Bye Bye EDS

A little follow up to Peiper’s post the other week about Dell Computer buying up Perot Systems.



EDS, an HP Company, Becoming HP Enterprise Services

HP today announced that EDS, an HP company, will become HP Enterprise Services.

The name change marks the next major step in a year-long integration of EDS into HP and emphasizes the growing global role of enterprise technology services in HP’s portfolio.

“Our clients expect us to harness the full power of HP’s portfolio to solve their business challenges,” said Joe Eazor, senior vice president and general manager, HP Enterprise Services. “Today we are combining the strong services brand equity that EDS has built over the last 47 years with HP’s technology leadership to become the leading IT services provider. We will continue to deliver the same service excellence that our clients have come to expect.”

To reflect the positive impact the EDS acquisition has made in expanding the breadth and depth of HP capabilities, the Technology Solutions Group will be renamed the HP Enterprise Business. This group is focused on business and government organizations of all sizes. In addition to enterprise services, its portfolio includes servers, storage, software, networking and technology services.

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2009, the HP Enterprise Business accounted for 47 percent of the company’s revenue and 60 percent of its non-GAAP operating profit.(1) All HP Enterprise Business units will continue to report to Ann Livermore, executive vice president of HP.

“Customers are facing tough challenges in their technology environments,” said Livermore. “Challenges such as a rigid infrastructure, increasing applications and information complexity are restricting the speed in which IT can add value to the business. HP is the best at helping customers manage and transform their technology environments to deliver better business outcomes.”



former EDS employees will appreciate my little graphical pun. For a long time EDS used “EDSolved” as an ad logo; see, we can solve all your problems! We (EDS employees at the time) always used to pronounce it as “ ‘e dissolved”. And now ... they have.

The rest of you can link to this YouTube video of one of their indecipherable commercials, either Running With The Squirrels or Herding Cats. We never understood them either, and we worked there at the time.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
