    Companies Using .NET


    Many of the programmers at my job are really excited about .NET. We have a
    couple major projects on the horizon and naturally, we would love to do them
    in .NET. There are a lot of good business reasons for doing them in .NET,
    however, our CIO is reluctant to use any technology until it's been out for
    two years, no matter how good the technology might be. I think if we can
    compile a list of companies that are currently doing .NET development, it
    might alleviate her concern. For example, I know that Verizon and MSNBC have
    already implemented systems in .NET. What other companies are doing .NET?
    Please post to this thread any companies doing .NET. The bigger the company,
    the better. If possible, please include a cite. Thank you very much.

    List so far:

    Company: MSNBC
    Cite: http://www.thedotnetmag.com/magazine..._1/default.asp

    Company: Verizon
    Cite: http://www.eweek.com/article/0,3658,...3D16440,00.asp

    Re: Companies Using .NET



    I'd like to add two global corporations, one commercial software vendor,
    ninteen retail/reseller store chains, and one local governement agency to
    that list, but unfortunately, there are NDA's attached to each of their projects
    at the moment.
    That probably didn't help much

    But if out of the two and half million people currently using the Beta -
    if we say that for every one hundred individuals one company is represented,
    it's easy to see that we have a lot of companies currently evaluating the
    product. ****, even one in one thousand is a conciderable number. Now, I
    don't know how many of these suspected companies evaluating .NET plan on
    using .NET right away, but every company i've talked to since November is
    already heading down that path.

    Anyway, I'll keep my eyes open. I'm also curious to know who's doing what
    with .NET out there.

    I would be glad to tell you that the company I work for will be using .NET,
    however I'm not allowed to do that. Let's just say that one of the largest
    financial services company in the world will be using it.

    Hi Rob, if any of these companies go public, like when EWeek did their article
    on Verizon, please remember to come back here and post. Thanks.

    I know that at least one of them plans on doing a very big press release
    when the time comes, but that won't be until the project is completed sometime
    at the end of first quarter 2002.

    I suspect quite a few companies planning on rolling something out with .NET
    probably won't have something in production until at least that time. Hopefully,
    your boss will understand that situation and be patient.

    He was just asking for a list of companies using .NET. Unless you're claiming
    that these companies are *not* really using .NET after all, your objection
    is irrelevent to the question that was asked.

    Oh, you must be one of those anti-.NET religious zealots. It must really
    bother you to see companies using .NET already...

    Re: Companies Using .NET

    hi
    i believe www.Cafepress.com uses .NET, because their site uses .ASPX pages
    (site is very fast, too).

    have you seen www.ibuyspy.com? this is a great demo site built entirely
    using .NET, you can download all the source code. you can download, setup,
    and customize a whole intranet/portal/online store in a few minutes. maybe
    that would impress your mgmt?

    i think its great if someone could compile a list like youre doing, because
    some of the examples MSFT cites are kind of iffy, in my view. i mean, if a
    company is using SQL Server 2000 as their DB, does that mean that they are
    using .NET? i dunno about that, but MSFT seems to think so. my definition
    of "using .NET" would be if a company had production machines with the .NET
    framework and if developers were using VS.NET. just my opinion.

    Hmmm.... That smells like Price Waterhouse Coopers. I hear the "one of the
    largest financial services company in the world" bable all the time from
    people who work there. They're brain washed to say that.

    Steve: Good point. Here are a few other sites I've seen using ASP.NET:

    http://www.deeptraining.com
    http://www.aspfree.com
    http://www.aspng.com

    Has anyone noticed any others?

    Yes, http://www.vbcity.net the .NET centric brother of http://www.vbcity.com

    Very well done unfortunately it doesn't appear that the site is getting a
    lot of traffic yet which is a shame.

    Nope. I'm not a big fan of big 6 firms. They should stick to accounting.
    I can say this, we deal mainly in insurance.
