Winston Churchill once said of Russia, “It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.” Now, I don’t deal with international politics. I just write about technology. But when I’ve looked at HP lately I’ve been left thinking of its strategy as, well, “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.”
What prompted this thought was HP’s recent public cloud dance. First, it seemed that HP, as far as The New York Times and anyone else who followed up on the story could tell, was going to walk away from the public cloud.
