HP is cutting 9000 more services jobs

HP is investing $1bn in its services business to “enhance the client experience and better position Enterprise Services for growth.” But 9000 workers will lose their jobs.

HP says it is consolidating commercial data centers, management platforms, networks, tools and applications to “create a more scalable, modernized and automated IT infrastructure that will better serve its clients’ needs.”

HP bought EDS in 2008 and has room to consolidate.

“Over the past 20 months, we focused on integrating EDS and improving profitability,” said Tom Iannotti, senior vice president and general manager, HP Enterprise Services. “Now that the integration is largely complete, we have identified significant opportunities to grow and scale the business. These next-generation services will enable our clients to benefit from the combined technology and services leadership that only HP offers.”
