As already announced in February 2017, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and CSC completed their merger on 3 April 2017. The two companies complement each other synergistically, thus becoming the world’s largest provider of end-to-end IT services. The name of the newly formed organization, DXC.technology, was already announced in advance as well. This name and, in particular, the new logo now adorn the company’s new website (www.dxc.com). Strictly speaking, this is now the third restructuring process in which at least a number of HPE staff have been involved in recent years. Hewlett Packard Enterprise came into being as a new company following the spin-off of the printer operations in 2015. Having been merged with CSC within the framework of this process, the software operations were separated from the hardware side of the business and given the name Enterprise Services GmbH in early 2017.
According to Mike Lawrie, Chairman, President and CEO at CSC, “the DXC Technology brand will be based on trust and change, supported by our untiring commitment to enabling our customers to evolve through processes of change. The focus in this context is on generating added value for customers, partners and investors, as well as on creating development opportunities for our employees.” This statement provides indication of where the journey is intended to lead, so to speak. Both CSC and HPE have repeatedly demonstrated in the past that they are ready and willing to face the challenges and changes that lie ahead of them. This is not least why DXC.technology promises to establish itself as a competent provider in the market with the potential to sustainably accompany and assist even the largest and most complex corporations with an optimum mix of technology independence, outstanding competence and convincing visions.
