I’m sitting down with the top execs (including CEO Bill Watkins)in San Francisco talking social media and storage. You can’te believe the new stuff coming out from Seagate over the next few months. Wait til CES. I was speaking with their new executive Jim Druckery. Jim is heading up their consumer business. Jim used to head up the Gibson audio division. He was telling me of a ton of new consumer announcements for CES. Stay tuned. Jim also was on PodTech’s Marketing Voices show with Jennifer Jones.
Four years ago Seagate had no revenue growth and over the past three years double revenue growth from 6b to 12b. Wow. Seagate is riding the user generated content and web 2.0 wave.
Content explosion helps Seagate. Nice. I wonder if PodTech can some of those data center drives.
Storage in the cloud is a big deal for Bill Watkins. The big issue is pulling that content from the cloud into a multitude of devices.
