Security for virtualized datacentres

Aflame with vital energy

Regular LogoWatch readers will be aware of the sequence of events which are provoked by a corporate rebranding exercise:
1) You rebrand
2) You go titsup
3) You get taken over
4) The new owners dump your rebranding
5) You wonder why you bothered in the first place

Sema ill-advisedly carried out such a rebranding earlier this year. Shortly afterwards the company was swallowed whole by Schlumberger.

Although Sema's website still carries the outstanding example of logo rebranding on which we reported on 12 March, it seems that new owner Schlumberger is about to turn the fire extinguisher on Sema's 'flaming vital energy.'

Indeed, we are obliged to Reg reader Jennifer for forwarding us this image:

Consider yourself Schlumbergered


Well, that says it all. Sic transit gloria mundi.
