Why Hewlett-Packard Must Articulate Its Enterprise Strategy
The challenge right now for HP is that the whole is not yet greater than the sum of its parts. For all of the operational-excellence strides Mark Hurd and his team have made, HP has yet to reveal an equally compelling externally facing strategy to the world: what is HP’s core strength? What does HP do best?
HP transforms from printers to diverse tech business
The Palo Alto company, which had $118 billion in sales last year, now draws its biggest profit from a unit that provides tech services to other companies and public agencies. But in the PC segment, Bradley “has been able to do some incredible things with a division that most people thought, before he came on board, couldn’t be fixed,” said veteran tech analyst Rob Enderle. “He appears to be on a fast track” among company executives, Enderle added. Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Hurd is considering a plan to fold the printing business into Bradley’s division.
Christo-Fascist Zionist Idiocy–Nice Man with No Grasp of Reality
June 27, 2007
The author’s use of “the final solution” in the title tells us a great deal. First, it tells us he is unwitting of the sad irony of using Hitler’s term justifying the genocide against the Jews. Second, it tells us he is naive and not very well read (as Hilter was not well-read on the Russian winter). Finally, it tells us he has zero grasp of global reality.
I have heard from commentators on my reviews that my listing of alternative books is as valuable or more valuable than detailed criticism of those books I consider to be intellectually decrepit, so below I respectfully offer the one book from the retired US military neo-cons that set the stage for this book, and then a series of books–just a few of hundreds (see my lists for more) that this author clearly has not read and consequently has no clue.
The outline of biblical propphesies is classic Bible-thumping stupid–these are the people that do not read ANYTHING other than the Bible or the Left Behind Series, and get their foreign affairs “wisdom of the ages” from the Pat Robertson 700 Club.
Israel and the US appear to be the last two nations on the planet that still think they can force their way on 6 billion people. The Iranians are actually a major bulwalk against the idiot Arabs who are now infecting Africa (as is China), and the Iranians understand two things really well:
1) Nuking them (70 million) will arouse 2 billion Muslims around the world
2) They can cut the supply line from Kuwait to Baghdad anytime, they can use Stingers to bring down any “Baghdad Airlift,” and they can take out one of the carriers in confined Gulf waters with a Russian Sunburn missile (zig-zaps at 2.2 mach) and a Pakistani nuclear warhead. Israel will be hit with 20,000 missiles from Lebanon, and several pre-placed bombs, including at least one dirty bomb and maybe even one nuclear suitcase bomb, will go off in Tel Aviv.
Navigation, not content, will rule. Navigators will compete based on reach, affiliation, and richness. Privacy will be a mandated aspect of every offering. Traditional organizations and bureaucracies are unlikely to survive because there is no one there willing and able to “deconstruct” them down to core functionalities and then rebuild them back up with a focus on customer service as the driving force rather than assembly of whatever it was they used to understand as the primary organizing principle.
