Meg Whitman: ‘A new style of IT’
In a webcast with HP Software EVP George Kadifa, HP’s CEO discusses a generational evolution in enterprise IT, and how HP Software is helping CIOs rise to the challenges.
In a recent webcast, HP CEO Meg Whitman and HP Software Executive Vice President George Kadifa discussed the evolution of enterprise IT and how HP Software is preparing enterprises to compete—and succeed—in a new era.
The full 60-minute webcast is available online at HP.com/software/webcast, but Discover Performance has broken out two key highlight clips.
In the first clip, Whitman discusses where IT is going, saying we’re at a more critical point than usual in the always-in-flux world of enterprise technology.
“What’s happening today feels different to me,” she says. "Today, IT is poised to shake up even more industries. And what’s emerging out there is what I call a new style of IT. … I think IT is being challenged in ways that we haven’t seen in the last 15 years.”

The second clip tackles two viewer questions. First up: “What’s your perspective on the largest challenges and opportunities of big data, security, and cloud?”
Whitman and Kadifa tackle the three key trends, with Kadifa noting that HP is helping to make cloud technology, which has been around for a decade or so, fully enterprise-ready: “Available, accessible, secure.”
The second question is, “What are the key business and IT trends shaping your view of where HP will invest in software moving forward?” Kadifa discusses the balance of investment in HP’s existing solutions with the pursuit of new innovations. Whitman discusses her experiences at eBay and how some of the frustrations of IT back then have been transformed today.
