To be fair to Phil .....

"revenue hasn't grown on a sustained basis for some years" ... the malaise at HPE pre-dates Phil Davis. Responsibility for that lays at the feet Antonio Neri and Meg Whitman who appointed him. Since Neri was appointed in 2015, server revenue has been flat and HPE has lost about 9 points of market-share. The market-share lead over Dell has been whittled away from about 8 points down to more or less nothing. To put it into context, each point of market-share is worth around $110M/year of margin. No wonder HPE is fucked. And they will continue to be fucked, until someone wakes up and gets rid of Neri.

Someone from HPE's break-fix Services driving HPE as a business? Give me a fucking break.
