Recession's over, according to Tom

Recession’s over, according to Tom Siebel ::: Even though my company competes with Siebel on occasion, I have to admit I admire the company and the way Siebel has started and run it. This is a great article in Forbes (you’ll need to register; don’t worry, it’s free) that talks about how Siebel saw the recession coming early (thanks of course to his own software), adjusted accordingly, and now sees the rebound before anyone else does.

I’m all for the good news, but doesn’t this sound a little like Tom’s old boss claiming he saved $1b with his own software? (Nothing wrong with taking a page from the old mentor’s playbook, right?)
