Is it just me, or does Wonderware sound like something that Victoria's Secret would stock?

It sure is easy to make wild claims, isn’t it?? Who believes that kind of sales pitch? I know WonderWare has been in business quite a while, so somebody must be buying it!
Here’s a classic siren song that I commented on a while back…
At the risk of being called a shill (I do sell Wonderware), the new Application Server product has delivered these kinds of results.
An object oriented, template driven namespace on the plant floor is a huge leap forward.
It’s odd to me that no one in industrial marketplace blogs on the software approaches used on the plant floor.
One would think that an object-oriented, template driven namespace would be complete gibberish to anyone on the plant floor! Are we talking C++ style templates and namespaces as in a way of avoiding naming conflicts in shared libraries? If so, you may be interested to know that I have an Ajax driven, SOA based, Web 2.0 platform that will send your profits soaring…
While the Wonderware offering is well developed and extremely functional, I must agree with the posters, this is a lot of gibberish that is not well understood by many plant people. Perhaps that’s why it’s being aimed at people that understand architectures and wish to build on them.
