Hewlett-Packard is readjusting itself once again, now splitting into two companies. Its PC and printer business will separate from its enterprise and services business. Meaning, that current CEO Meg Whitman will become the chairman of the PC and printer operation, on split-off enterprise business side. Dion Weisler, an executive at HP’s PC business, will take over as CEO of the company’s PC and printer operation — in other words, they will in effect, switch places.
HP Enterprise, the split-off section of the company, will continue to focus on business and enterprise implementations. Meanwhile, HP Inc. will continue to live off of PCs and printers, as well as experiment with new technology, such as 3D printing. The split will be complete by fiscal 2015.
