Menu: About HP and Related Companies

On Nov 1, 2015, the Hewlett-Packard Company was renamed HP Inc. and a new, independent company -- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (no hyphen; singular; green rectangle logo) -- was spun out. Portions of HPE were later spun out into DXC and Micro Focus. Portions of DXC and Micro Focus have since been spun out. Details: HP Breakup
