Apotheker kicked veteran Enterprise group head Ann Livermore upstairs to a board position and removed her from day-to-day responsibilities, indicating he was no longer willing to wait for Livermore to move the needle on services. In one fell swoop he broke apart the Enterprise group, making server chief Dave Donatelli, software head Bill Veghte, and global sales leader Jan Zadak, all of whom reported to Livermore, direct reports to the CEO.
Donatelli is effectively the new head of the enterprise business, succeeding the legendary Livermore who had more than once been considered a serious contender for the CEO job. He says that given HP's renewed emphasis on software Veghte will play a key role as well. "While we believe it is too early to judge whether these changes are for the better or not, we do believe they make sense in streamlining operations and increasing accountability," Wu writes.
