All Wet Aberdeen Misses Virtualization Boat Completely
Research house Aberdeen Group just released its list of the "Top
100 Most Influential Technology Vendors for 2008
I scrolled through the list, nodding my head as I read that Microsoft was No.
1 and IBM, Cisco and HP all made the top 10. I was surprised, though, that Oracle
was No. 2, two full places ahead of IBM. Huh? And Google not in the top 10?
Hey, I think Google is overrated, but come on!
After reading all 100 names, something wasn't right. There was no VMware. So
I read the list again. Still couldn't find it. I went through it two more times.
Still, it was nowhere to be found. Servigistics (they do service management)
is on the list, but not VMware?
Maybe I'll send the folks at Aberdeen a big box of napkins to wipe all the
egg off their faces.
