Vive la Difference

In England again and guess what? It hasn’t stopped being sunny and warm since I arrived. London in the sunshine is amazing.

I’m sure everyone knows about the HP acquisition of Opsware by now – huge price. Interesting quote from the head of HP Software the other day…

?There are companies who have pieces of the puzzle.We believe we are the leading and arguably the only company who has assembled all the necessary pieces. We want to link different pieces of puzzle to provide a coordinated holistic view. This separates us from dozens of other competitors cobbling together parts.?

As the French would say, Vive la Difference (special prize to anyone that can tell me the difference between “assembling the pieces from multiple acquisitions and linking them together” and “cobbling together parts”).
