Coming off its creation last year through the split of the old Hewlett-Packard into two companies, this was a big win for Hewlett Packard Enterprise. HPE took first place in the server product category with an overall score of 76.1, beating runner-up IBM and its overall score of 71.9. Dell was third with an overall score of 67.9, followed by Lenovo's 59.0
HPE had the highest average product innovation score (83.4), thanks, in part, to top grades in product compatibility and ease of integration (84.4) and marketability (78.8). But IBM edged out HPE in product quality and reliability, 96.0 to 95.9.
HPE also recorded top average scores for support (69.6) and partnership (74.2).
