[EN] Everyone Wants To Be The IBM Of Old – Network Computing

Curiously, IBM has made the transition from being IBM to being a services company that has good hardware for a company’s core needs.  Rather than build their own, they OEM mid-range storage from NetApp and LSI. More significantly, they sold their networking division–home of Token Ring–to Cisco, their PC group to Lenovo and disk manufacturing to Hitachi over the past few decades.

Interesting posting on how Oracle and others try to become the old IBM, while IBM tries to become more and more a Software and Services Company with Hardware offerings for the backend.
