US Compaq analyst Terry Shannon has obtained a copy of an internal email that CEO Mike Capellas and senior VP Enrico Pesatori sent to all employees recently. The full text of the email, outlining Q's OpenVMS strategy, is obtainable at Shannon's Web site. According to the email -- dated 12 August -- Compaq wants to move existing OpenVMS customers to other of its own platforms. That suggests that Compaq is finding that people are moving to competitors's platforms. The reason Q wants to keep its OpenVMS customers is because, according to the execs, it is a high margin, high profitable business for the firm. Capellas and Pesatori said Compaq will continue to invest in OpenVMS, and will also provide "an easy" migration path to Q Tru64 and Windows NT. ®
