I have an opportunity to create a great Flex application that
my company will sell to Fortune 500 companies. My boss thinks we're
going to get pushback from Fortune 500 IT managers because Flash 9
is "too new", "too risky", or "we just don't allow any plugin
downloads at our company!
Personally, I think arguments are silly, and I don't expect
to hear them from top-quality, informed IT managers.
But to get started, I need to show my boss info that building
an application based on Flash 9 is not "risky business!" Links to
white papers, News articles or even blogs will be greatly
We do hear that a lot. Flash 9 in completely compatable with
every SWF ever made - try to get any other piece of software to do
Flash 9 is also chock full of security features making it one
of the safest pieces of software around. If anyone in your company
goes to a site with Flash content, then they already allow
plug-ins; they probably don't even know they have the Flash player!
Check out www.flex.org as a starting place. There are links
to all kinds of stuff there. Good luck and we appreciate your
efforts. Contact me off-line if you'd like to speak to an Adobe
account representative in your area.
