Please feel free to contribute samj (talk) 21:41, 17 September 2008 (UTC) Hi samj, I'd like to contribute to updating the content, but have a potential COI because I work for RightScale, so I would appreciate your guidance and review to ensure that my edits are considered neutral and not self-promotional. Thank you, Angelatripp (talk) 20:50, 11 July 2011 (UTC)Angelatripp

Alas, people "in the biz" tend to speak in buzzwords and code like "cloud SaaS solutions for IaaS" that is totally incomprehensible to normal people. One suggestion is to use normal English. For example, I think they sell software as a service, not clouds nor solutions. W Nowicki (talk) 21:21, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Buzzwords are back in?[edit]

It looks like User:Angelatripp put all the buzzwords back in. This appears to be a WP:Single purpose account which is generally discouraged. For one of many examples:

RightScale is a SaaS-based cloud computing management solution for managing cloud infrastructure across multiple IaaS providers. RightScale enables organizations to easily deploy and manage business-critical applications across public, private, and hybrid clouds...

Means nothing to most readers. Please look at the articles on solution and cloud for example - I do not think this company sells those. Also look at the article on infrastructure, which generally means roads, pipes in the ground and bridges. Acronyms like XaaY ZaaQ etc. probably confuse normal people. Now to a certain very narrow set of this company's customers, these terms might mean something, but please see WP:PROMOTION: this is not the place to promote a company. Explain in plain English please, or the article will need to go through the deletion process. Thanks. W Nowicki (talk) 22:31, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
