The IT world has gone acquisition bonkers. Dell is paying as much for EMC as any football club would do to secure the combined services of Messi and Ronaldo. Well almost...

Meantime, a couple of companies I keep tabs on have also been in acquisition...

Who Said Virtualisation Was Supposed To Simplify Things…

So, we went from hardware to software, and then software to virtual, the idea being not only that everything is more efficient, but also easier to scale and manage. Kind of VLANs part two?

Been researching an article for CW's very own Cliff Saran while, by chance, also speaking with a number of IT investors - the research being on networking innovations; oh and, by another chance, also judging an awards event, networking category and also visited a Cambridge Wireless innovations...

Just wanted to give everyone with a good tech idea up their bit of T-shirt that covers the upper arm - given that it is summer -) a heads up about a new IT ideas competition called Tech Trailblazers - www.techtrailblazers.com - organised by my (and many others) old PR mate, Rose Ross. Well,...

IT is often accused, and rightly so, of being too "dry".

Remember the days when IBM tried to rule the world?

Happy 2009 – Consolidate Through Acquisitions

So, with all the news of budgets being slashed and people being made redundant in their droves (a kind of ancient farming vehicle) is it appropriate to wish you all a belated happy new year?

If the IT vendor world is anything to go by, then yes. While the likes of Sun, Dell and others...
