IBM in Post-Sun Rebound Acquisition

acquisitionsLooks like IBM found another use for some of the $6.5 billion it had considered using to acquire Sun (JAVA). This morning the company said it is acquiring Exeros, a data relationship discovery company that it plans to roll into into its business analytics unit. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Exeros’s technology is apparently very, very good at finding connections between data across multiple databases and IBM feels it will do much for the business intelligence efforts that it last bolstered with the $4.9 billion acquisition of Cognos. Said Lise Neely, product marketing manager for IBM’s enterprise management information tools portfolio, “IBM has data discovery features; the Exeros acquisition will improve it.”

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
