Compaq a portmanteau of Compatibility And Qualityoccasionally referred to as CQ prior to its final logo was an American information technology company founded in that developed, sold, and supported computers and related products and services. Pfeiffer served through the s. Ben Rosen provided the venture capital financing for the fledgling company and served as chairman of the board for 17 years from until September 28,when he retired and was succeeded by Michael Capellaswho served as the last chairman and CEO until its merger with HP.
Prior to its takeover the company was headquartered in northwest unincorporated Harris CountyTexasthat now continues as HP 's largest United States facility.
The three of them had left due to lack of faith and loss of confidence in TI's management, and initially considered but ultimately decided against starting a chain of Mexican restaurants.
The first Compaq PC was sketched out on a placemat by Ted Papajohn while dining with the founders in a pie shop,   named House of Pies in Houston. Their first venture capital came from Benjamin M. Unlike many startups, Compaq differentiated its offerings from the many other IBM clones by not focusing mainly on price, but instead concentrating on new features, such as portability and better graphics displays as well as performance—and all at prices comparable to those of IBM's PCs.
In contrast to Dell Computer and GatewayCompaq hired veteran engineers with an average of 15 years experience, which lent credibility to Compaq's reputation of reliability among customers. Under Canion's direction, Compaq sold computers only through dealers to avoid potential competition that a direct sales channel would foster, which helped foster loyalty among resellers.
By giving dealers considerable leeway in pricing Compaq's offerings, either a significant markup for more profits or discount for more sales, dealers had a major incentive to advertise Compaq. Other key executives responsible for the company's meteoric growth in the late 80s and early 90s were Ross A. Cooley, another former IBM associate, who served for many years as SVP of GM North America; Michael Swavely, who was the company's chief marketing officer in the early years, and eventually ran the North America organization, later passing along that responsibility to Cooley when Swavely retired.
In the United States, Brendan A. Area of Operations. These executives, along with other key contributors, including Kevin Ellington, Douglas Johns, Steven Flannigan, and Gary Stimac, helped the company compete against the IBM Corporation in all personal computer sales categories, after many predicted that none could compete with the behemoth.
The soft-spoken Canion was popular with employees and the culture that he built helped Compaq to attract the best talent. Instead of headquartering the company in a downtown Houston skyscraper, Canion chose a West Coast-style campus surrounded by forests, where every employee had similar offices and no-one not even the CEO had a reserved parking spot. At semi-annual meetings, turnout was high as any employee could ask questions to senior managers.
Incompany co-founder Bill Murto resigned to study at a religious education program at the University of St. Murto had helped to organize the company's marketing and authorized-dealer distribution strategy, and held the post of senior vice president of sales since June Murto was succeeded by Ross A. Cooley, director of corporate sales. Cooley would report to Michael S. Swavely, vice president for marketing, who has been given increased responsibility and the title of vice president for sales and marketing.
The Compaq Portable was one of the progenitors of today's laptop ; some called it a "suitcase computer" for its size and the look of its case. The Compaq Portable was the first in the range of the Compaq Portable series. Furthermore, Microsoft had kept the right to license the operating system to other computer manufacturers.
Unlike other companies, Compaq did not bundle application software with its computers. Vice President of Sales and Service H. Sparks said in early . We've considered it, and every time we consider it we reject it.
I don't believe and our dealer network doesn't believe that bundling is the best way to merchandise those products. You remove the freedom from the dealers to really merchandise when you bundle in software.The company was founded in a one-car garage in Palo Alto, California by Bill Hewlett and David Packard inand initially produced a line of electronic test and measurement equipment.
The company got its first big contract inproviding its test and measurement instruments for production of Walt Disney 's hugely successful animated film Fantasia. The company grew into a multinational corporation widely respected for its products, and its management style and culture known as the HP Way, which was adopted by other businesses worldwide. Major product lines included personal computing devices, enterprise and industry standard servers, related storage devices, networking products, software and a diverse range of printers and other imaging products.
HP directly marketed its products to households, small- to medium-sized businesses and enterprises as well as via online distribution, consumer-electronics and office-supply retailers, software partners and major technology vendors. HP also offered services and a consulting business for its products and partner products. InHewlett-Packard Company spun off its electronic and bio-analytical test and measurement instruments business as Agilent Technologies ; HP retained focus on its later products, including computers and printers.
In NovemberHP announced its acquisition of 3Com with the deal closing on April 12, On November 1,the company spun off its enterprise products and services business Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
Hewlett-Packard retained the personal computer and printer businesses and was renamed HP Inc. Bill Hewlett and David Packard graduated with degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in The company originated in a garage in nearby Palo Alto during a fellowship they had with past professor Frederick Terman at Stanford during the Great Depression.
They considered Terman a mentor in forming Hewlett-Packard. InHewlett and Packard decided to formalize their partnership. Of the many projects they worked on, their first financially successful product was a precision audio oscillator known as the Model HPA. Their innovation was the use of a small incandescent light bulb known as a "pilot light" as a temperature dependent resistor in a critical portion of the circuit, the negative feedback loop which stabilized the amplitude of the output sinusoidal waveform.
The Model series of generators continued production until at least as the AB, still tube-based but improved in design through the years. They worked on counter-radar technology and artillery shell proximity fuzes during World War II, which allowed Packard but not Hewlett to be exempt from the draft.
HP's line of products during the war included the audio oscillator, a wave analyzer, distortion analyzers, an audio-signal generator, and the Model A vacuum-tube voltmeterand employed people. Inthe company incorporated with Packard as president. He handed the presidency over to Hewlett when he became chairman inbut remained CEO of the company. HP is recognized as the symbolic founder of Silicon Valleyalthough it did not actively investigate semiconductor devices until a few years after the " traitorous eight " had abandoned William Shockley to create Fairchild Semiconductor in Hewlett-Packard's HP Associates division, established arounddeveloped semiconductor devices primarily for internal use.
During the s, HP partnered with Sony and the Yokogawa Electric companies in Japan to develop several high-quality products. The products were not a huge success, as there were high costs involved in building HP-looking products in Japan. HP spun off the small company Dynac to specialize in digital equipment. The name was picked so that the HP logo could be turned upside down to be a reflected image of the logo of the new company.
Eventually, Dynac was renamed Dymec, and was folded back into HP in These had a simple accumulator -based design, with two accumulator registers and, in the HP models, two index registers. The series was produced for 20 years, in spite of several attempts to replace it, and was a forerunner of the HP and HP series of desktop and business computers. He resumed the chairmanship in and served untilbut Hewlett remained the CEO.
The HP was an advanced stack-based design for a business computing server, later redesigned with RISC technology. The HP series of smart and intelligent terminals introduced forms-based interfaces to ASCII terminals, and also introduced screen labeled function keysnow commonly used on gas pumps and bank ATMs. Although scoffed at in the formative days of computing, HP would eventually surpass even IBM as the world's largest technology vendor, in terms of sales.Stocks: Real-time U.

