We think those lessons and takeaways are valuable in two big ways: First, other customers can learn about new ways to use certain tools or functionality that they might not be aware of. And second, we use those takeaways as feedback to help us improve our products to better suit our customers' needs.
The latest story that crossed my desk comes from MDA Corporation. The company provides technology solutions to support all aspects of the information lifecycle, including data collection, data processing and management, information extraction, and information distribution.
Kathy Bryce, Principal of Andornot (one of our partners), met with Dave Hook, Manager of Operations Information and Configuration Management at MDA the other week. Dave showed Kathy some of the things MDA is doing with DB/TextWorks, and Kathy detailed it on Andornot's blog.
The short of it is that MDA is using over 30 different DB/Text Works databases to populate its intranet content. The home page displays the latest news and training courses, including how users can register for them online. There are more interesting details about MDA's story, and I'll let Kathy take it from here. Flip over to her post to read more about MDA's DB/Text Works story.
