Layoffs at EMC

This doesn't sound good for Captiva employees. I will say that I thought Captiva handled the Documentum acquisition pretty well and didn't cut too much there. This article also seems to indicate that the company wants to continue to put more focus on software- and after paying $275 million for Captiva, you wouldn't expect them to gut it too bad.

Hello Ralf,
Why do you relate this with Captiva ("This doesn't sound good for Captiva employees.")? EMC is a big company.

They are laying off 1,000 people, which is like 1/25th or 4% of the EMC workforce. Plus, the stuff about redundancies I would think would make me a bit nervous.
