惠普,以及Spi Dynamics

今天刚收到的消息,惠普买下了Spi Dynamics:

Hewlett-Packard buys SPI Dynamics for undisclosed price

HP on Tuesday said it would pay an undisclosed sum to buy 140-employee SPI Dynamics Inc., a provider of Web application security assessment software and services. SPI Dynamics technology, which is already integrated with HP Quality Center software, allows customers to assess and identify security vulnerabilities along the lifecycle of Web applications

SPI的产品最终会被集成到HP Quality Center 中。

所以其实是惠普买了Mercury,Mercury买了SPI。

这个决策多少受到了IBM前不久买了WatchFire的影响。

根据IDC的估计,安全产品及服务市场规模到2010年将成长至666亿美元。

Books, Googles & Events

Books:

上周在美罗城上面的大众书局一目十几行的翻了两本书

一本是孙正义的传记,放在进门很显著的位置,书的包装和纸张很好,序言则是长得离谱,从名字(《互联网造梦人的光荣与梦想:飞得更高》)上看就猜得到是一本很青春励志的书。有件事情我算是终于搞清楚了,原来孙正义是祖籍中国的韩国人,娶了日本妻子后入了日本籍。

另外一本是高建华的《笑着离开惠普: 揭密惠普》,看名字还以为是要曝什么内幕,不过实际上是讲惠普的人性化管理,本地化的惠普之道(HP Way)。作者在惠普的经历挺有意思的,三进三出惠普,第一次离开因为跳槽去苹果电脑,第二次离开因为惠普拆出了安捷伦,第三次离开惠普后作者专职从事管理讲师。
书里作者写了这样一句话:员工离开,并不是一种对公司的背叛。
我记得我去年刚进入惠普的时候,我的manager找我谈话的时候也说到过:不能说你会一直呆在惠普,但希望你离开的时候觉得在惠普学到了很多。

Googles:

Google的两个新的在线应用,很喜欢

Markup star, edit label 和 keep unread 的功能很喜欢。

刚刚在public calendar里面搜索 ‘World Cup’ ,加到了自己的日历里面了,挺不错的。
同样是AJAX的在线日历,Google Calendar的用户体验就是要比Calendar Hub好很多,很多人应该会和我一样放弃先出来的后者选择后出来的前者,再次证明用户体验的重要性。

Events:

可以去看看的两个展览:

Love to be a [company]-er

Someone in ebay so that he love to be an ebay-er…
Someone in microsoft so that he love to be a microsoft-er…
Someone in sun so he also love to be a sun-er…

I’m in HP so I love to be an HP-er !

I joined HP 06 Kick Off Meeting today, a meeting to get conlusion of 05 and move forward to 06. See the picture below, people mountain people sea!

Here list some keyword for the great year of HP 2005:

1. Mark
Mark Hurd, the new CEO of HP instead of Carly Fiorina.

2. Cost Cutting
HP have to do this to compete with Dell, and this word also means layoff and off-shore, and also why I’m now in GDCC.

3. 20th
2005 is the 20th anniversary of China HP. HP had a great evening in Beijing with CCTV, and every employee joined that meeting.

4. Q4
Q4 of 2005 is a great milestone, revenue for HP increased 7 percent year over year to $22.9 billion (US) — that is solid top-line growth. This also means that we will get bonus at the end of this year.

5. Focus
The new bonus plan will focus on two metrics: * Improving net profit and * Revenue growth.
