Yesterday, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced the acquisition of behavior analytics start-up Niara. Niara will be folded into Aruba, which the original HP acquired in 2015 for  $2.7B.

After divesting its enterprise business and some other non-core assets during the first half+ of 2016, HPE is clearly back in the hunt for acquisitions as Niara marks the 3rd acquisition announcement in 2017.

Overall, HPE has now made 4 acquisitions since finalizing its separation from the hardware division.
