   See the section below for the world's largest provider od softwate solutions!

  •  -  www.microsoft.com  -  Easily one of the biggest and most technically advanced providers of software for business solutions on the planet. (Click  HERE  to go to their "e-commerce/business solutions" page.) Their new server software (Enterprise, ) may soon dominate the market. (Apr. 2001.)

http://www.microsoft.com/BUSINESS/licensing/enterprise/casestudies.asp
Summary: Business and technical solutions for IT professionals and business decision makers looking to solve business problems by with applications and technology built by ISVs on the Microsoft family of servers.  Category =  Solutions: BUSINESS

 Harried Information & Technology (I.T.) 
Managers of medium-sized businesses take note! 
This one is definitely a "heavy." Check it out!! 
Another A.J. "Must-See."


  •  IBM  -  www.ibm.com - Another HUGE website. These are also the big boys of "Big Blue." On this website, you can find extensive software resources; order the newest, latest technology PC's for the office; download a printer driver for a printer that would not cooperate with your Intranet; (or find any other driver/device for your IBM computer); etc.   ***  Discover your own "Epiphany."   ***

  •  IBM is also one of the biggest is also one of the biggest software engineering firms in the world. Are you having trouble with your server? Is speed a problem with your software? Is your site not functioning the way it was intended? Then one of the very first firms you should contact is IBM, especially if your server/platform is an IBM product!!

  • Internet Security Systems -  Because Internet security is becoming 
       more and more important, I have added this site. No ITT manager 
       needs a lecture on how important this issue is to ALL companies in 
       today's marketplace. Go there and see show they can help you!! 
       (Added March 11th, 2002.) 


  •  -  www.cdw.com - This is a company that advertises that it sells,
    "Computing Solutions Built for Business."  
    I think that just about says it all. 

     They sell and do it all!    They have name brands (such as Compaq), hardware, software, networking, accessories, services, telephony, etc. 
    There is NOT an aspect of the computer related areas they not offer top-notch services and products for. They are also an extremely active and aggressive TV/Cable advertiser. (2001) This one receives my highest recommendation and easily is in the "Top Ten" of companies that offer computing solutions for the small to large business. 

Go to their web site. You will NOT be sorry. I guarantee it.

 FUJITSU -  One of the world's leaders in optical networking!  (ajs_top-ten_picks.gif, 169 KB)

  • .  -  www.fujitsu.com - another real super-heavy!
    These guys are for real and are maybe one of the few you could include in the group with guys like IBM and Microsoft!

     This company does it all, from networking to server applications. 

    Their specialty is global optical networking, and they are maybe 
    one of the very best in the world in this particular field. 

    My extensive research indicates this is a real contender with offices 
    all over the world - you would be hard-pressed to find ANY developed 
    country where they do not have a presence. Their background and 
     personnel are the very best. All my digging indicates this company 
     is a definite "contender." 

    Their web-site is also one of the snazziest I have seen. 
    It looks better - and works better (!)  - than most of the other 
    companies listed on this web page!!!

  • www.sun.com  -  A big company [Sun Microsystems] with maybe some big answers. There is probably not an area of your business that they can't assist you with. On TV, they advertise they are: "The 'Dot,' in Dot-Com." If anyone else made such a claim, I would laugh in their faces. (Or at the very least, snicker behind their backs.) But having used some of their hardware and software, I can honestly tell you that they are maybe one of the few companies that can back up such a claim. They offer resources for Developers, Service Providers, System Administrators, Executives, and Investors. They also offer support, training, and consultation.

www.PurchasePro.com - One of the biggest advertisers on TV. 
(March, 2001.) Their initial web page is obviously professionally done, 
although perhaps a bit too busy for my personal taste.

They have dozens of contacts and topics, far too many to name here. Let us just say they have a reputation for being one of the largest  "e-commerce"   providers on the Internet. They also may have one of the largest "B2B" networks in the World. They have hundreds of companies that they have allied themselves with or partnered with. 

In short, this is a company that, "Has it all goin' on." You must go here if you have ever considered a serious entrance to the Global Marketplace!
