OK, the growing trend for companies is produce a product which
interoperates with other products that other companies are manufacturing at
some point in time either they strategically align together or combine
themselves together to make one entity instead of two.. The growing trend
in the last few months is for policy type products and intrusion type test
companies to merge with firewall software and/hardware companies. This
takes care of the product side of things.


Over the summer months and early fall, we saw the big auditing type
companies combine their work force together to enhance their consulting
type offerings and combine their customer base.

The next logical step is to combine product companies with the auditing
type companies..

The final step after that is to combine the auditing companies and the long
distance carrier companies together.. combining all product, all people and
telecommunication together.
