Drinking the CCI Kool-Aid

Unless you've been away from the planet, you know that Hewlett-Packard 
and its key 
competitors have been loudly banging the "consolidation" drum. So while 
everyone is 
talking about storage and server consolidation, we must address the 
elephant in the 
living room: all those far-flung and conspicuously unconsolidated 
personal computers. 

The good news for HP is that the company offers the best solution to 
the enormous 
problem of unconsolidated PCs. Called the Consolidated Client 
Infrastructure (CCI), 
the new offering is probably the most groundbreaking product to come 
out of HP in 
the past year. 

The potentially bad news is that it's not clear that HP understands 
what a strategically 
valuable concept CCI is.
