Micro Focus belches as it struggles to digest HPE Software
"Operational difficulties fed into the financial results for Micro Focus's half-year ended 30 April 2018 with sales down 8 per cent year-on-year to $1.974bn. Nearly all of the revenue lines were down with the exception of subscription and SaaS.

Licence sales dropped 18.4 per cent to $396.4m, maintenance was down 3.5 per cent to $1.109bn, and consulting dropped 27.5 per cent $149.9m."

Also, SUSE revenue: "The top line number included an $182.9m contribution in sales from SUSE, which Micro Focus is offloading to a private equity biz for $2.53bn, and was 17.2 per cent higher than a year earlier."

Uber Spent $10.7 Billion in Nine Years. Does It Have Enough to Show for It?
“ Inc. is famous for its losses over the years. But even in the heyday of the dot-com bubble, the e-commerce giant never came close. Amazon’s biggest loss was in 2000—a $1.4 billion embarrassment, or about $2 billion adjusted for inflation. Most years, Amazon turns a profit, albeit a small one. What Uber backers can point to, though, is a nearly unmatched pace of sales growth. Even as Uber’s revenue reached $2.3 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017, its annual growth rate remained strong, at about 90 percent compared with 2016. That’s faster than most tech companies with a similar valuation. Only one U.S. tech company of Uber’s size, Micron, grew at anything close to that last year.”

The New HPE Sheriff Lays Down The Hybrid IT Law
“The larger problem, as we have pointed out before, is that it is very difficult to make a buck in the server, storage, and networking business with so many big buyers pushing down prices, enterprises shifting some compute from their own datacenters to public clouds (and therefore some of their budgets from capex to opex), and so many companies competing to sell wares to datacenters.”

Hewlett Packard Enterprise to cut 30,000 jobs
"cut another 30,000 jobs" - shedding droves of people happens at big tech companies a lot. I always wonder how their system got so inefficient that they hired this many extra people. It's a strange problem once you start thinking through it: each of those hires was thought to be needed to be profitable, and now all the sudden they're not needed...?

The hidden value of automation
"They started with 95 percent resource utilization in maintaining legacy processes, and a mere five percent of resources free to invest in new innovation. By the end of their transformation, just three years later, the percentage of resources available for new innovation was up eight times to 40 percent. In addition, with the introduction of automation, low-value and frustrating efforts such as manual testing, porting code, etc. were reduced to a bare minimum."

Reg man grills HP Software big cheese • The Channel
A summary of revenue: [HP’s] software division - IT Management, Application Development, Vertica, security and Autonomy - turned over $3.91bn in fiscal 2013 ended last November, down from $4.06bn in the previous year. With software, it’s good to focus on profits as well, as the margins are much higher. A common problem with large companies is getting cross-selling, inside and out of the company: “The biggest challenge for HP Software,” Youngjohns says, “is to get access to that broad range of HP partners and resellers, people selling systems and device solutions, to convince them software ought to be part of that proposition.”

OpenStack Community Challenged By Dearth Of Talent, Complexity - Page: 1 | CRN
"OpenStack talent is a rarified discipline," McKenty said, adding, "to be good with OpenStack, you need to be a systems engineer, a great programmer but also really comfortable working with hardware. You need to understand how the infrastructure works under the covers." … "There’s 2,000 people working on OpenStack on the vendor side, and the customers can’t compete with HP to hire OpenStack engineers. So they’re relying on us to make OpenStack work for them," McKenty said.

Software Defined Storage Startup Brings OpenStack Swift Object Storage Into the Enterprise | Data Center Knowledge
For one, it looks like HP Helion OEM’s SwiftStack, which is a nice partnership. Two, their CEO points towards going after enterprise storage: SwiftStack founder and CEO Joe Arnold said all enterprise applications will eventually rely on object storage to keep up with growth of data and access points required by users. ”It’s the only way enterprises will be able to compete today and in the future,” he said. I don’t cover storage too closely, but the cloud storage space seems like it’s going to be a rough street fight between the forces of customers not knowing if and how they should use it, Red Hat, the incumbent storage folks (EMC, NetApp, Dell, Oracle, etc.), and all the little startups like SwiftStack. Get some popcorn.

Linux is king *nix of the data center—but Unix may live on forever | Ars Technica
As recently as Q4 2010, Unix server revenue was 25.6 percent of the worldwide market, with Linux at 17 percent, according to IDC. By the first quarter of 2012, Linux commanded 20.7 percent of worldwide server revenue compared to Unix’s 18.3 percent. And in IDC’s most recent report covering Q2 2013, Linux was up to 23.2 percent of all revenue with $2.8 billion, while Unix fell 21 percent year over year to $1.8 billion. Unix’s Q2 server revenue of 15.1 percent was its lowest ever reported by IDC. (Windows servers account for nearly 50 percent of revenue, while IBM’s mainframes took nearly 10 percent.)

Google announces $279, Chromebook Pixel-inspired HP Chromebook 11 | Ars Technica
The $279 price seems about right, around as much as good smartphone, subsidized. Also, it comes bundle with some good bloat-ware: Finally, the laptop includes a pair of USB 2.0 ports and charging via a tablet- and phone-like micro USB port (which can also output video via the SlimPort standard, much like the recent Nexus devices). The system also comes with 100GB of Google Drive storage for two years, a 60-day free trial of Google Play Music All Access, and 12 free GoGo Inflight Internet sessions. A 4G version will be available, but pricing and availability has not been announced. I wonder if Google is paying them a subsidy.
