David DeWalt is using the company EMC as example of how the software business is changing in response to challenges like global outsourcing, multi-tenancy, and service appliances. He shows how a hugely profitable company like EMC no longer does much R&D but now focuses on acquisition and development, absorbing approximately two companies every quarter. DeWalt goes on to describe how EMC has developed a strategy of getting newly aquired products and companies up and running from the start.
