First off, thank you to Read/Write Web for listing us as one of the “10 Must Have Online Office Apps” today. We promise we won’t let you down when we actually launch
Also, thanks to C|Net for the mention on August 17th.
In other news, InfoWorld had the following coverage of a report by the Burton Group last week:
Deploying Google Apps could be a “career-limiting move for enterprise architects” if they expect too much from the software-as-a-service collaboration suite and its “rudimentary” feature set, the Burton Group research and consulting firm says in a new report.
It’s for exactly this reason that we’ve refused to compromise features just because SlideRocket runs in a browser. SlideRocket was conceived as an enterprise application and we want our users to be able to run circles around people using PowerPoint. We want our presentations to look better and we want the extra features (sharing presentations online and tracking viewers, remote meeting functionality built in, version control, the ability to create and manage a library of slides that is shared between users, etc.) to make people who bring SlideRocket into the enterprise to look like heroes, not suckers.
It’s nice that SlideRocket will also work for individuals who want to create animations for blogs and Web sites, and we’re looking forward to seeing what people create.
We’re getting closer and closer to launching our private beta. We’re currently deep in the throes of bug testing, as well as deciding which features just won’t make it for the initial version. Stay tuned, and we’ll post more information soon.
