Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman on Thursday said that the company has a bright future ahead, although it will take some time to rebuild after a year of disappointment, reports The Wall Street Journal. Within two to three years, Whitman expects the company to best be known for cloud computing, security and tools that help businesses better manage their data. Whitman also announced that the Palo Alto-based manufacturer plans to release a tablet later this year that will run Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 operating system. The company’s previous tablet, the HP TouchPad, ran webOS and was canceled two months after its lackluster launch. As for how the company intends to position its upcoming tablet, Whitman believes the best way for HP to gain tablet market share is to focus on the enterprise market.
