HP Boosts .Net Expertise

Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft plan to spend $25 million each over the next 2-1/2 years to hire and train HP sales and consulting staff on Microsoft .Net technologies for building distributed software applications. Even as HP adds staff to push software development, the company last week said it will cut an additional 1,800 jobs by October 2003 as part of its merger with Compaq.

HP plans to hire up to 2,000 salespeople to push hosting, consulting, and support contracts that derive from development projects on Microsoft's .Net platform -- a new way of writing applications that run on Windows, says Rick Fricchione, HP's VP of enterprise Microsoft services. The investment also involves training an additional 3,000 salespeople and 5,000 software consultants on .Net.
