Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (commonly referred to as Hewlett Packard Enterprise or HPE) is an American multinational enterprise information technology company based in Palo Alto, California, founded on 1 November 2015 as part of splitting of the Hewlett-Packard company. HPE is a business-focused organization with four divisions: Enterprise Group, which works in servers, storage, networking, consulting and support; Services; Software; and Financial Services. The split was structured so that the old Hewlett-Packard changed its name to HP Inc. and spun off Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a newly created company. HP Inc., which retained the old HPs personal computer and printing business, retained the old HPs stock-price history and the original NYSE ticker symbol for Hewlett-Packard, while Enterprise trades under its own ticker symbol: HPE. According to notes from 2015,[which?] HPEs revenue was slightly less than that of HP Inc. The full name for the company is Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, which drops the hyphen that previously existed between the "Hewlett" and "Packard" of the former Hewlett-Packard Company. During and since the separation, many media outlets have incorrectly named the new organization with some using "HP Enterprises" or "HP Enterprise".
