Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (HPE) is a US multinational information provider. The company is publicly traded in the New York Stock Exchange. HPE was founded in November 2015, following the split of the Hewlett-Packard (HP) Company into two independent companies: Hewlett Packard Inc. (HPI) and HPE. HPI is the legal successor of HP.
In 2009, EDS Israel merged into HP under the name “HP Enterprise Services”. EDS Israel headed a consortium which won a contract with the Ministry of Defense and the Israel Police to develop, install and maintain the Basel System, an automated biometric access control system installed and maintained in checkpoints in the occupied West Bank and the Erez checkpoint in Gaza (valued at 8-10 million USD). The system, financed by the US government, included a permit system for Palestinian workers, with hand and facial recognition, and biometric magnetic cards, which became mandatory for all Palestinians from the occupied West Bank who wish to enter Israel since 2005. The Basel System was terminated in late 2016.
Following the split of HP into HPE and HPI in 2015, and the subsequent spin-off and merger of HPE’s enterprise services business with CSC to form DXC Technology in April 2017, HP’s occupation-related business was divided between the various companies.
HPE, which specializes in the manufacturing and marketing of storage and server hardware, retains several involvements through its principal Israeli subsidiary, Hewlett Packard (Israel) Ltd.
The company continues to provide the Israeli Population and Immigration Authority with itanium servers for the operation of the Aviv System, the computerization system of Israel’s Population and Immigration Authority, formerly operated by the now defunct Hewlett Packard (HP) Company. The Aviv system includes the “Yesha database,” which contains information on the Israeli citizens in the settlements. HPE is contracted by the Population and Immigration Authority until 8 July 2020 to provide and mantain the servers for the total amount of 212,318 USD. The company is the sole manufacturer of itanium servers, the only servers that can support the operating system of the Aviv System.
HPE is also contracted until 30 June 2018 to maintain VC systems for the Israeli police for the amount of 366,000 NIS.
