Vague Enterprise Software Product Definitions


There's a great interview over at c|net news where the interviewer takes an HP VP to task for the extremely vague statements around their enterprise software product (in HP's case, I think it's "Adaptive Enterprise"):

The interviewer basically keeps asking "Yeah, but what does that really mean?" over and over again and the VP just keeps repeating empty PR blather.

ROFL, "I disagree that it was unclear. Adaptive Enterprise defines an entity where a company will be able to dynamically readjust to changes that affect its business."  That's going in the quote file!
