HP would do well to position itself for the post-relational world by acquiring expertise for a next-generation database. 10gen has experience in developing, installing, and supporting the open source database MongoDB, which would position HP well as both a database software provider and as a cloud-based database services provider. HP desperately needs an enterprise database solution. Expect a move in 2011.
