Relevance[edit]

This article has no information apart from the corporate history that can be found on the companies website. To me it feels it has been written to better their google search result or marketing. Except if every company has a right to a Wikipedia page. Then I'll add my drycleaners in here too. --2A02:1810:3F09:DD00:2022:2F80:CF49:71CA (talk) 07:58, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

Hiya. Certainly previous incarnations of this article were overtly promotional in tone (seemingly reading as adverts for the company's "Certified Professional Program [..] to test professionals in five areas", or a link-farm to the company's various subsidiaries and products, or the completely innocuous stuff about "host[ing] an online community"). However, since then the content is (hopefully) somewhat improved. And, as a 2000+ person company (with at least a smattering of coverage in independent reliable sources), the community felt that it met the minimum requirements for inclusion. If there are remaining promotional elements that you think can/should be addressed, then please do take a stab. Or raise here, and we can try and address.

List of software[edit]

I see no problem with the change you've made to include the software but remove the links. It was the huge inventory of links back to your commercial site I took issue with. The list of software itself seems relevant enough. Thank you. Fowartehlluz (talk) 18:25, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

 Done Edits look good enough. In the future, please post new sections at the bottom of talk pages. Thanks —  crh 23  (Talk) 08:48, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Contested deletion[edit]

This page should not be speedily deleted because, while - granted - the article in its current form needs improvement (in particular to address the awful "list of dates and things", the SPEEDY nom seems to have been opened as an exercise in disruption to make a point. CSD A7 is not applicable as WP:GNG, WP:CORPDEPTH, and WP:SIGCOV are demonstrated. CSD G11 is not supported as there is sufficient non-promotional meat on the bones to balance any claims of puffery. If nominator feels strongly enough about it, they might go to the trouble of opening AfD(s) (instead of - bluntly - lazily slapping "speedy" tags on several dozen semi-related articles in a clear case of pointy disruption.) --Guliolopez (talk) 23:40, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Contested deletion[edit]

This page should not be speedily deleted because... (the content appears to be neutral. it focuses on the corporation's structure and history. it does not appear to market any products.) --Snsh (talk) 17:12, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
