ILM another bandwagon...
ILM was another bandwagon but an older one. One I thought had long died. Very few companies have come close to ILM simply because its so encompassing. When a product is a point solution you can pretty much guaranty that its nothing like ILM. Some products that really do move data to different places, manage it differently are getting close. Its not remotely what HP is offering now.
Think the term should die just to be on the safe side.
Oh and other terms that should die include:
- "Big Data" (this I fear will be 2011 buzzword)
@Sam... I think I may have to disagree with the "tocal cost of ownership" comment. TCO helps to put the price of things into perspective. My car was relatively cheap new and kicks a lot of horsepower and is kind of fun. However it has terrible TCO; it cost a lot insure, service, tax and drinks petrol. Think same goes for a lot of IT solutions. Now in fairness I knew what all those things were before I bought it and I knew I could afford it, but the point is if you were buying a car with a budget, you will check the cost of servicing, tax, fuel, insurance, etc. Problem with a lot of TCO stuff from IT people I grant you is that its done by marketing people and there isnt any actually math behind the numbers.
