Vendor pricing practices stuck in 2000

Tom Smith, writing for InternetWeek, has a nice rant on enterprise system vendor pricing pratices. Here's a sample: "Vendors like to say the economy is the root of their problems, practically the root of all evil. What an easy, self-serving excuse. They should drop the self-pity and focus on what can help their business: software quality, customer care, realistic ROI promises and-most important-simpler, better, and more transparent pricing."

I also discussed vendor pricing in a post on Sep. 7.
