Avaya Layoffs this Month?

First there were rumors of Cisco layoffs, and now we’re hearing that Avaya, purveyor of VoIP systems for enterprise customers, might be shedding staff, or about to announce cuts, just before the festive season. Ho, bloody ho!If true, these reports would indicate that enterprise buyers, particularly in the financial-services and retail markets, are slashing IT budgets and sharing their pain with vendors of IT products and services. These reports, if confirmed, also could be portents of revenue and earnings shortfalls this quarter and next for a number of technology bellwethers.

  2. Yes, thanks for catching that one. I need to add to my staff of copy editors. ;-)
