Unisys CEO Peter Altabef On Security, Cloud, IoT
Joseph F. Kovar
We recently saw HCL acquire a large part of IBM's software portfolio. How does that impact the IT services industry in which Unisys plays a part?
HCL's an interesting company. I have decades of familiarity with them. It's an intelligent company. And I think that what they're doing with that acquisition is emblematic of what I [have referred to as] a software-led services organization. When I use that term, that's really what I think HCL is trying to do. And it's exactly what we have been doing for the last several years. In a large, consolidating market, one of the ways you distinguish yourself is not just doing your best for less, but really bringing solutions that have a fundamental architecture to them that can be leveraged, because you've invested in the solution, and then you can roll it out with modifications to multiple companies. I think that's behind what HCL is doing, and that's behind what we've been doing for several years.
