The feedback on our announcement of our enterprise strategy, and the release of the new Enterprise Edition has been most gratifying. First of all, we’ve heard from a lot of customers with feedback about the new edition and the new features. I’m not going to give any gory details, but lets just say that the ability to restrict application access by IP address range is the breakout new star of the Enterprise Edition!
We’ve also had quite a bit of coverage of the Enterprise Edition in the press, and the blogosphere. First out of the gate was J. Nicholas Hoover of Information Week with "Intuit Sneaks in to Enterprise Collaboration". The article talks a little about how we come in below the radar, and then spread.
Web Worker Daily gave us a quick blurb in their Coffee Break 17. My new second favorite adjective to describe QuickBase? Venerable. We have been around for nearly 8 years, which does not make us a spring chicken, but we’re a little spry to be venerable. (Just so you know, my favorite adjective to describe QuickBase? Rocks.)
James E. Powell of the Enterprise Systems Journal picked up the baton with an article, talking in depth about the new features.
Bill Ives on the Fast Forward Blog (always a great read, by the way) wrote a nice article about our announcement. Bill has been keeping an eye on us for a while (he also wrote an article about XM Radio’s use of QuickBase). Bill had an interesting discussion with Josh Holbrook, who is an analyst at the Yankee Group. He also went in depth about the Enterprise Edition features, and how we came up with them — hint? We asked our largest customers! He even gave a pointer back to this blog. Thanks Bill!
