Google Could Learn a Thing or Two from EMC

Article Source Enterprise Storage Forum

One of the interesting (though increasingly tedious) parts about being a long-term technology analyst is seeing the same mistakes made over and over again. A young upstart company that is doing very well looks at a more mature firm and figures they can do it better — without first understanding what it is that made the older firm successful.

In the current case it is Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), which I'm increasingly seeing as a company that has set its mind on spectacular failure. The area in question: EMC (NYSE: EMC) and the concept of cloud computing, and whether it should be public or private. The irony is that Google is probably the most private company in technology at the moment — the firm once threatened to blacklist CNET for using Google's own search engine to collect information on its CEO.
