A New Era

With Hewlett Packard Enterprise officially launching on the NYSE Monday as HPE and HP Inc. now independent as a separate publicly traded stock under the symbol HPQ, Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO and HP Inc. Chairman Meg Whitman spoke with CRN about the launch of the two new independent Fortune 50 companies, the possibility of an EMC Pivotal IPO, challenges facing Dell's planned $67 billion acquisition of EMC, and untapped HPE partner opportunities.

Whitman's conversation with CRN came after the HPE CEO rang the opening bell at the NYSE alongside the top executives from two of its biggest partners: $46.5 billion Ingram Micro, the largest global distributor of HPE and HP Inc.'s products, and $12 billion CDW, one of the largest HPE and HP Inc. solution providers. "It feels great," said Whitman, who took over as CEO of HP four years ago with the company facing severe financial pressures and intense criticism from partners and customers. "It has been a long journey," she said.

"We have strengthened ourselves to where this separation is possible," said Whitman. "The objective is to have these two companies go faster and further as two independent companies."
