SPEAK YOUR MIND

  1. this latest survey contained interesting areas that provoked a little thought. “Best of Breed or Single Platform” poised against an array of applications. Thats a good point to consider.

    • Hi Stacey,

      Thank you, as always, for taking the time to complete the survey. Your help is very much appreciated!

      Thank you for the feedback! Yes, I am very curious what people think about that. The results will be very interesting!

      Take care,
      Michelle

    • Pfft! I have used many ‘arrays of applications’ each one usually does *one* thing well, and the rest are superfluous wastes of disk space. Of course it’s nice to have all the tools available, but when it comes done, each user really only wants to be using the best of breed — anything less is a waste of resources.

  2. when working in Houston for a large company in the energy corridor, we used the “single platform” as a strong selling point to justify the software we were currently utilizing to execute a clients project. OF course this was from a modeling/drafting/design standpoint, and the mentality we were hanging on was the fact that all the tools were from under one umbrella. Namely, Autodesk. Autocad, Inventor and 3dmax. Although the confidence level in that fact was based solely on “that fact” and not actual experience. I can remember the actual interfacing to be a tad clunky and not as seamless as we anticipated.
