"This transformation towards a vertically integrated systems solution provider is a culmination of internal developments (advanced controllers, firmware, ECC in-order to gain ecosystem support), prudent acquisitions (Pliant, FlashSoft, Schooner) & investments (WHIPTAIL) which will become increasingly material to SanDisk’s revenue contributions through share gains in mobile and storage segments," Freedman said. "The pace of SanDisk in-roads in SSDs likely proves to be disruptive to traditional storage solutions providers. The transformation to a solutions company, driven by a broader Embedded and SSD solutions portfolio, should result in a stronger gross margin profile and increased stability in earnings power."
