Big data and data analytics will be big for HP as it prepares for its split into two separate companies. In just a little under three months, Hewlett Packard will officially split into two separate companies, with one (Hewlett-Packard Enterprise) focusing on enterprise technology, including data center hardware, and the other (HP Inc.) selling personal computers and printers.
At a recent HP conference in June, CEO Meg Whitman detailed the way she envisions Hewlett Packard Enterprise to serve potential customers in a service-oriented line of business. Whitman emphasized the idea that HP could help companies build out hybrid cloud infrastructure, in which companies can access both data centers hosted by public cloud providers like Amazon as well their own internal cloud data centers.
