Past, Present, Future?
Some Personal Musings
Recently (2003-2004), I was the CTO of an Enterprise Software company – Entigo.
Entigo was a dot.bomb survivor, that after $40,000,000 had been blown on catalog & order offerings, successfully re-cast itself as the vendor of “Warranty Chain Management Software”.
Despite excellent lead customers, sales hit a wall. The company continues to limp along.
Entigo is not alone!
