This is one of many thought-provoking, informative articles on a new Microsoft website on the mission-critical enterprise.  It includes perspectives from a range of CIOs on the importance of business intelligence, collaboration and business applications to their operations.

 

This site gives IT and business leaders in commercial and public sector organisations insights into how Microsoft works with our customers and partners to design, build, and support mission critical solutions that create business value and foster innovation. After all, it’s not products that enable a mission critical enterprise—it’s a combination of people, process, and technology.

As for the answer to the question posed in the title of today’s blog entry it is better if you read the article to find out rather than any attempt to summarise it here.  Besides, I am confident you will find other content on this site that will assist your understanding of Microsoft’s comprehensive portfolio of software platforms for mission-critical computing.
