I have not heard any internal announcements about the available date of the Standard Edition of MS CMS (Content Management Server) 2002, and I do not think that pricing has been fixed yet, but here is a Computerworld story about the new offering.
Who ever heard of such a thing? Is Netcraft reading it’s results table backwards???
Check out a recent Netcraft report showing that 8,000 web sites have recently switched from being hosted on Linux to being hosted on Windows 2003.
Choices are good. There is now a workflow model and samples available for MS CMS 2002. There are also good partner solutions – (the solutions that I’m familiar with include those from TeamPlate and Sourcedode Technologies)… Life will change for MS CMS users now, with a flexible and powerful workflow model now available…
Nice job, Scott Fynn. It was worth getting up early for.
Yesterday was Day One of the Annual MS Global Briefing – targeted towards Field Sales and Consulting personnel. It was my first time to attend a MGB, and I was impressed. The only time that I had seen Steve Ballmer dance before was in the infamous “monkeyboy” clip of a few years ago. He did not disappoint.
MS will not disappoint with the continued growth in different markets. Keep your eyes open.
Scoble describes why employee blogging is a big deal at Microsoft. I’m still not sure what to do with mine, but I think it is important that this issue is respected.
I’ve been asked by a couple of people to describe my job function at Microsoft.
I’m an E-Business Product Technology Specialist for Microsoft, in the Sales group, primarily involved in Technical Pre-Sales opportunities. I specialize in the E-Business Server products, MS Content Management Server, MS Commerce Server, and MS Biztalk Server. I visit customers with Account Managers, and on my own, answering technical questions about the products, helping with product evaluations, etc.
It’s a great gig, and I’m enjoying it. Prior to this place, I worked in the same function for BroadVision, an E-Commerce software solution. Once BroadVision needed to shut down its Seattle operations, I pretty much needed to find work, and Microsoft was local and needed some help. I’ve been here almost a year now, and am enjoying it very much.
