That software deal was likely a condition of ending the outsourcing contracts. It seems unlikely that GM would cut most of their ties with HP from an outsourcing perspective and, coincidentally, decide to buy a ton of HP software on the same day. I imagine that GM agreed to buy that software in order to get out of early termination fees on services contracts and to not have HP fight them in the transition of 3,000 employees to GM's in-house staff.

(IMHO) HP has an extremely extensive record of outsourcing off-shore. Let's hope that these functions remain on-shore and expand here.
