Mike says: "I write one thing about SIM and every friggin' vendor that I've never heard of has to reach out to me and tell me how great they are."
He continues: "1st generation SIM [you know who you are...] is pretty much dead, and those that want to survive need to either focus on log management or more real-time network detection (which means they need to bring in NBA data)"
And then closes with: "But of course, lots of folks were lining up to get briefing slots to tell me how great they are. Without even hearing their pitch, it's a load of crap."
Sorry for that much quoting, but there is just no better way to say it - some companies in this segment have certainly overstayed the market's welcome...
