HPQ Former Partners, Microsoft And Intel Corporation: Now Involved In Tech Race

Written by on October 14, 2013

On Wednesday, Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) CEO Meg Whitman talked to  Wall Street investors and analysts and said that the company’s growth is hindered by Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). She said that HP has long-time partnership with both companies and now both are becoming direct strong competitors. And our traditional highly profitable markets are at the verge of destruction. The competitive forces are very rough and very actual and they are increasing with passage of time. The opponents are ruling over the IT stack. Intel and Microsoft are turning from partners into opponents.

Microsoft is turning from a software supplier into hardware developer with the release of the first Surface tablets. The Redmond Company is following the footsteps of Apple, Samsung, Dell and HP. Now by acquiring of Nokia’s devices and services division, Microsoft is hitting the smart-phone market at a bigger level.

Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) distant itself from Microsoft in May when the PC business of the company faced revenue decline of about 20%. So the company can’t depend only on Microsoft, and instead turning its business towards  Android, Chrome OS and Ubuntu for substitute, cheaper operating system solutions.

The company faced another decline in the PC department with a loss of 11 percent in August. However, HP has revealed its substitute OS plan, and just recently launched the Chromebook 11 with price tag of $279. Currently, it is on sale on Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Play but company can’t generate promising revenue in 2014.

She said that the company has missed too many golden chances. But now the company is focusing on strengthening its connection to customers and launch those devices that they want and to have sustained company’s position on long term bases.

HP is competing with Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) in enterprise-based businesses including cloud computing and computer security. The company is also competing with Microsoft in the Enterprise systems and services kingdom as well. Now Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s upcoming release this month will pose even a bigger danger to the company.
