Federation Companies Will Lock Together, But Won't Lock You In
Tucci said EMC's Federation companies, EMC, VMware, VCE, RSA and Pivotal, will fit very closely together so that customers can be offered a full suite of products from a single vendor. He said that ideally, the federation will offer choice and will be flexible. "This is how we set up federation: Build a digital agenda, go to cloud, go mobile and protect yourself. These things snap together like building blocks, like Legos. (Customers) get the speed and agility of a smaller company within a bigger company. To do this is not for the faint of heart, but the philosophy is choice, not to lock you in."
