Keysight's first exhibit

Keysight's first exhibit happened this week at the IEEE EMC Symposium in Raleigh, NC. I was the first one to the booth when it opened on Tuesday.



The equipment still says Agilent.

Risk attached to new name ?

I do not think there is a big risk changing the name.

Their customers are engineers who read the specs before buying anything, and who will be able to look for the product they want once they discovered (assumed they had to stay in a cave for a while) the thing the used to buy at Agilent is no longer on catalog.

I know they can't go *back* to "Hewlett-Packard".

I just think the test & measurement core business should have stayed by that name all along.  Well, that's just my opinion.  But I see your point about the Agilent split.

With the HP/Agilent split, my take was they let the business with the stronger products take the risk with the new name, and let the company with a bunch of me-too consumer products leverage the well known brand name, using that brand name to justify higher prices and/or give consumers a resason to buy their me-too product.  In that case I would say the risk paid off, with the name Agilent becoming well recognized.  It will be interesting to see if KT can repeat the trick.

Besides, they can't use the name that was used 75 years ago, that belongs to another company (selling me-too consumer products).

So if Keysheight will be proudly doing the same business they have been doing for the last 75 years, then why not call the company the same thing it was called 75 years ago??

I do not understand this idea of spinning off one's core business into a separate company.  If a company gets into a new line of business and feels the need to split itself right down the middle, shouldn't the Execs who thought this was a great idea, come up with a NEW name for the NEW business?  And why does everyone want such lame names?

I do not understand corporate America.  I guess you can tell that.

Why do think a mission statement is important? I always find it a corporate gimmick that doesn't mean anything...how about "let's make some money while having fun doing it"?

Now that the part of Agilent that I deal wih is no more, I can tell you a story from 1999 when Agilent split from HP. A colleague of mine at the time said the name "Agilent" reminded him of "flatuent."

Name change is not desirable but ok. However, do they have new mission statement and more importantly new product range in pipeline?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
