My personal view is that Intel is entering into embedded software and services market to grow revenue and expand markets. They are following IBM's strategy and business model in managing hardware, software, and services. Embedded software and services market is huge but too fragmented and is still envolving. Eventually it will be like the IT industry that a few standards, platforms, and frameworks dominate the market. And the scale of economy can lower the cost of ownership, reduce time to market, and accelerate ROI. Remember, IBM has tried to get into the embedded market few years ago and looked hard at wind River as a possible acquisition. Later it scrapped the entire business plan. To validate this point, we should see that this is just the beginning of a series of acquisitions to establish a solid software and services business. Perhaps a software development tool company will be the next target.
