Description

Hewlett - Packard Corporation is going to expand its business in Central Europe. HP management decided to increase the employment in HP operational centres in Slovakia. New IT specialists will deal with implementation of SAP software as well as own HP products in companies. The number of employees in HP operational centres in Bratislava will increase from current 1,300 to 1,600 by the end of 2007. According to Ms. Ursula Cerny, manager of HP outsourcing services in Slovakia, Hewlett-Packard's business expansion in Slovakia responds to the increasing number of HP clients in Central and Eastern Europe requiring specialised IT services, including implementation of SAP software.
