Is “Vaporware” Back?

In the 80’s and 90’s vaporware was all the rage for software companies. What is vaporware? Wikipedia describes it as:

“In the computer industry, vaporware or vapourware is a product, typically computer hardware or software, that is announced to the general public but is never actually manufactured “

A more common explanation is a sales guy making promises of what the software “will do….eventually”. When buying software it is important to take a demo and actually witness for yourself what the software can do.

If the software company is telling you that “it’s in development” or “we will work with you to make that happen” or “It’s part of our next release” you are being sold vaporware. Your event business is too critical to your business to fall victim of a vaporware pitch of a desperate sales person.
