Four Horsemen Of The New Economy

from the yeah,-whatever dept

Business Week is claiming that Sun, EMC, Oracle, and Cisco represent the four horsemen of the new economy, in that everyone in the new economy has to buy products from all four. The point being that their performance is an indicator of how the new economy, as a whole, is doing. While I do agree on Oracle and Cisco (for now), I’m not so sure about the other two. Yes, a lot of people do use them, but I’ve certainly seen plenty of “new economy” companies that don’t use Sun at all. I would definitely include Intel and Microsoft in the list (even if – as the article says – they were the leaders in the 80s). In the past week alone, Intel has shown its ability to influence the rest of the tech market.
