Testimonial: Lionel Lapras, HP

Lionel Lapras, HP in Sophia Antipolis
At an event celebrating HP’s 50 years in France, Lionel Lapras, Site manager for HP’s R&D office at Sophia Antipolis, spoke about the importance of his office in the global company. “We have international influence and undertake many responsibilities. Our team are at the heart of the revolution in virtual telecom.”

The CEO of Hewlett-Packard France, Gérald Karsenti, reminded the global leadership of his firm, that across the world, only his site offers “end to end” technology. “The Sophia site is very important for HP. Here we have an exclusive skill-set dealing with extremely strategic fields… This skill-set is invaluable to the new-style information technology that we want to create.” Karsenti continued, “50 years is nothing to sneeze at. HP France is today one of the 5 highest performing subsidiaries in the world. Quite an achievement, especially in France, when you consider that international affiliates all deal with the same challenges in flexibility and the cost of work.”

The American technological giant is focused today on cloud computing, big data, flexibility and security to assure its continued growth. HP has also confirmed that it is going to split its activities into two parts in the near future. One side will work on building computers and printers and the other will focus on services.

The 200 employees at HP Sophia that work on cloud, digital security and media entertainment will be moving in November 2014 to a new site with 2,700m² (more than 29,000 ft²) site at Mougin that has been name Marco Polo and will be places with the office of Lab Systèmes.
