HP likely to buy Autonomy

Just saw the news. Here’s the link –http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/business/article/hp-may-drop-pcs-to-buy-autonomy-for-us11.7b/

HP could buy British software maker Autonomy. Just months ago, Autonomy just acquired Iron Mountain Digital’s asset with solutions such as Connected Backup, and the previous Mimosa Nearpoint.

Again, there is no value in the PC business anymore and it is only logical that HP is focusing on high value and high margin IT solutions. More news could follow.

About cfheoh

I am a technology blogger with 20+ years of IT experience. I write heavily on technologies related to storage networking and data management because that is my area of interest and expertise. I introduce technologies with the objectives to get readers to *know the facts*, and use that knowledge to cut through the marketing hypes, FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) and other fancy stuff. Only then, there will be progress. I am involved in SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) and as of October 2013, I have been appointed as SNIA South Asia & SNIA Malaysia non-voting representation to SNIA Technical Council. I was previously the Chairman of SNIA Malaysia until Dec 2012. I have recently joined Hitachi Data Systems as an Industry Manager for Oil & Gas in Asia Pacific. The position does not require me to be super-technical (which is what I love) but it helps develop another facet of my career, which is building communities and partnership. I think this is crucial and more wholesome than just being technical alone. Given my present position, I am not obligated to write about HDS and its technology, but I am indeed subjected to Social Media Guidelines of the company. Therefore, I would like to make a disclaimer that what I write is my personal opinion, and mine alone. Therefore, I am responsible for what I say and write and this statement indemnify my employer from any damages.
