The 27th of January witnessed a couple of high profile IT events – Apple launching the iPad and Oracle outlining its strategy for Sun. Though the events addressed completely different markets (Apple bringing technology to the common man, whereas Oracle is building technology focused on enterprises), there was a common thread across the two.
Software – Hardware Integration.
Executives of both companies touted their unique prowess to engineer hardware – software integration for their customer’s benefit. Though this is not a new concept (another example is IBM’s concept of Appliances), we are getting to hear more of this in the market place.
