Those guys really “get it”

Last week, I blogged from Microsoft’s EMEA partner summit. It’s been very busy since I returned, but I wanted to take a moment to tell you all about the experience I had of having a roundtable with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. The topic of discussion among Steve and the partners was “the impact of government policy on innovation.”

Far from being transparent on this topic, I think Steve was genuinely engaged with the partners in the room (all of whom except for me were European partners) and what struck me most was how engaged and attentive this guy was to everything that was said.

For our part at Seemage, we think Microsoft really “gets it” now in our space, and is bringing to bear all its astonishing technological capabilities to really help customers manage and collaborate on all kinds information…including the 3D data that is so close to our hearts. We believe Microsoft has a huge opportunity to help its customers benefit from enterprise-wide product information flows, and we look forward to being a part of what we expect will be its enormous success in this space.
