Acquisition in IT world is ongoing and Google/Oracle/IBM are on top

(Updated in Aug 2013: Looks Acquisition has been slow down in 2012-13)
Do you know acquisition market of small and medium IT companies become more interesting in these years. It seems, it is going to become a new way in business (If it is not already a business )!Therefore, which reasons are making small companies interesting for a big IT companies? Can we say, they are: Their market's threats ? Increasing share price? Going to new filed and market? Removing potential competitors?
Based on a simple counting , top companies in acquisition in 2012 are Google and Oracle and in 2011 is is Google.
Even sometimes it is not easy to count and sum values of these acquisitions,but below are the numbers of big IT companies acquisitions in (2013,2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008)[The most expensive acquire$):
It is clear, 2008 business crisis and new technologies were  main triggers of these acquisitions.  Meanwhile, next year should be more interesting, because of Euro crisis, China and USA companies may buy out some Europe companies (I think I will put Lenovo in the next year list!) which shows Acquisition in IT world still is on going.
