On Nov 1, 2015, the legal name of the Hewlett-Packard Company was changed to HP Inc. and a new, completely separate 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, which have spun out other separate companies.
Our HP Breakup Timeline shows each event as HP spawned Agilent, Keysight, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HPInc, DXC Technology, Micro Focus, Perspecta... Each is a completely separate company. hpalumni.org/hptimeline
HP Inc. (HP):

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE):
- HPE corporate headquarters was moved from Palo Alto to the Alviso district of San Jose -- and then moved to a new campus on a former Compaq site in Houston, TX. HPE subsidiary Aruba headquarters moved from Santa Clara, CA to San Jose, CA. "In addition, our storage business, West Coast territory sales team, GreenLake, software, and other technical talent -- along with non-technical talent that chooses not to relocate -- will be based in San Jose."

Stock Time to untangle your stock! Depending on when and how you acquired stock, you may now have stock in up to six HP-related companies in various accounts -- or have missed cash payouts. An HP Alumni team has developed a step-by-step process.
Contacts for former employees and retirees of HP and related companies.
HP Inc. is the legal successor to the companies acquired by Hewlett-Packard before the company was split into HP Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Responsibility for commitments to former employees of Compaq, EDS, etc. remain with HP Inc. -- regardless of whether the employee's last business unit ended up in HP or HPE. Includes employment verification and any retiree health, pension, etc. plans.
