Apple denys enterprise move, makes compelling case

updated 12:15 pm EST, Sat January 24, 2004

Apple in enterprise

Infoworld notes that Apple is officially , but yet is releasing compelling Internet product line (G5 Xserve, Xserve RAID) and current hiring choices suggest otherwise: "here are a couple of other obstacles Apple faces in selling into larger markets. For one, enterprise customers don't like to buy version-one products. They need to be tested by time....Apple also needs to convince the enterprise that its products exist in an ecosystem. The server in itself has less value if the complementary products and applications aren't ported to go with them."

    apple does not have any "first version" server products...

    all are revamps, some on their third version.

    "denys"?

    Denny's is a restaurant. 'Denys' is not a word. I think you're groping for "denies".

    Thanks.

    MacNN? Literate?

    "Denys"? "Stragtegic"? "But yet"? You're coming off looking like illiterates, not a legitimate news outlet. Hire a proofreader, for God's sake.

    Legitimate?

    ou're coming off looking like illiterates, not a legitimate news outlet.

    You mean you actually consider MacNN (or really any web-site) as a legitimate news outlet? You mean if they had a grammar checker, you'd value what they say more?

    I guess if you were interviewing someone for a job, you'd discount anyone not wearing a suit, even if the job doesn't require one...

    MacWorld Boston Please!

    Even if Apple does not like Boston they should not ignore the vast number of Mac customers on the East coast. MacWorld Boston is a great low cost venue to showcase Panther, Xserve and XRAID to education, publishing, biotech and video customers. If Apple is not there it will send a negative message to the industry that the Macintosh market is weak and getting even smaller. Customers will wonder if Apple is turning into an entertainment only company and bailing out of the computer industry. Apple has great products for the enterprise and it would be very sad for the Mac community if they are not showcased to the right people at an East coast show. IT departments (Mac and PC) are taking a hard look at the Xserve solution right now and Apple would be foolish not to market the product at any chance they get. If Donald Trump was CEO of Apple he would not ignore Boston. =)

    re: suit

    not that it's on topic, but...

    "I guess if you were interviewing someone for a job, you'd discount anyone not wearing a suit, even if the job doesn't require one."

    if given the choice, and the qualifications are the same, i will ALWAYS choose the person who presents him- or herself professionally during an interview and acts like they want the job and care about their presence on the job... the position may not require a suit, per se, but you had better look like you bothered to shower before you got here.

    re: suit

    "if given the choice, and the qualifications are the same, i will ALWAYS choose the person who presents him- or herself professionally during an interview and acts like they want the job and care about their presence on the job... the position may not require a suit, per se, but you had better look like you bothered to shower before you got here."

    That's a cop-out and you know it. It certainly makes your decision easier to just hire whoever looks the best or has the 100% cotton content paper resume or sends a thank you note after the interview, but all of those things can be done by anyone, require no special talent, and aren't exactly secrets. Any book, article, or web site with advice on job interviews tells you to do these things, and most people do; so it's not really anything special. And, the only reason people *actually* do them is not because they "want the job more" or "care more about this job" or whatever; it's because people like YOU make your hiring decisions easier by using such criteria. When are two candidates' qualifications really so close that it comes down to how they're dressed? I'd be more worried about personality than how much money they spent on their clothing for one interview.
