However, the challenge imposed on the company due to the acquisition of EMC by Dell is somewhat of a headwind. of Hewlett Packard’s total revenues come from businesses outside the U.S. Per current macroeconomic situations, U.S. dollar value is expected to remain stronger compared to other currencies due to which the top line is likely to be negatively impacted over the next few quarters."

The Intelligent Edge is 8% of revenue and grew a very strong 14% YY in cc and is mostly Aruba networking. Finally, Financial Services was 11% of revenue and grew 1% in CC. The growth came from a good macro, when taking out FX.
