ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
A two-headed tech monster
In the grand scheme of all things Hewlett-Packard, the firm's own information technology consulting unit, HP Services, is one small cog in an increasingly large machine. In the world of tech consulting, however, it's a very big deal indeed. The reason for that split perception is entirely a question of perspective: $20,977 million is a big number for a consulting firm, but only around 19 percent of HP's overall revenue take of $118.4 billion for 2008. Add to that the fact that the company acquired tech giant EDS for $13.9 billion in August 2008, and the folks over at HP Services could be forgiven for thinking that they're not much valued at their parent company. Little, however, could be further from the truth.
