Congratulation to Tom Hogan, until recently the CEO of Vignette, who yesterday it was announced took a position with software giant HP. Vignette was one of those companies, whice I was at BroadVision, that we loved to hate. When Vignette absorbed Epicentric, and Vignette moved back into the ranks of solvency, you knew they would stick around a bit longer. I would have taken any bet that Tom would have outlasted Pehong Chen, CEO of BroadVision, but Pehong has “won” that battle. Wow. I’m sure that Tom will be able to breathe some life into HP’s software engine.
Tom, if you decide that you’d like to offer some pre-defined SharePoint sites on your HP boxes, for different scenarios or industries, give me a call! 🙂
