I understand why the changed the name, but I think they could have gotten something better. Agilent was a good name and they had a strong brand. If I saw "Keysight Technologies" written on my multimeter I would think it was made by some no name Chinese company.

Agilent was not 'well recogmized' when they split from HP either.  The principles of the company and product strength are what made Agilent well recognized.  It looks like they are taking the same approach with the latest split.  I agree the chosen name is not the most appealing.

@krisi before they call it Sunsight or something equqally creative

Sunshight, maybe? 

Our employer has recently embraced a new accounting system called Syteline, the most overblown, complicated, and useless piece of crap I've ever been forced to use.  We in engineering refer to it as " Shyteline ".

Note to Marketeers - do not use the word "Site" or Sight" in your new ultra-creative product name - too many ways for it to be ridiculed.

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