Some analogies work part way.

If I want a new car, I do not phone FORD HQ or other major manufacturer ... I
visit a local dealer & verify that they do have tech support, I check what is
on the lot & I look at brochures that chart features & prices.

Many great videos have been created that show mixtures of products working on
same IBM platform.  A BP can say that we can install all of this for you.  A
place to go to see the videos, on-line even, is simple.  From a menu we say
we interested in THE SOLUTION for ____ our situation is ... chose
individual/business/government industry within that / size of enterprise,
then we look at some video demos of alternative solutions & say what we most
interested in & are linked to the BPs in our geographic area that implement
that solution mixture.

whatever, although we might not know 100% of the particulars & again, the
technology is there to give us same kinds of choices I get when I walk into
an auto dealer showroom to narrow down what is right for my tastes & budget
... and in the IBM analogy, what BPs are in my geographic area or serve my
area. (Alister Wm Macintyre) (Al Mac)
