Hey, I’ll Take It (a victory for on premises)

NewImage

In July, I wrote a post for this blog decrying the use of the phrase “on premise” to describe traditional software that is deployed at the customer’s location. I posited that this should rightly be referred to as “on premises” with the final s in tact.

Late yesterday, there is news of a victory of sorts. I received an email from my Sage colleague Tammy Mathews in which she informed me that the new Sage writing standards will include the correct usage for on premises!

I consider this one small step for a man. One giant leap for correct usage!

My Interview of Peter Wolf of Azamba

I am pleased to present the second (of what I hope will be many) interviews with professionals who are on Ed’s List. Once again, these are firms that offer only fixed price agreements, have eliminated timesheets for all professionals, and offer a service guarantee.

This interview is with Peter Wolf of Azamba Consulting whose purpose is to help customers gather and organize all of their business information and turn it into knowledge.

Introducing Ed’s List

I have been wanting to do this for quite sometime, but I finally have put together what I call Ed’s List.

Simply put, it is a list of the IT (information technology) professional knowledge firms of which I am aware who:

  • Offer only fixed price agreements and do not bill by the time unit
  • Have eliminated timesheets for all professionals.
  • Offer a service guarantee.

The list can be found at http://edkless.com/edslist/ or by clicking the link for the list located at the top right of this blog.

If you or someone you know belongs on the list, please let me know and I will add them forthwith.
