This will be a short post today. It has been my position for some time that the PR department for SE has been lacking in about every way possible. After posting a reply to Al Dean over at Matt Lombard’s On The Edge blog
I had a conversation with someone who actually knew what was going on. While I certainly don’t like the problems that have led to the choices made regarding publicity or the terrible lack thereof I have to respect the fact that they are real. I am going to stop criticism at this time in light of this and it is my hope that the underlying problems will soon be solved. I think it is well understood by those now running Solid Edge/Velocity just how large the gift of additional time has been from Dassault and Autodesk and that this is a problem that must and will be solved.
I am finding out just how convoluted and difficult it is to take a company that has suffered under legacy issues for some time and turn it and the attitudes of what is in many ways legacy bureaucracies void of original thoughts or abilities into eager, creative and productive team players.
