Paul Maritz takes his Pi to EMC

badarrow Barbara Darrow Profile: badarrow

EMC is buying Pi Corp., and Pi’s founder, Paul Maritz, will now head EMC’s software-as-a-service effort. The news was reported by The New York Times and others.

And it is extremely interesting news. Maritz was a well-regarded top Microsoft exec for 14 years before taking his act on the road.

In its earlier “about” statement on the company Web site , Pi said its “next generation software environment” was expected to be available in both “free (open source) and licensed forms.” That open source verbiage is now only viewable in a cache. Hmmm.

Note: Pi ‘s environment was going to help “users create, repurpose, store, share and access personal information in novel ways.” (Personal Information = PI. )
