I was trawling through the Winweb site when it suddenly struck me – why am I going to Office 2.0? Stefan’s done it already, hasn’t he? Or am I kidding myself? Take a look at the checklist and then compare with this chart (reproduced below)
OK – so I’m bending the rules a bit because I’m more concerned about doing business than having all of Ismael’s application types. Maybe some of those will come later. And some can be added into or are part of the applications Winweb already uses. Some might argue it’s a kludge. I’d argue that having all that Winweb offers, delivered portal style makes huge sense.
What makes Winweb different is its Live option. There is no way that a start up or early stage business can find that anywhere else. That’s because Stefan knows this isn’t just for geeks. He talks a lot about facilitating business survival. I see it as a whole lot more. But then I’m biased. I know it.
Just as Ismael’s vision is evolving, so is Stefan’s. I hope the conference deals with some of the business realities at both the SME and enterprise levels. The schedule looks very promising. And less than 25 places left.
