DXC Technology: the next services giant


The new company to be formed by the proposed merger of CSC and the enterprise services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise will be called DXC Technology.

The merger of CSC and HPE Enterprise Services was announced in May 2016.

On completion in early April, the deal will create one of the world's top IT services companies with US$26 billion in annual revenues and nearly 6000 clients in over 70 countries.

"With a mission of leading clients on their digital transformation journeys, DXC Technology will be recognised globally as a force multiplier, enabling clients to seize the opportunities presented by today's rapidly changing technologies," said CSC chairman, president and chief executive, Mike Lawrie.

"The DXC Technology brand will be built on a foundation of trust and transformation, and a relentless drive to help clients thrive on change. We will focus on producing greater value for clients, partners and shareholders, along with growth opportunities for our people."

Lawrie will become chairman, president and chief executive of DXC Technology when the merger is completed.

Until the completion of the merger, CSC and HPE ES will operate as separate organisations.

All necessary regulatory clearances for the merger have been granted, the companies have announced.

HPE Enterprise Services came about as a result of the then HP's 2008 acquisition of EDS.

In 2015, the "old" CSC split into two companies. The government services business was merged with SRA to form CSRA. The "new" CSC went on to acquire other companies, including Australia's UXC, before the merger with HPE Enterprise Systems was announced.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
