So, Chase went with .NET to retool is huge commerical card platform
called PaymentNet (see
the story here).
What pleases me most about these stories is not that the customer has
decided to go with .NET and Windows 2003 Server, a sign that they were persuaded
by the value proposition vis-a-vis their needs. No. The pleasing part is that
the customer is able to see the changes they needed to make to their business
and then find a way to technically make it happen- to be part of that. These are
things that make it really fun to come to work. Thanks, J.P. Morgan Chase &
Co. for making my day.
Thought for the day: A great band from the 90's was Sunny Day
Real Estate. Their most well-known song, "Seven", still holds up after
these years. I just heard it while completing this blog entry. Also, the answer
is Yes, regarding my previous post. Julee Cruise is most well
known for the intro music for Twin Peaks, but the whole album is incredibly
good. Check it out here, "Floating
Into the Night".
