Activists often prod companies to hive off promising businesses from boring cash cows. HP’s split shows the distinction isn’t always clear. The “exciting” servers and networking offshoot is returning more capital as expansion stalls while growth stirs at the PC and printer outfit.

Sources: PCM Eyeing Misco Acquisition As Part Of United Kingdom-European Expansion – CRN

PCM, which is in the midst of an aggressive European expansion, is evaluating the acquisition of the assets of Misco, a $500 million IT solution provider headquartered in the U.K., sources said.

PCM CEO Frank Khulusi is eyeing Misco, which in March was acquired by a management team backed by private equity company Hilco Capital Limited, sources said.

“It’s a complex asset deal,” said one channel source close to PCM. “These are cheap assets that PCM could improve upon. Misco has a lot of good people and facilities in Europe.”

One potential hurdle to the deal is how large contracts with Misco customers, particularly government contracts, would be handled under an asset sale, said one source.

[Related: PCM Accelerates European Push With $4M U.K. Solution Provider Buy]

PCM, No. 25 on the 2017 CRN SP500, would not comment.

Misco could not reached for comment at press time.

In April, PCM launched a new United Kingdom and European practice led by Donavan Hutchinson, who architected solution provider behemoth CDW’s expansion into Europe with the acquisition of $850 million IT solution provider Kelway.

The potential deal would instantly give PCM more scale and global muscle with top vendors including HP, Dell EMC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, sources said.

Misco has a large e-commerce business with 40,000 products and a solutions business that includes specialists in education, health care and government.

The company, which has operations in the U.K., Ireland, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Sweden, also has an enterprise solutions group.

The potential deal comes just three weeks after the  El Segundo, Calif.-based PCM acquired Liverpool, U.K.-based The Stack Group, a 21-person IT services firm.

The Stack Group acquisition enabled PCM to accelerate the growth of its managed services and multilingual global services desk within Europe. It also provided PCM with a U.K.-based data center to deliver cloud solutions, remote management and monitoring, managed collaboration and unified communications, outsourced help desk services, and project management.

At that time, Khulusi said PCM would continue to “look for ways to accelerate market share gains” as part of an expansion to new customers in the U.K. and European markets and as a means of better serving multinational customers in North America.

Misco, which has offices in the U.K. and Scotland, several months ago confirmed that it was closing its U.K. warehouse and distribution center in Greenock, Scotland.

Enterprise Ethereum Alliance Adds 48 New Members – CoinDesk – CoinDesk

Forty-eight companies have joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, including Hewlett-Packard spin-off HP Enterprise (HPE).

The list of new members is varied, drawn from the blockchain startup ecosystem as well as the IT, finance and academic worlds. Among the new members is the University of New South Wales, which this week unveiled a new consumer loyalty research initiative that sees it offering the cryptocurrency ether as a reward for purchases. In total, 200 firms are now taking part in the initiative.

It’s perhaps unsurprising that HPE would throw its weight behind the EEA, given its recent moves around the technology. As previously reported, HPE worked with distributed ledger startup R3 to develop new solutions for its client base, and by August had already begun testing with some of its customers.

Markus Ogurek, HYPE’s global financial services industry lead, said in a statement:

“Joining the EEA is a significant step for Hewlett Packard Enterprise in making blockchain enterprise-ready and accelerating our customers’ journey to production.”

First revealed in January, the EEA formally debuted in late February with the backing of major firms like JPMorgan Chase, British Petroleum (BP), Microsoft and a number of other established companies and blockchain startups.

Since then, it’s attracted new members like Japanese teleccom KDDI, the government of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh and Sberbank, Russia’s largest banking firm.

Tijdens dit bezoek maakte men op een luchtige en laagdrempelige wijze kennis met de laatste ontwikkelingen op het gebied van automatisering. Men nam een kijkje in de verbluffende wereld van 3D printen aan de hand van verschillende voorbeelden en demonstraties. Na deze enerverende presentaties stond er een heerlijke lunch voor de gasten klaar en kon men de ervaringen uitwisseling.

Vervolgens maakte men kennis met de laatste ontwikkelingen van HP middels een virtuele werkelijkheid of schijnwerkelijkheid. Hierbij werd een omgeving gesimuleerd via een computer om de gebruiker via diverse zintuigen onder te dompelen in een wel heel bijzondere onderwaterwereld. Een beleving om nooit te vergeten. Met een ervaring rijker werd de middag afgesloten met een drankje en een bitterbal en konden de gasten nog even lekker napraten.
