Software Vendors Compare With Others

I seem to be having a number of conversations with software vendors in the past six months. Sometimes, we’ll get to the part of the conversation where the software vendor wonders why their product isn’t selling as well as someone else’s.



I’m Watching Too Many Demos: Some Comments
