|What is contract separation?
||HP is altering the way we process, manage and administer contracts to enable us to further improve the customer support experience within HP Software. As part of this improvement plan, all combined HP Hardware and HP Software contracts will be separated. As part of separation the Terms & Conditions of your contracts will remain unchanged.
Creating separate contracts for HP Software products and managing them within HP Software will ultimately enable us to serve you better by having a dedicated team of software specialists to work with you. It will also give you greater control in managing and tracking your software assets and improve visibility into your IT compliance and associated risks. Learn more
