According to a number of reports, EMC has been getting criticism from investors and Wall Street regarding the whole RSA buy.
EMC's Rob Sadowski explains their reasoning for purchasing RSA by describing the storage market moving towards "holisitic" information management which is accomplished by Identity Management technologies. So instead of writing their own identity tools, why not buy and beat competitors to it?
Rob's analysis holds some truth. Think about Sun's integration of their storage and identity products earlier this year.
So does this mean we will see more storage and identity companies forging relationships?
