For many years, there has been a move toward "one throat to choke" when it comes to implementations - both hardware and software. Software companies have been either building their implementation teams or tightly integrating with a systems integration partner. Now the telecom network hardware vendors are joining the game.
Michelle Donegon details a report from Caroline Chappell about how the hardware vendors have been making moves to take the service activities ( and associated revenue ) back from the systems integrators. The hardware vendors, via Chappell, claim that this move will enable service delivery.
I think this is more about improving their revenue numbers for Wall Street. :)
