Enterprise IT is from Venus; software vendors are from Mars

To quote Jonathan Feldman of InformationWeek: “Enterprise IT is from Venus; software vendors are from Mars.” This statement should be funny, but unfortunately it’s all to true to be laughable. Jonathan recently wrote a great piece about how licensing changes happen without notice and often without making much sense. Microsoft and VMWare are the vendors in particular called out in this instance, both with bad track records for making confusing and frequent changes to their licensing. He makes some interesting and valid points about licensing and how to strategize to avoid complications. Check out the piece here: http://www.informationweek.com/news/global-cio/roi/231002538?pgno=1
