Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) has bought two IT service management companies that specialize in consultancy and training. Great Britain-based CEC Europe Service Management, and US-based IT Infrastructure Management — which trades as ManageOne — will both be integrated into HP's services arm. IT service management forms a key part of HP's Adaptive Enterprise strategy, which helps organizations cope with rapid change. The acquisition of the two companies makes HP the market leader in the field, and training is a key component. 'They are experts in IT services management," said Phil Lawman, HP's education services director. "We are bringing expertise, and we are bringing in intellectual property, to strengthen our already leading portfolio and capabilities." Although the companies won't operate independently, HP is keen to continue to do business with their customers. HP believes that the market for IT service management is likely to increase over the next few years, and is keen to expand its offering accordingly.
