Microsoft Channel Partner site looks at Foundations

Here's an article about the SMB Market that was published on 'Redmond Channel Partner Online'. Despite their tag line of 'Driving Success in the Microsoft Partner Community' and their self-proclaimed mission to provide a "... focus on the strategic and practical needs of Microsoft IT professionals" I found the article to be well-balanced and surprisingly devoid of adjectives.

The article compares the SMB offerings of Cisco, Oracle, HP, Dell, IBM, SAP and Microsoft. It only gives a paragraph or three to each vendor but it's a good snapshot of what the different players are doing. I'd already 'been-there-done-that' with what they had to say about the IBM and Microsoft products, but I did learn a thing or two about the plans of the other vendors.

I've got the site bookmarked to see what they say about Foundations in future issues.
