Here. Says InfoWorld:
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s office is issuing the marching orders, and the company is working to more tightly align business units. Using XML as the rallying cry, Microsoft is driving its .Net and Web services initiatives to solve problems associated with what it calls “customer scenarios.”
In a three-part series, InfoWorld examines the impact of Microsoft’s strategy across three core technology areas: application development, .Net servers, and client applications. The first part, published July 29, investigates Microsoft’s efforts to keep its loyal following of Visual Basic developers on its side. The second part, published August 5, details Microsoft’s plans to unify its .Net server architecture. The final story, on Aug. 12, will draw together Microsoft’s .Net strategy from the client application perspective.
