This IDC Perspective discusses DDN's new strategy and acquisitions and will serve as a detailed primer for those wanting to familiarize themselves with the vendor's capabilities and prospects for future growth. In the past several years, traditional MPC vendor DDN has acquired three companies, added an enterprise business unit, and quadrupled its total available market. Given emerging market trends, it is clear why DDN chose these particular acquisition targets. The company now needs to consolidate its gains so that it can move forward with optimum customer and sales momentum."Over the past two years, DDN has embarked on a bold new strategy that has expanded the company's market purview and prospects," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group at IDC. "The technologies in its portfolio map well to emerging market requirements for digitally transforming companies, but to get the most out of its investments DDN will need to execute well in molding its assets into a well-integrated offering that spans both technical and commercial computing requirements."
