Once upon time, people loved Sungard AS for the amazing and talented people who enjoyed working there. That fact alone was a big (huge) driver of both new and existing business. Along the way, Sungard AS invested (million$) in all the wrong products and services (Managed AWS being the latest) while simultaneously de-invested in the folks who made Sungard AS. It's a classic recipe for disaster. Absolutely poor leadership at the top for years (by design?)...they did a great job of bankrupting the company.
For YEARS the company has had no idea what or who it wants to be ... like I said, absolutely poor leadership.
Colo, Network, Security, Managed Services, Private Cloud, Public Cloud (yes they tried that!), DR, DR in Cloud, Managed Recovery, etc. ... surely no lack of attempts, but no vision, no niche, no wow factor.
