In November 2015, a new industry leading Fortune 500 company was launched: Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

HP split itself into two companies, HP Inc. and HPE. HP Inc. is made up of its PC and printing businesses. And HPE is comprising HP's enterprise hardware, software and services businesses. With the name Hewlett Packard Enterprise the company carries a rich legacy, where it builds on the past and creates a brand that supports the business it’s today and projects what it will be in the future.

On the 1st of April 2017 HPE completed the spin-merge of their Enterprise services part together with CSC to the new company DXC technology. And in September 2017 also the Software part will spin-merge with Micro Focus into the world’s largest pure-play enterprise infrastructure software company. The spin-merges unlock a stronger, more focused HPE, well positioned to compete and win in today’s rapidly changing market.
