It is past the half year point in 2019 and this year is supposed to be the last year of the so called "HPE Next" initiative that started about 3 years ago. Are any WFRs or Early retirement offers in the works? Time will tell.

Yeah, the stock has been stagnant which means the board might try to nudge it up by any means including some new 'HPE Next' (euphemism for purge) initiative.
They're in a dog fight with Nutanix, Dell EMC, and Pure Storage for Hyper Converged systems so there is still that market left for hybrid clouds. But layoffs will be continuous because cost cutting is the only way to keep their stock afloat short of innovation which takes a long time.
They still exist and are quite large. How long remains to be seen. The PC/printing side HPQ was considered the loser side but they have been doing better than HPE although I suspect the 21st century is catching up with both side now.
At last count they still have 60,000 workers
Does HPE still exist? I thought by now there wouldn't be many people left.
