Just after stepping down as CEO of India’s second largest IT company Infosys, Vishal Sikka might be joining Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as chief technology officer (CTO) as per the report
Infosys co-founder N R Narayana Murthy had said Sikka was not fit for a CEO’s role he was rather good for a chief technology officer’s job at Infosys.
The American multinational Heweltt Packard Enterprise is also headquartered in PA.
Meg Whitman is the present chairman of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
Sikka setting up his office in Silicon Valley was also seen as a bone of contention between founders and the board during the months long exchange of words.
For Sikka, moving to HP will not be a big problem as he is already based there.
Last year, the then chief technology officer Martin Fink left the company, since then the place has not been filled.
Before joining Infosys in August 2014, Sikka was working with Germany’s SAP, an enterprise software company.
