Hitachi and Hardware II

After my last post I think I should have been a little more specific. Whist I'm aware HDS is owned by Hitachi, I pointed out that HDS is effectively a reseller for their hardware. In my experience, HDS take the hardware as Hitachi deliver/design it. I've not seen a huge feedback loop where hardware futures are developed with HDS (although HDS do seem to feed back a lot of software requirements).

My point was, HDS don't purchase companies as they are just Hitachi's reseller and Hitachi don't purchase at all. Either way, whether Hitachi or HDS, the company needs an obvious strategy.
