The prophecy's last step is finally became a reality at HPE Discover. Once HPE fully transitions to a Service company (goodbye in-house and even subcontracted WW manufacturing and supply chain), its streamlined vertical business model will be very attractive for the grand finale (the acquisition by a company such as Microsoft, Google or Amazon).
The Goliath's prophecy came out to be true after all. HPE transitioning into a Services company in the next 3 years is the final demise of the legacy. Long live the New Tech Kings (NTKs).
