I think this could be a good thing, I would like to see articles on the use of various products as long as we know the source and as you mentioned it doesn't become an opportunity for the marketing departments to run wild with brochure-ware.

Keep up the good work Steve.

This sounds like a good idea, certainly worth a try. Focusing on how products work (i.e. no marketing hype) should be useful.

I support the concept of sponsored articles. This is a logical step as SQL Server Central continues to grow. The parameters that you have set for such an article will provide a level of security for the integrity of this type of article. Not to mention a source of income that could be utilized to further enhance the SQL Server Central experience.

Sounds great. An idea - the better the article, the less you charge the vendor.

I also have no problem with sponsored articles...a lot of the time,regardless of the source,they have a valueable lesson or tidbit of knowledge in them.
As long as it's technical, it'd be a learning experience, and not an overt sales pitch.

I think it's a great idea. A great many products are out there, and they are not being used, or looked at as there is always that learning curve, or the chance to see any actual value.
This could bridge that gap and work for all involved.

It sounds like a great way to get more information out there, but it cannot be overstated how important that disclosure of the source is, as mentioned in item number 3.

I agree with Lowell, as long as it's techical it sounds like a great idea. I'd like to see the sponsored content soon.

And how about creating a special subscription for the sponsored content? Just a suggestion.


Best regards!

As one who has learned a great deal from this site, and thirsts for more knowledge, the sponsored discussions sound like just what is needed. From those, we just may be able to make a decision to download a trial version of a product and then answer those phone calls from a Marketing Department.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
