Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins tells us how he led the $200 billion company to growth when everybody expected it to get crushed in the cloud wars (CSCO)

When John Chambers announced his retirement as CEO of Cisco, he hand-picked Chuck Robbins to be his successor. And when Robbins officially took over, he called his shot: Under his leadership, Cisco would move faster — much faster — to stay ahead of the changing times.  At the time, Cisco was still a Silicon Valley powerhouse, but doubts were beginning to swirl. Companies were moving to Amazon's cloud, or Microsoft's, or Google's, in a trend that's only accelerated in the years since. And the mo...

How 3 Detroit Founders Built Tech Startups Despite City’s Bankruptcy

On July 18th, 2013, the city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, becoming the largest city in American history to do so. Just four years earlier, Chrysler and General Motors—automobile companies that were long a staple of the Detroit economy—had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.“You hear stories about the Great Depression in the ‘30s, I can only imagine what we experienced here in Detroit matched that. It was a scary time with so many negatives. There was no credit, the auto companies were...

Cisco CEO Warns Higher Tariffs Will Force Companies to Cut R&D

U.S. companies will end up absorbing the costs of higher tariffs, spending less on the research and development that can lead to technological breakthroughs, Robbins said during a meeting with government officials in D.C. earlier this month. "If we go to the next wave in tariffs, tech companies in the U.S. will have to absorb that and cut back in R&D when what they want us to do is lead in innovation,” Robbins said in an interview at Bloomberg’s New York office Wednesday.

HP and Hewlett Packard Enterprise will pay a $25 million settlement to salespeople who sued over messed up pay (HP, HPE)

After a nine-year court battle that began years before Hewlett Packard split into two companies, HP salespeople that sued the company are expecting to receive thousands of dollars in settlement fees. The salespeople sued, claiming that HP's computer systems weren't tracking commissions properly and they weren't getting paid in a timely manner. Complaints about pay for salespeople dragged on for years, long after the company split. In 2017, an HP executive apologized to salespeople about the on...

Amazon's latest cloud product is dangerous for Cisco and Dell but really scary for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, analyst says (AMZN, CSCO, HPE, DELL)

When Amazon Web Services announced a new product called Outposts, the tech world stood up and took notice. They saw Amazon entering into the one cloud-computing market where it had no game: "Hybrid" computing, the segment of the cloud where Microsoft dominates. But a new report by UBS analyst John Roy points out that the true disruption of Outposts is this: Amazon will be putting its own home-grown data-center hardware — originally designed for its own use — into customers' private data center...

All of the major tech companies are going their separate ways, making things more difficult for regulators

Investors fell in love with a basket of stocks they called FAANG (for Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google) and rode those investments up a tall curve for years. Policymakers and regulators found it convenient to paint a single big target on "the big tech platforms" as the spate of privacy- and election-related controversies since 2016 raised calls for government action. But the closer the government looks at the companies' problems, the harder it gets to settle on any one-size-fits-al...
