Big changes at Siemens and Alcatel-Lucent

As reported over on NoJitter.com, Siemens  has entered into a deal with Gores Group (owner of Enterasys and contact-center systems vendor SER Solutions) to form a joint venture.  Gores will take 51% of Siemens Enterprise Networks, with Siemens retaining 49%.  In addition, both the chairman and CEO of Alcatel-Lucent have resigned.

This represents a major shake-up of leading UC providers (especially in international markets, but should serve to finally stabilize Siemens for the long run).
