HPE's Services Business to Merge with CSC for Global IT Services

Hewlett Packard Enterprise will spin-off its Enterprise Services business and merge the unit with CSC, creating a pure-play, global IT services company with annual revenues of approximately $26 billion, more than 5,000 customers in 70 countries and employees in every major global region.

The companies said the combination will give them greater scale to service global clients migrating to the cloud. The deal is expected to produce first-year cost synergies of approximately $1 billion post-close, with run rate of $1.5 billion by end of year one.

Mike Lawrie, the current head of CSC, will become chairman, president and CEO of the new company, and Meg Whitman will join the Board of Directors. The new company's board will be split 50/50 between directors nominated by HPE and CSC.

After the spin-off, the remaining HPE will still have $33 billion in expected annual revenue. The company says the plan enables it to sharpen its focus on secure, next-generation, software-defined infrastructure built on its portfolio of servers, storage, networking, converged infrastructure, as well as its Helion Cloud platform and software assets.

"The 'spin-merger' of HPE's Enterprise Services unit with CSC is the right next step for HPE and our customers," said Meg Whitman, president and chief executive officer of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "Enterprise Services' customers will benefit from a stronger, more versatile services business, better able to innovate and adapt to an ever-changing technology landscape."

"As a more powerful, versatile and independent global technology services business, this new company will be well positioned to help clients succeed on their digital transformation journeys," said Mike Lawrie, CSC chairman, president and chief executive officer. "Together, CSC and HPE's Enterprise Services will have the scale, foundation and next-generation technologies to innovate, compete and grow in a rapidly changing marketplace. We are excited by the great potential this merger brings to our people, clients, partners and investors, and by the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with Hewlett Packard Enterprise."

AT&T NetBond Connects with CSC Agility Platform for Cloud Services

CSC and AT&T are teaming up to offer an easier way for enterprises to manage workloads across hybrid cloud networks.

The joint solution integrates the CSC Agility Platform with the AT&T NetBond services, enabling developers to rapidly and consistently provision apps onto cloud and network services using automation. Users can access multiple cloud providers from a CSC Agility Platform single control plane over AT&T’s virtual private network. The CSC Agility Platform quickly applies policies to multiple clouds.

“We’re combining our strengths to provide a complete hybrid cloud management solution,” said Jon Summers, senior vice president, AT&T Mobile & Business Solutions. “The CSC Agility Platform can manage multiple clouds from one dashboard and AT&T NetBond provides on-demand, dynamic network management.”

“We’re creating a more consistent blueprint for hybrid cloud apps. This makes the user experience easier and more complete, while improving conformance with enterprise guidelines. The joint solution does just that,” said Dan Hushon, CSC chief technology officer. “This is a step forward for enterprise cloud service -- end-to-end control helps the most complex environments work better.”
