Hewlett Packard Enterprise is off to a good start after Hewlett-Packard split into two separate companies, CEO Meg Whitman said Wednesday, one day after HP's quarterly earnings fell short of expectations.
Whitman reiterated the company's plan to generate growth in its enterprise group next year and stabilize revenues in enterprise services with "quite significant" margin expansion.
"I think what the analysts saw is we are delivering on that plan. It was just negative 2 percent growth in constant currency, which is not what we aspire to, but that's been a business that's been in decline for a number of years," she told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street."
She noted that operating profit of 8.2 percent was the highest the company has recorded in four years.
"I think the turnaround is working in enterprise services, and the investors are starting to see that," she said.
