Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Computacenter may be about to make a bid for GE Capital IT Solutions (GECITS), according to Richard Holway's financial IT Web site. "The rumours continue to grow concerning a possible bid by Computacenter for GE Capital IT Solutions (GECITS)," the site said today. "GECITS had admitted it was considering a merger with another European reseller and the field has been narrowed down considerably with last week's SCH acquisition of Buhrmann," it added. More channel gossip revolves around Ideal Hardware. Sources claim Ingram Micro big cheeses have been spotted once again in the offices of the rival distributor, fuelling rumours of a buy-out of the InterX arm. Meanwhile, shares in InterX continue to soar while the market waits for it to split from Ideal. The share price today stands at £30.25, up 12 times on its £2.50 value before the company announced its Internet intentions. ® Related stories Ingram wins GE Cap supply contract GE Cap sheds 200 jobs at ITS Channel Flannel Extra
