The essential guide to IT transformation

Sun has set aside $300 million for a programme aimed at providing selected customers with everything needed to get their businesses dotcommed faster. "We're only at the start of the dot-com learning curve," said CEO Scott McNealy. "As the road gets steeper and you don't drive at Internet speed, you'd better keep an eye out for the tire marks on your back." Eligible startups qualify for free development licenses and reduced prices on deployment licensing for e-commerce infrastructure software including security, search engine, directory, Web and applications servers, content management, load balancing and profiling. Together with its integrator partners, Sun also plans to offer significant discounts on consultancy services, web design and business plan development. The three new 'Ready Centres' announced this week in Menlo Park California, Paris and Tokyo, will form a key part of the programme in offering customers the chance to try out their new systems in a lab environment. ®
