In Review: Interoperability Headlined 2004
Much of our focus at Enterprise Networking Planet is interoperability. Most network/system administrators and users don't want their infrastructure and data held hostage to a single vendor, and must be able to mix and match according to their needs. There does not yet exist a vendor that is capable of supplying every need, and if there were such a vendor they would get uppity and not treat customers well. So competition and being able to select software and hardware from a variety of sources serves customers best.
