To: HP and Compaq Employees
From: Peter Blackmore 
I am pleased to announce the leadership of the new 
Enterprise Systems Group (ESG), one of the four operating 
business groups previously announced in the new HP. Once 
the merger is complete, ESG will represent a formidable 
strategic partner for our customers capable of delivering 
powerful, industry-leading products and solutions across 
the entire enterprise. 
Our combined enterprise market leadership will be 
impressive - No. 1 in Windows-based servers, Linux servers, 
UNIX servers and fault tolerant systems, No. 1 in 
enterprise storage and No. 1 in management software. We 
will have the scope, scale and capabilities to challenge 
any competitor in the enterprise space.
Global Business Units
ESG will be made up of seven global business units, under 
the following leadership:

organization will deliver end-to-end, infrastructure and

worldwide responsibility for Compaq's leadership in the 
ProLiant server, management and attached storage markets. 
Under Mary's leadership, the Compaq ProLiant server line 
has expanded to address customers' evolving needs for 
Internet infrastructure and access, ranging from hyper-
dense thin server blades to the industry's leading 8-Way 
servers. Mary has been a part of Compaq's industry standard 
server business since its inception in the late 80s. She

headed the Networked Systems Business Unit. Scott led the

improvements, and consistently reported profits well above 
the HP average and above key UNIX server competitors.
