The WISE Choice

Back to Forum: Coffeehouse

    Hey guys, yesterday I had a presentation to do for a company that was looking to upgrade their technology, they were running on Windows NT Server 4, Windows NT 4 WS, Windows 95, OS/2 .  Red Hat had already done theirs and were sitting there talking about LAMP.  So when I prepared mine I came up with the WISE choice

    W = Windows Server 2003
    I = IIS
    S = SQL Server 2000
    E = Exchange

    I think we got it but I find out for certain next week.  I touted .NET and someof the other initiatives and even did a presentation of Longhorn so they could see what was coming up.  It was a good meeting and I feel very positive.  There have ben some that I know I lost out to Novell or Red Hat just by the way people were acting but this one I nailed it.

    Anyway, a little cutesy marketing tool someone else could use.

    WISE has a long history at Microsoft; at one time it stood for "Windows Interface Source Environment", although I don't think you'll find that on a .microsoft.com website anymore.  See http://hyper.sunjapan.com.cn/~hz/win32/wise.htm

    WISE, I like the sound of that. It probably won't be used. It is your intellectual property now.. Smiley

    But if you have not TM or C yet they could use it for free.

    Just an idea...
