched a "Project Smart Choice" campaign aimed at "rescuing" IBM partners. The program offered IBM partners information and resources to transfer their business before being forced to move to Lenovo.
On the front page of the Project Smart Choice website HP asks: "Unsure about your future with IBM x86 servers and Lenovo? Let us help you make a smarter choice."
