    CPQ & HWP synergies

    The merging of these two industrial giants seems somewhat logical, even though I am still pretty much in a wait and see mode. Ms. Fiorina seems to be onto something when she talks about the tremendous synergies this merger will bring. I sincerely believe that she is onto something here which will truly spur the business ahead. However, I also see Mr. Hewlett's point - he is concerned about the potential short-term effect on profits and perhaps isn't endorsing the key synergy argument which Ms. Fiorina is endorsing. From what I can tell she is a capable executive who happens to right now be caught in a firestorm -- a situation not unique when considering the tough decision this is. I do think synergies are very much in the cards should the merger occur. As we have seen in the past, synergy can be a powerful phenomena when unleased.
