HP puts own man in charge of ex-EDS

Keeping it simple

HP today stamped its authority on day-to-day operations at the former EDS by replacing the services unit's boss Joe Eazor with its own man, Tom Iannotti.

Iannotti, previously managing director of HP Americas and Technology Solutions Group, will now run the group's global outsourcing operation, HP Enterprise Services.

The unit was formed when HP bought EDS for $13.9bn in 2008. Deep cuts to staff and benefits have followed.

Iannotti will report to Ann Livermore, executive vice president of Enterprise Business, one of HP's three massive divisions. Enterprise Business also incorporates software, servers and storage.

Eazor, who joined HP through its acquisition of EDS, will meanwhile become "senior vice president of corporate growth initiatives", a strategy role with a focus on China and India.

The changes are effective immediately. ®
