OFF THE CUFF: IBM’s Steve Mills On The Competition
There is nothing special about what they have done technically. They aren’t delivering pre-integrated. Time-to-value is no better than them delivering piece parts!
They have done a nice job of packaging, but haven’t delivered all the automation, nor is it adaptable to broad number of configurations. But you have to give credit to Cisco and EMC for focusing on the customer.
