HP and Microsoft have partnered in a $250 million initiative aimed to simplify technology environments for businesses.

The pair plan to collaborate on an engineering roadmap for data management appliances, converged, prepackaged applications, virtualisation and integrated management tools.

Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer, Microsoft, said, "Our extended partnership will transform the way large enterprises deliver services to their customers, and help smaller organisations adopt IT to grow their businesses."

Mark Hurd, HP chairman and chief executive officer, said, "This collaboration will allow HP and Microsoft to offer our customers transformative technology that will reduce costs, generate business growth and accelerate innovation."

The initiative is being backed by HP Services, in partnership with Microsoft Services to provide enterprise infrastructure services. Microsoft and HP said the services covered by the partnership include strategy workshops, to help businesses derive value from their IT investment, application modernisation services, business Intelligence and assistance for IT directors who plan to run their technology on-premises, outsourced or via the cloud.
