Sounds like ....
IBMs business model since about 1975.
IBM was (probaly still is) unique among the big computer manufacturers in that it has always concentrated on the "B" business bit of its name rather than the "M" machines bit.
From the first airline reservation system ( actualy the first TP monitor and the dawn of the "transaction") to the parts list for the Appolo program ( the first real database and the second TP monitor) IBM have always concentrated on complete solutions for a problem thier customers had, rather than create gee whiz technoligy and go off in search of problems.
The downside to this was they are rather c**p at consumer small buisness comodity stuff.
HP may look like the largest tech company but they now do little more than Dell -- stick procesors made by someone else into a box that runs software written by someone else.
