HP ex­tends red car­pet to IBM part­ners

CRN - - SHADOW RAM -

Fol­low­ing the sell-off of IBM’s x86 server busi­ness to Len­ovo, true-blue IBM part­ners are be­ing wooed by HP.

Last month at the HP In­dia’s an­nual sum­mit for en­ter­prise part­ners in Dubai, 10 large true-blue part­ners were in­vited per­son­ally by Nee­lam Dhawan.

It is be­lieved that Dhawan and the en­ter­prise busi­ness team of HP had elab­o­rate closed-door meet­ings with each IBM part­ner and in­vited them to come on­board HP.

“These part­ners were lit­er­ally given a red car­pet hos­pi­tal­ity at the HP event. They in fact got more im­por­tance than the HP part­ners present at the event. It seems the ven­dor is very se­ri­ous about get­ting these part­ners on­board and mi­grat­ing large IBM cus­tomers to HP,” said a part­ner who at­tended the event.
