Thread regarding Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) layoffs ... that's the new HPE CSC Company name.

The email went out to HPE staff about an hour ago. The email is very long and full of buzz words to get us geeked up (insert eye roll). What the announcement lacks is what the heck does DXC stand for? Did they just pick any three letters?? Why is the T in technology lower case... so many questions ..

DXE In conjunction with Modis hold the SSC contract for Government of Canada. They get paid 265.20/day (standard GoC helpdesk contract) (for a FIRST level help desk... mine is a 2nd level: Add 5K/yr.. at least.).. that's $37.95/hr. Standard cost is 1.2X hourly wages (IE, taxes, etc). the average employee is getting $18/hr on this, new hires more, older hires... less An employee making 18.5/hr costs them 22.2/hr... meaning.. they're pocketing almost 16/hr on our backs. They do ANYTHING to avoid giving a pittance of a raise, and keep coming up with excuses for not being able to pay more.

DXE - d---s..

by | Post ID:

It was long ago when HP started getting into computers, they decided to turn away from their core competencies. They started buying their way into the market. Who a company developed a superior product that HP wanted, they purchased the company. They then tried to compete in the workstation market but that was held by Apollo and Silicon Graphics along with IBM and DEC. The volume and revenue leader at the time was Apollo. HP purchased Apollo and their customers. Within a 2 year timeframe, all Apollo employees gone and the products faded away. They purchased other companies and the same occurred with them. They purchased Compaq and within a year the entire European management teams and IT resources, systems and infrastructure to support European customers was gone. BTW, all of the products and intellectual properties were also gone. What they had left where confused customers. HP changed their entire structure and operating model every 9 to 12 months. Changes in VP's, organizations, systems, customer focus were constantly changing until around 2007 customers started leaving because they could no longer trust HP what they were publicly telling customers and the industry at large. They purchased EDS, CSC to try and get into the consulting business which was a major flop. Now they just change the name in the hopes that customers will come back to a new company. Yet the problem still exists. HP or HPE still doesn't understand who they are or want to be anymore. IBM on the other hand is just standing by, watching all of this unfold and with an open door, inviting ex-HP customers to observe what they have to offer. When IBM speaks the words "Business Solution" that's what they really mean and they can prove it.

What does DXC stand for?

DXC is not an acronym. The name DXC is a reference to our mission, which is leading clients on their

digital transformation journeys. The X is a reference to the company, being a force multiplier, enabling

clients to seize the opportunities presented by today’s rapidly changing technologies

Our name should be used as DXC Technology in emails and letters

In url's its in lower case and there is a "." because URL's are normally in lower case

the lower case T is definitely not a typo. It is present on the official website

It stands for Dont Xpect Communication or

Dont Xpect Compensation or

Dont Xpect a Career

I'm pretty sure it must be one of these.

The evidence suggests it's entirely random.

by | Post ID:

Presumably the name comes from CSC's recent acquisition of Australian IT services company UXC? What those letters stand for, and the "D", who knows. Either that or they have literally arbitrarily selected 3 meaningless letters and stuck the word "technology" on the end...?

DXC ~ Dixie = down south = where the company is heading?

DXC = 590 = chinese slang for go find out yourself

DXC = decades of brand equity in HP and CSC goes 'down south'

That's too funny.

DXC is so all about 590.

Actually what is more funny is that we've all come up with this stuff in a very short amount of time and the so called brand experts and the board didn't spot any of this.

To add the Urban Dictionary point...

Our New Company, Our New Name

Today, we have exciting news: The name of the new company formed by the proposed merger of CSC and HPE ES will be DXC Technology.

The announcement today includes just our new name and logo. The full launch of our new brand will take place worldwide in conjunction with our listing on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “DXC,” planned for April 3, 2017.

Trust, Transform, Thrive

With a mission of leading clients on their digital transformation journeys, DXC Technology will be recognized globally as a force multiplier, enabling clients to seize the opportunities presented by today’s rapidly changing technologies.

The DXC Technology brand will be built on a foundation of trust and transformation, with a relentless drive to help clients thrive on change.

