Ovum comments: Mike Lynch to leave HP
"Mike Lynch's departure from HP seems counter-intuitive in light of the company's intention to reinvest in R&D following its planned layoffs. Lynch is a technology visionary, and parting company on the basis of poor sales execution in the division, indicates that HP has struggled to create a clear vision for how to leverage its very expensive acquisition.
"Since the acquisition, HP has allowed Autonomy to run autonomously (admittedly somewhat at Lynch's behest), including maintaining separate R&D functions, but this has made it difficult to benefit from the company's core technology within the broader HP portfolio, just at a time when it is one of the hottest areas for enterprise investment.
