Why?

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.

Strange move...they dillute dthe brand name to zero...from well respected HP to well recognized Agilent to no name Keysight...maybe they are priming themselves for aquisition by China Inc

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.

True, it too a while for teh Agilent' name to be recognized...but it was HP doing the recognition...and at least it sounded like a technology company...who came up with Keysight???

Maybe we all should chime in on the name before they call it Sunsight or something equqally creative ;-)

@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?

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.
