Interesting EMC/X-Hive perspectives from X-Hive competitor Mark Logic's CEO Dave Kellogg. Excerpt:
My strategic concern with X-Hive has always been focus. While the offerings are layered on each other, the reality is you have a 25-person company in the Netherlands conducting war on three fronts. All three categories in which the company competes are highly competitive, and X-Hive has approximately 8 people working per category. That strikes me as way below critical mass.
