The Learning Edge Builds a Sales
The Learning Edge implemented an application for a large computer manufacturer
that makes product recommendations based on a potential customer's situation.
The application is distributed by the manufacturer as part of its marketing
materials. It uses a Windows front-end to gather information about the potential
customer's site, such as the hardware in place, the operating systems used,
and the development methodologies employed. It then applies a rule-base
of around 175 rules to that information, making recommendations of the products
that would be most suitable for that customer.
