Siebel on SQL Server 2000

If you’re using Siebel (and you know who you are), this is a webcast on using Siebel with SQL Server 2000.  We should know – we use Siebel as our enterprise CRM product on SQL Server 2000… so much so that we have a LOT of custom web services interfaces into Siebel.  We even have our own custom add-on to Outlook 2003 that allows us to work with Siebel sales information and do opportunity entry DIRECTLY into Outlook 2003.  It also synchronizes Siebel CRM customer data locally to our laptops so that we can work with Siebel off line.  I certainly hope they go over the things that we, MICROSOFT, have down with Siebel internally because I think that that’s the most amazing and fascinating stuff not to mention a huge statement about the extensibility of Siebel.  I ain’t going to lie to you – we’re on a fairly old version of Siebel so the client components are fairly old the latest but I can say that the stuff that we’ve done to extend Siebel through web services has been super-cool.  I should know – I use it weekly!
