Hewlett-Packard intend to split into two individual companies to help better combat its competitors. This allows the allocation of resources to be more fine-tuned and focused within the aspects of the business which has grown large to incorporate a wide range of IT related services and equipment.
The separation will break up the business into one that will concentrate on its better-performing computer and printer business. The other part of the business will concentrate on the production and support of its hardware and services
This separation of the business is intended to be completed by the end of the financial year in 2015.
