Tip of the Cap to Tucci
One thing that stands out in the job Joe Tucci has done at EMC is how creative he is with organizational structure. Now the firms are showcasing that they not only can create something unique, they can shift to a more traditional model when it makes more sense to do so. There is no religion here, the form that fits the problems is always the better path but seeing a company make this shift timely, rather than when they have no other choice, is almost unheard of.
VCE demonstrated how an amazing joint venture could be created and that this structure does have a defied "use by" date. Both are great lessons, expect to see a VCE solution behind more public cloud vendors or in the mid-market very shortly.
