Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) retracted one of the computer companies named on its "danger list" yesterday. D&B had sent out its regular list of companies with dubious credit ratings, which is designed to act as an early warning system for other businesses. One of the companies listed was distributor Enta Technologies. But on closer inspection it emerged that Enta was not in receivership or suffering from bad credit at all. Indeed, it was alive and well and thriving in Telford. D&B said it was a typo, and sent round a swift email to clarify that Enta was "entered on to the list in error." "There is no problem with this company," D&B says. Jon Atherton, general manager of Enta, said: "It's ironic really – we've recently more than doubled our sales staff. As far as company financing is concerned, the only thing we lease here is the coffee machine! This sort of mistake doesn't do anyone any favours, but it doesn’t really worry me either." ®
