    Pros

    Showing definite signs and intents to change company strategy
    Interesting acquisitions to augment its overall value to the customer base

    Cons

    Translation of strategy to execution is marred by years of bureaucracy and a management structure that is not empowered to make local decisions at any level/geo until you climb several layers up!
    Value proposition is still strongly tied to CIO and below - how then can HP think it's competing with IBM? lack of vertical solutions, expertise and investments really limits the potential of growing HP footprint

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten the management structure and empower not only middle-management but all employees
    Take a global view not just a US-centric view as business now operates in a highly globalized context so why not reflected investments and actions in lesser mature Asia markets accordingly if the rest of the business world is targeting this region?
