We think the statements below illustrate events and trends of 2006 better than thousands of words of reporting. (Well, maybe. Sometimes.)
Here's our Top 10 list, in order of impact:
- No. 10: "You can't hide that ball anymore." -- Bob Brennan, COO of Iron Mountain, in reference to the compliance challenges users face.
Well said, Bob. And with the improvements at Iron Mountain, folk won't be able to claim Iron Mountain lost, sold, or burned that dang ball, either.
- No. 9: "We just spent $4.1 billion to acquire StorageTek. It doesn't make sense for us to sell it off." -- David Yen, EVP Storage, Sun Microsystems.