• Trust: Clients are betting their future on us. And we have the combined experience and calm hand to lead them through technology-driven business transformation like no other company.

• Transform: Together, we will have greater resources, better talent and larger global reach than ever before to help our clients transform, giving them the confidence to manage accelerating change.

• Thrive: By positioning ourselves as uniquely able to help clients thrive on change, we’ve captured a truth that will only become more essential with time.

A Unique and Highly Differentiated Value Proposition

Over decades, CSC and HPE ES have successfully transformed our businesses and met the challenges of innovation, helping to guide the world’s largest enterprises and government agencies through multiple change cycles.

Together as DXC Technology, our technology independence, world-class talent and industry-leading partner ecosystem will provide a clear and confident vision for the future.

• Technology independence: Through our partnerships with the world’s leading technology providers, we will deliver the best, most proven solutions to de-risk technology investments.

• World-class talent: We are going to invest to attract and upskill the talent who will lead global business tomorrow.

• Confident guidance: We have met the challenges of innovation many times before, and have a clear and confident vision for navigating the future.

Our brand story will reflect our CLEAR values:

• Client-focused, Leadership, Execution excellence, Aspiration, and Results

Shaping Our Brand

Since we announced the CSC-HPE ES merger in May 2016, defining the brand identity of our new company has been a chief priority. Our integrated CSC-ES team has been working in collaboration with leadership and the global brand firm Siegel+Gale on a brand strategy that reflects the true expression of our new company’s mission, vision, values and culture.

The group explored a great many options, including many that were crowd-sourced from inside and outside our companies. We sought a brand that would be fresh, distinctive, and highly differentiated. We worked to create a brand that would set us apart, yet represent the best qualities of where we’ve been and, most importantly, what we aspire to be going forward.

The framework established to shape our brand identity embraces these core attributes:

• Differentiates us from the competition

• Clarifies what we promise and deliver

• Drives preference

• Inspires employees

• Guides go-to-market investments

The DXC Technology Brand Identity

Creating a new brand should send a signal that DXC Technology is going to be more than just a bigger company. DXC Technology will lead clients through accelerating change, helping them harness the power of technology to deliver new outcomes to transform their business.

• We are an experienced hand who has met the challenges of innovation many times before, and has a clear and confident vision for navigating the future.

• We work with clients, at their side, to solve complex challenges in ways that minimize business risk and maximize opportunity.

• We operate differently: Our world-class talent becomes part of our client’s team, innovating with them and putting the right technology to work for them. We partner with other technology leaders. And we invest in building collaborative client relationships that flex and grow to help meet new challenges with confidence, speed and agility.

• We bring assured authority to every challenge: We look change squarely in the face and see the opportunity in it. We work with the confidence of having before met the challenges of innovation.

Bringing DXC Technology to Life

Today’s brand reveal is a “soft” launch intended to inform our community, including our clients and partners who are some of our key stakeholders. We are issuing a press release and making a requisite filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

We will fully launch the DXC Technology brand in a big way globally, among all of our stakeholders, following the transaction close. Day 1 is currently scheduled for Monday, April 3. Until that time, please take the time to:

• View this brief introductory video and sizzle reel that provide additional insight on the DXC Technology brand.

• View the FAQs that will guide you through the guardrails around our new name and logo.

It’s important to note that the DXC Technology brand should NOT be actively used in any materials until our new company’s debut.

We will continue to communicate regularly about our progress and activities, and to seek your thoughts and ideas on the merger along the way. An archive of prior communications about the merger is available on the ES Spin Merger News site.

We hope that you share our excitement and passion for our new company’s brand and future. Thank you for your continued energy, enthusiasm and hard work.

  • Mike

I wonder if anyone consulted the Urban Dictionary before choosing this name:


DXC (dumb--s core) is derived from making fun of sXe (straightedge) It is a clique made up of cool kids that like good music, but are a bit ditzy at times.. Well, to tell yout he truth, they are dumb--ses.

DXC guy: "Hey, lets go rape a goat"

REG guy: "Dude.. you are sooo DXC"

I think today we are all DXC...
