Its the end of the year, and I wanted to open up a question to the community:
"What do you need in 2008?"
The question is deliberately vague in order to get a bunch of different answers. It could mean "What type of software do you need to make a solution more appealing to you?" in the spirit of the early days of VDI when the community had to ask for a connection broker before the industry even knew what one was.
It could mean "What would you like to see us focus on with BrianMadden.com or at BriForum?" or "What features would you like to see on the website?"
The answers could be simple:
"Better printing support in XYZ product"
"Enhanced graphics performance in situation A"
"Nothing, everything is fine"
... or complex:
"I'd like to see a hypervisor, connection broker, application virtualization, and hybrid automobile all rolled into one product."
It can even be an answer like when you and your significant other are trying to decide where to go for dinner: "I don't know...what do YOU need?"
The point is to get it out there, for the world to read and, more importantly, for the companies to which you're referring to read. The more details you provide, the better the potential response. No guarantees of any results, though :)
