Microsoft to Mac enterprise bloggers: How much to sell out Apple?

,----[ Quote ]
| One of our customers has asked us write up a technical marketing case for
| Windows Vista over Mac OSX in the enterprise. I contacting you to see
| if you know anyone who would be interested and capable of writing this
| based on background materials we have.
|
| The candidate should have a good understanding of client systems in the
| enterprise and the technologies behind issues that are important in the
| enterprise (deployment, manageability, work group and policy management,
| security, suitability of developer platforms for line of business
| applications, tech support, licensing, TCO).
|
| We have some background materials that include a 75 page technical
| document called pple in the Enterpriseand other summaries of
| technical points, but it all needs to be put together to make the case.
|
| It not too hard to figure out who the customer is here. The price to sell
| out the Mac in the enterprise is $15,000. But my guess is that this fee may
| be negotiable upwards depending on the brand of the author in question.
|
| Can it be that the Mac and the iPhone are gaining enough traction in the
| enterprise to start ringing alarm bells in Redmond? It appears so.

Microsoft really loves Bloggers !!!

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft regularly flies customers and industry experts to its
| campus in Washington to listen to the feedback given by those
| people.The company invites dozens of key customers and partners
| to the event,where they spend brainstorming as a group.But as of
| late, Microsoft has changed it's strategy and the company is
| making extensive use of blogs to get direct customer feedback.
|
| Within a year,more than 1000 Microsoft employee blogs featured
| developers and product managers talking directly to customers every
| day, instead of once a year.Microsoft employees read dozens of
| blogs every day to see how customers react to Microsoft products
| and services. In fact,Microsoft employees have taken a bigger leap
| and even contribute to other's blogs in the expanding space of
| Blogosphere.
