A week ago I blogged a little about InfoPath and the fact that Bill Gates had said that InfoPath will probably be the closest thing today to the dominant Microsoft forms technology moving forward,  so Bill why not just buy InfoView and leave InfoPath for forms design and offline usage scenarios.  What’s InfoView:

With InfoView your organisation can:

  • Publish InfoPath forms to the web – providing external users who do not have InfoPath on their desktops the same rich and dynamic user experience of InfoPath forms with web forms
  • Leverage XML standards to capture data via web forms and route data into back-end systems with no manual operation

    We’ve been playing with infoview for about 3 months now. Let’s just say the Bill made the right move in not purchasing infoview. In addition, we’ve heard from our Microsoft Rep that there is a project in the works to finally have InfoPath generated forms as pages.

    Thanks for some – from the trenches – feedback. Its great news to hear that Microsoft are doing the sensible thing as well!
