|MANMAN gets its newest face yet
MKs VP of software development Jeff Straw says that individuals at HP have already expressed interest in the technology. Opal is web and multi-media enabled, so the demo application on the Opal Web page is very pretty. When MK sent some screen shots of the new MANMAN screens to their advertising agency, the agency came back and said that the pictures seemed rather bland couldnt MK come up with something snazzier? Sorry, said Straw, this is a business application after all. There just isnt any purpose in having pink dinosaurs walking across the screen. Call me a nerd, but I look forward to talking to the beta site to find out just what the new screens do for such plebian and quotidian qualities as usability, efficiency, and getting the job done. Oh bland, bland, bland.
The MK Group calls the combination of Opal technology and their re-engineered MANMAN screens Insight. It sounds like MK and their beta site chose a few strategic screens and re-engineered them for Opal. If the Opal/Insight product takes off, we can hope for a lot more screens to be converted. The beta site customer is slated to talk about their experience at the MK Exchange Conference, August 23-27. Expect MK to announce the next GA (general release) of HP MANMAN at that time.
