Chat with HP CEO Leo Apotheker

Leo Apotheker – CEO HP and AlwaysOn editor Tony Perkins

Here at the OnDemand 2011, plenty of talk here at HP HQ in Palo Alto about social information, cloud technology and where technology will zoom off to.

Leo Apotheker – CEO,  HP mentioned a few things during the conference about being a CEO, “It’s a huge opportunity but it is a burden. ” And he added, “You learn much more from your mistakes than what you do well.”

Some thoughts that he said about how to creating a strong company include:

1-   Need strong team (but power creates arrogance)
2 – Be paranoid about competition
3- Customers are the lifeblood of any company
4- Need to be fiercely competitive

Three coming impacts:

1-Telecomputing
2-Connectivity and mobility
3-Consumerism of IT

We’re off to another cloud.
