Fired by SAP, Hired by HP

Leo Apotheker was CEO of SAP, but was sacked this year because he didn't move SAP software to the cloud fast enough. HP has no such concerns and just tapped Apotheker as its new CEO, replacing the recently defrocked Mark Hurd, who just landed a cushy job at Oracle (guess at this level it doesn't really hurt to get fired!).

Speaking of Oracle, HP also hired former Oracle president Ray Lane as "non-executive chairman." I'm not sure what that means, but I'm sure it pays better than any of our jobs!
