Data sharing Data sharing needs accountability, says Tim Berners-Lee at IP Expo in London The question of how much data an indi-vidual should share was a key theme of Tim Berners-Lee’s keynote speech at IP Expo in London. Addressing a packed con-ference room, the father of the web said opening up data for clinical trials is the only way to solve big problems and, in the event of a road accident, he would want any doctor to access his records.

Cliff Saran explores the reasons behind HP’s strategy and how it will proceed HP announces plans to split business amid changes in technology industry H P’s decision to split its business in two is a pragmatic reaction to the changing way businesses and consumers buy IT. When Meg Whitman took over as CEO of HP in 2011 she could not have anticipated taking the company in an almost identical path to that proposed by her predecessor, Léo Apotheker. Three years ago, Apotheker was fired after he decided to dump HP’s PC business and spent £7bn acquiring Autonomy to focus on software. Now Whitman is splitting HP in two, a move unlikely to have been part of her srcinal plan to reinvent the ailing IT giant. High-risk strategy When HP splits into two businesses, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise will offer a portfolio of technology infrastructure, software and services for corporate IT needs, while HP Inc will target the personal systems and printing markets.This is a high-risk strategy. In its last quarter, HP reported a 12% increase in sales in the personal systems division. In its services business, outsourcing revenue was $3.5bn, down 8% year-on-year, while applications and business services revenue was $2.1bn, down 4%.“The age of the customer is changing the technology industry, especially for companies with a portfolio focused on hardware and maintenance services,” said Peter Burris, research director at analyst Forrester Research. “Companies need to differentiate on software that improves business technology.”But HP’s software and services businesses have been struggling compared with its PC business, where HP is still the top global manufacturer.Last year, research company Gartner said: “HP’s revenues are still dependent on hardware sales, and revenues in new areas haven’t grown enough to return HP to overall growth. HP has suffered from a lack of effective innovation in key segments such as cloud, tablets and mobility.”Gartner’s most recent data on PC market share showed HP is the top PC supplier in Europe with 20.5% market share and had a strong quarter, shipping 4.61 million units.Gartner suggested HP’s server consolidation, virtualisation and cloud computing were driving down IT infrastructure costs, eroding the company’s application outsourcing revenues.Financial analyst Kurt Avard said HP’s PC business was doing well, but warned: “Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, on the other hand, will be in dire straits. Already struggling to cope with under-performing divisions, there is a better than 50% chance that the company will crumble within five years. Even if it somehow manages to limp through the first years of its existence, long-term viability will be minimal at best.”  HP rivals expected to exploit split move HP buys Eucalyptus as it bets on open cloud future HP will split into two separate companies: One focusing on PCs and printers, the other on enterprise computing
