New editorial on IT-Enquirer: Middleware is the 3d way in technology adoption; boosting productivity by using well-thought out interfaces. Saturday 9 June 2001 PDF Print ANTWERP, AMSTERDAM, LONDON - June 07, 2001 - http://.it-enquirer.com On the fifth of June, Gartner released a first take on middleware as the third way in technology adoption. IT-Enquirer published an editorial on HP's e-business enabling middleware called NetAction, the day before. As always, both the basic article on NetAction and the subsequent quotes by Gartner are available as freely downloadable, copyright-free editorial from IT-Enquirer. Another pressing issue in technology wonderland is the release of a new Unix by Apple. Called Mac OS X, the new system wraps a powerful but ugly Unix foundation in a beautiful and efficient interface. IT-Enquirer contains an elaborate article on the value of interfacing for productivity boosting. IT-Enquirer concludes much interface efficiency or misery can be blamed on the developer. Starting today, IT-Enquirer contains a forum section where visitors will be able to discuss the topics covered on IT-Enquirer with peers and occasionally with professionals from the vendor community. Currently, the two forums that have been opened (starting June 12) are moderated by the publisher. When a forum delivering interview-capabilities and information exchange with vendors opens, registered users of IT-Enquirer will receive an announcement upfront for these limited-time opportunities to talk with the people who develop the products and services. ------ About IT-Enquirer and its publisher, Erik Vlietinck, Ll.D. Erik Vlietinck is a Belgian and a dr. of Law, currently dividing his time between Belgium, Holland and the UK. He has been writing about information technology as a freelance for over 6 years now. He has built an expertise in a limited number of technologies, which he covers on IT-Enquirer and KM-Informer. IT-Enquirer is Erik's attempt to help others in his line of business get their work done more efficiently and within shorter time periods. Background articles and technical briefs often require much research which--even with the Internet as a help--take a lot of time and effort. Erik hopes his initiative will help his colleagues take off more rapidly, resulting in faster turnaround. He believes he can especially help his freelance colleagues with this service. Both IT-Enquirer and KM-Informer are also valuable knowledge bases for IT-managers and -directors who wish to assimilate information on technology in an easily digested form.
