Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce has decided to stick to what it knows best — banking — and leave computer support to the experts at Hewlett-Packard (Canada) Co. Last November, HP Canada bought CIBC’s 51 percent interest in Intria — HP, a joint venture between the two companies. Formed in 1998, the partnership provides information technology services to several large companies in Canada, including CIBC, General Motors Corp., and Halliburton Co. The deal’s financial details were not disclosed. But as part of the new agreement, HP Canada will provide IT services to CIBC, including maintenance of desktop computers, software, and servers, for seven years. The outsourcing arrangement is valued at $4.6 billion. A wholly owned subsidiary of Palo Alto — based Hewlett-Packard Company, HP Canada employs more than 6,900 people. CIBC, a financial services holding company with more than 8 million personal and business customers, hopes that the deal will allow it to focus exclusively on banking.
