Description

Hewlett-Packard (HP) had a narrow but dynamic business marketplace in the 1970s through the 1990s, primarily based on the HP-3000 computer series and its successors. HP's commercial software offerings were complemented by software products and associated services from a small, active group of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Value Added Resellers (VARs). This session discusses the growth of these ISVs and VARs and provides an insight into how these companies contributed to this part of HP's corporate history and the minicomputer history at large.