Less commonly, the focus is on a quantile, or other location parameter of the conditional distribution of the dependent variable given the independent variables. Many techniques for carrying out regression analysis have been developed. Nonparametric statistics are statistics not based on parameterized families of probability distributions.
They include both descriptive and inferential statistics. The typical parameters are the mean, variance, etc. Unlike parametric statistics, nonparametric statistics make no assumptions about the probability distributions of the variables being assessed.
Non-parametric methods are widely used for studying populations that take on a ranked order (such as movie reviews receiving one to four stars). The use of non-parametric methods may be necessary when data have a ranking but no clear numerical interpretation, such as when assessing preferences.
In terms of levels of measurement, non-parametric methods result in "ordinal" data. As non-parametric methods make fewer assumptions, their applicability is much wider than the corresponding parametric methods. In particular, they may be applied in situations where less is known about the application in question. Also, due to the reliance on fewer assumptions, non-parametric methods are more robust.
Another justification for the use of non-parametric methods is simplicity. In certain cases, even when the use of parametric methods is justified, non-parametric methods may be easier to use. Due both to this simplicity and to their greater robustness, non-parametric methods are seen by some statisticians as leaving less room for improper use and misunderstanding.
Mathematical statistics has substantial overlap with the discipline of statistics. Statistical theorists study and improve statistical procedures with mathematics, and statistical research often raises mathematical questions.

Anniversary statistical collection World Statistics Day 2015 BRICS Joint Statistical Publications 39, Miasnitskaya St. Statistics is a form of mathematical analysis that uses quantified models, representations and synopses for a given set of experimental data or real-life studies. Statistics studies methodologies to gather, review, analyze and draw conclusions from data.
Some statistical measures include mean, regression analysis, skewness, kurtosis, variance and analysis of variance. Statistics is a term used to summarize a process that an analyst uses to characterize a data set. If the data set depends on a sample of a larger population, then the analyst can develop interpretations about the population primarily based on the statistical outcomes from the sample.
Statistical analysis involves the process of gathering and evaluating data and then summarizing the data into a mathematical form.
Statistical methods analyze large volumes of data and their properties. Statistics is used in various disciplines such as psychology, business, physical and social sciences, humanities, government and manufacturing.Warren Huart Hi Sean, that is a fantastic reference track.

If you do have an emergency and need to use some money from your fund, build it up again before paying off more debt. Then move to the next highest interest rate card and so on. So if you pay off the balance before that date, your statement will show a zero balance which not only allows you to avoid interest charges and fees on your credit card, but this strategy will also help you improve your credit score.
The idea of budgeting might conjure up feelings of lack or scarcity, but in reality, budgeting is just a simple way of you telling your money where you want it to go. To organize your expenses, you could use a paper budget or an Excel spreadsheet. You could also use an app like Mint to budget your expenses. To this day, many people still use the envelope method to manage their money and keep their spending under control.
Then once that debt is paid off, apply what you were paying toward that debt to the card with the second highest interest rate and so on. This will save you the most money over time. Take a look at your expenses from last month. Did you go out to eat too much. Do you need to rein in entertainment spending. Pay special attention to monthly regular monthly subscription services that can add up big over time. Then, apply these savings to your debt. Take a look around your house.Layoffs begin at Rio Rancho HP Center
