Alliance: Cisco, HP, and EDS line up

Hewlett-Packard, Cisco Systems, and Electronic Data Systems (EDS) have formed an electronic-business alliance, which EDS' Electronic Business unit will lead.

The alliance intends to position itself as a single stop for establishing Web-based businesses in the business-to-business and business-to-consumer arenas.

The three companies will combine EDS' consulting and systems-integration capabilities with Cisco's Internet networking technology and HP's security servers and software.

EDS will also deploy a global solutions centre with HP and Cisco to offer testing and integration of electronic-business offerings.

The alliance will target companies in industries such as sports and entertainment, retail/financial, telecommunications, procurement, and distribution.

None of the companies would comment on the financial aspect of the agreement.
