The more details that emerge about the H-P/Autonomy debacle, the worse it looks for everyone. Reuters reports former H-P (HPQ) CEO Leo Apotheker was desperate to reach a deal with Autonomy after failing to do so with Comverse (CMVT), Amdocs (DOX), and Tibco (TIBX), and that H-P's bureaucracy and Autonomy's sales culture witnessed a huge culture clash. A Forrester analyst notes Autonomy has long failed to make needed R&D investments, and argues there hasn't been a major release of its flagship IDOL software in over 5 years.

    I really feel bad for the 80% of HP employees and Autonomy employees who will suffer due to management incompetence.... just sad. I couldn't blame anyone for jumping ship if they can.
