Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The vultures are gathering around the corpse of failed e-tailer boo.com - and it's not just the creditors looking to pick at the bones.

Jobsite - which claims it's the "UK's leading internet recruitment company" - believes the demise of Boo.com highlights both the danger of gold rush spending in the Internet community and the strength of traditional profit-making business models.

Jobsite marketing director Chris Newson said in a statement: "Last year Jobsite was criticised by experts for making a profit. We were told we were getting our business strategy wrong.

"The boot now seems to be on the other foot, and Internet companies are looking to well-established, profit-making internet operations, such as Jobsite, as an prime example of how to get it right.

"Jobsite has concentrated on establishing a solid business foundation and developing a quality product. Unlike Boo.com, which hyped itself and disillusioned its users from the outset, Jobsite has concentrated its resources on making its site the best in the business," he said.
