VMware acquires SlideRocket

With another move likely to add gasoline on the fire of the recent Provider or Enabler discussion VMware announced the acquisition of SlideRocket, a SaaS-based business presentation provider.

SlideRocket is a tightly focused company, delivering presentation solutions with a modern and cloud-oriented approach, directly aimed at business but with a range of solutions also covering personal or SMB usage.

it is very interesting to note how this last move fits in the global VMware’s strategy and its renewed focus on end users – even more stressed by the fact that CTO Steve Herrod wrote a lenghty piece himself on the “Post PC era”. The terms of the acquisition, however, were not disclosed.
