It had always been found that being partners in the business have often yielded more profits than just being as competitors. The HP and Microsoft who had taken the resolution and had entered into an agreement to take over the manufacturing of four new products of the HP, which would be jointly produced, managed, distributed and marketed by both of the companies, have applied the policy of partnership recently. The main reason is to cut their costs and improve the management efficiency, thus increasing the profits.

In most of the cases, it has been found that being competitors of one another in the market has often led to lowering of the prices and the control over the market. However, partnerships and cartels have led to an increase in the over all profit for most of the producers and also the decrease in cost. The cost can often be decreased by applying the policy of the division of labor and along with that enforcing the discipline of specialization. Effective resource management is also made possible by the help of partnerships and cartels.
Microsoft and HP who have entered into an open contract, which is better known as the Frontline partnership, are following the same policy. The strategy has been implemented in order to increase the specialization and technical known how of both the companies. Often in most of the cases it as being observed that there were some weak points in the process of production for one of the company, which was the strong point of the other, and the same happened for the other company. Thus, as long as they were not in partnership it was perhaps impossible to manage the resource wastage effectively and thus cut short the cost.
With the opening of the partnership terms between the two corporate giants, the shortcomings were bridged and the loopholes in the production process were taken care of. The labor management was improved, enforcing labor division for both companies, which enabled in faster and quality production. Along with that, the companies also incorporated the production specialization strategy which enabled both of the companies to specialize in the production of certain components which were needed for the full product to get manufactured and this was the basic strategy of resource savings. The company, which was specialized in producing certain components of the main product, often found it profitable to produce it in bulk rather than producing all the components of the product and hence the cost got decreased and thus the profit increased in no time.
The frontline partnership was made to jointly produce four of the products, which are the HP Enterprise Data Warehouse Appliance, the HP Business Decision Appliance, HP Business Data Warehouse Appliance, and the HP E5000 Messaging System.
The two companies made all of them available and one can find more information on these items mentioned above by searching them over the net.
