Why tech’s heavyweights still can’t crush the small fry BusinessWeek Online [News.com: News Around the Web]
An encouraging note about the opportunities for innovation from Business Week. In light of the doomsday predicitions coming from Siebel and Oracle, it’s nice to hear someone see the glass as half full:
Even if smaller and midsize companies face a tighter squeeze and dwindling resources, they believe small, innovative companies will continue to thrive in such markets as security software and wireless networking gear.

That’s a cheaper, more flexible alternative to software from leaders Siebel and SAP. Such pressure keeps the giants on their toes.
