In the environmental analysis the economic indicators, include Executives and Analysts. There is a presentation which begins with the operator whereby the operator takes control of the presentation and does invites the top leaders to offer there speeches and recommendations. One of the economic indicators is Bret Schaefer who is the vice president of Sun Microsystems, Jonathan Schwartz, the CEO of Sun and Michel Lehman who is the CFO and EVP of Cooperative Resources. The purpose of the representation is discussing the Sun’s fiscal year whereby customers are invited to log on to the Sun website (sun.
com/investors) which has more details on the copy of the operations analysis data sheet with nine quarters of the financial and operations information including the completed quarter. In the sites Bret said that they had posted slides which can be viewed which also accompany the remarks which are prepared. The slides may be used at the same URL, sun. com/investors (Sun Microsystems Inc, 2007). According to John Schwartz there is a clear Solaris and its center virtualization properties which open a world of new opportunities beyond computing.
He believes that, with the Sun Fire X4500, which he believes that it is a thumper, it will set the groundwork for a new line of data warehousing appliances which are based on general principle computing and open source operating organizations. There are almost 20 pet bytes of Sun Fire X4500 which have been shipped which are like a thumper and are now on an annual billing run rate of $100 million (Sun Microsystems Inc, 2007). Technological Sun Microsystems has introduced the open source community that has been used in the NetBeans’ platform for software development.
The platform is used for the development of the Sun’s products and is expected to be the standard development environment in Sun Microsystems. CollabNet played an important role in the development of the NetBeans website by contributing the CollabNet environment and licensing. Sun Microsystems has become one of the major forces in the global internet market and it is also the major supplier of workstations and servers. It invented the java technology that has become developers’ language of choice.
The java technology has been used in creating web-based applications and other applications and it is the valuable development environment, since it is enhanced both at the core level and at a full development environment. The recent enhancement was by developing the NetBeans software (CollabNet, 2004). Sun Microsystems has also been involved in the development of technology for many other companies and institutions. The company was involved in the support of the major technology upgrade of the Philadelphia University, one of the leading universities in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
The university wants to be the leading education centers in the Middle East and has therefore adopted the sun Ray Appliances so that they may provide the students with an advanced programming and development environment. The university wanted a solution that could run UNIX operating platform for the faculty of the university and other advanced appliances for the students. Sun Microsystems was also involved in the development of the computer laboratories in the university.
This has enhanced the learning process of the students in the university since they have the UNIX operating systems and the hot desk technology that makes it easy for the students to log on once in a day. There is also the advantage of the centralization and pooling of the information resources that have reduced the maintenance overhead of the workstations and the servers in the computer laboratories. The reason for the system upgrade was to provide the students with a world-class facility for the education purposes (CollabNet, 2004).
