Machine moves closer, execs move d out

Martin Fink, the chief techie straddling Hewlett Packard Enterprise s global Labs is quitting just as the prototype of his most ambitions project to date, The Machine, edges closer.

Martin has had a remarkable career, driving some of our most important initiatives, including our cloud, open source and Linux strategies and leading the Business Critical Systems division and The Machine, she said.

Whitman said today the prototype will bring The Machine to life , but provided little detail.

To further accelerate the time it takes to drive technology from research and development to commercialisation, we will move Hewlett Packard Labs into the Enterprise Group , said Meg.

This, she said, will help align R legwork on The Machine with the business - particularly how we integrate key components like photonics and memristor into existing product lines - by bringing together our innovation roadmap with our business roadmap .

All these changes also coincide with the end of COO John Hinshaw's career at HPE - he was previously in charge of customer advocacy, IT and operations and oversaw the split of HP into two companies, and did a good job, channel partners told us at the time.
