H-P's (HPQ +0.8%) internal processes are being overhauled left and right, says tech/operations chief John Hinshaw ahead of today's shareholder meeting. The changes, which cover sales, procurement, and much else, may have contributed to H-P's FQ1 EPS beat. A lot of the changes involve the use of cloud software: Hinshaw claims H-P has the world's largest Salesforce (CRM) and Workday (WDAY) implementations (ORCL software was replaced) and that using Salesforce has led to huge improvements in sales efficiency and job satisfaction.

    surprised HPQ is not up even more than 70% year to date, with everyone more satisfied with their job and all...

    John Hinshaw "is executive vice president of Technology & Operations at Hewlett Packard".

    Not exactly an unbiased source. Of course he's going to say positive things about the direction of the company. HP was also saying great things about its appointment of Leo Apotheker and its Autonomy acquisition. How'd that go?

     

    Good luck to Meg, but PR spin is just that.

    I doubt it, that CRM and HCM change will make much of a diference.
