It was interesting reading. Seems Microsoft didn’t bury the Stratature technology after all, but is using it as the foundation for its entry into the MDM market. The new product based on Stratature is codenamed “Bulldog”, and will aim at meeting these requirements:
- leverage existing technology investments
- integrates with customers’ software assets
- is easy to install and maintain
- provides a low total cost of ownership
Well, that’s a pretty tall order! A “technology preview” version will be released in Feb. 2008, with general availability planned to coincide with the next release of Office.
Please let us know what you think of Microsoft’s MDM Roadmap by commenting on this post.
