All change – consolidation in the world of IT
At this stage no-one is giving out any specifics, which is understandable as neither deal has been finalised and signed off. The coming weeks will be interesting as we get more details from the companies involved.
One thing is certain – with the consolidation of such major players in the IT and HPC business, the industry itself is clearly in the middle of a major shake-up.
When the dust finally settles, will we be seeing business as usual with a smaller number of larger players? Or will the companies involved take the opportunity to deliver some real innovation in the middle of this economic slump?
