IT pair eye corporates

Industry giants Microsoft and HP will invest US$300m over the next three years to expand their strategic alliance and develop offerings for enterprise customers around the world

Industry giants Microsoft and HP will invest US$300m over the next three years to expand their strategic alliance and develop offerings for enterprise customers around the world.

The two companies will splash the cash on collaborative efforts in solution development, testing, validation, deployment, and joint sales and marketing.

HP claims that the deal makes it the first premier global partner to deliver comprehensive solutions for Microsoft's people ready business (PRB) vision. That vision centres on the concept that people, armed with the right software, are the key to driving business success.

"With the recent announcement of the largest product launch to business customers in our company's history with Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system, we are bringing to market more than 30 new products and services in the next year that will further enable people ready businesses," said Kevin Turner, COO, at Microsoft.

He adds that the partnership will give more than 20,000 joint clients access to an expanded set of solutions and services.
