Computerworld: In a continuation of its efforts to integrate EDS with its other operations, HP said it will lay off 9,000 workers over several years as it restructures its enterprise services. The company plans to consolidate its data centers and management platforms, while moving to automate more services at the same time. Those changes will allow it to make the staff reductions and increase its cloud offerings.
HP expects to save $500 to $700 million as a result of the changes.
However, the news isn't all bad for HP employees--the company also plans to hire 6,000 new employees for other projects.
