Whitman says HP '100 percent committed' to Autonomy products

HP sought to assure its customers it would continue to develop and support Autonomy products

By , IDG News Service |  Software

Autonomy had about 50 products in five categories, Kadifa said. "This is something we expect to start sharing with customers in the first half of next year," he said.

Another customer asked about HP's plans to "right its ship."

"I've already made some big changes," Whitman said. "Mike Lynch and his entire senior management team is gone," she said, referring to Autonomy's former CEO. He was asked to leave HP earlier this year after "substantially missing his numbers," Whitman said.

Another customer wanted to know if the problems with Autonomy stemmed from a "failure of due diligence."

"I don't think so," Whitman replied. The purchase was overseen by HP 's previous management, she said -- though she acknowledged being on HP's board at the time and voting for the transaction. The auditing was handled by Deloitte, she said, "not exactly a Brand X auditor."
