IT Conversations: Peter O'Kelly - Microsoft as a Superplatform Contender ""Microsoft in the enterprise" has, for many enterprise IT strategists, been considered an oxymoron since Microsoft first set its sights on the data center market with the initial release of Windows NT in mid-1993. Confusion about the meaning and significance of Microsoft's .NET strategy, unveiled during mid-2000, created additional uncertainty about Microsoft's enterprise potential. This session includes an assessment of Microsoft's strategy and status as an enterprise superplatform contender, including projections of Microsoft's near-term trajectory as it finalizes key initiatives including new model-driven tools, Indigo, Avalon, and Windows Longhorn."
