Information technology giant Hewlett-Packard revealed plans on Friday to further integrate IT consulting firm EDS into its operations arm in order to boost its products and services offerings.

EDS will now be integrated into HP’s Technology Solutions Group, which offers services related to software, hardware, support and consulting.

“We are ahread of schedule with the integration of EDS and combining TSG and EDS is the next step in that process,” said HP chairman and CEO Mark Hurd.

When HP announced the acquisition of EDS in May 2008, it said ti would fold its outsourcing business into a new, Texas-based unit, “EDS – an HP company.” Once the acquisition was complete in late August, HP moved its outsourcing and application services business to EDS.

In mid-September, HP revealed plans to integrate EDS into its own operations and implement a three-year restructuring plan that would involve cutting 24,600 jobs.

EDS, now part of the Technology Solutions Group, will still be based in Plano, Texas and keep offering IT services, application services and business process outsourcing. Ron Rittenmeyer, EDS president and CEO, will retire by the end of the year and be replaced by EDS senior vice president Joe Eazor, who previously served as the executive vice president of corporate strategy and business development at EDS. Eazor will report directly to TSG executive vice president Ann Livermore.
