Today was educational.

I was…um…invited to a product release meeting for a major hardware company today.  And, since I received a stipend, I am not allowed to talk about any specifics.

However, afterward there was a focus group.  And it was this that was was most illuminating.  You see, I thought I knew what a small business was.  However, my idea of a small business is completely different than this company’s idea of what a small business is.  In the focus group there were several other companies repersented.  And the IT budgets for those other companies ranged from $2,000,000-$20,000,000.  Not net profit….IT budget.

And the device itself?  The starting price was almost $8,000 and went up from there.

At that price, how could you not order three?
