Business Summary
Compaq Computer Corporation is a leading global provider of enterprise technology and solutions. Compaq designs, develops, manufactures and markets hardware, software, solutions and services, including industry-leading enterprise storage and computing solutions, fault-tolerant business-critical solutions, communication products, and desktop and portable personal computers that are sold in more than 200 countries. During 2000, Compaq realigned the operations of its Enterprise Solutions and Services segment, which resulted in the formation of two reportable segments: Enterprise Computing and Compaq Global Services. These two segments accounted for 50% of consolidated revenue and 86% of segment operating income in 2000. Compaq's other two reportable segments, Commercial Personal Computing and Consumer, were unaffected by the realignment.
