Of course, there have been many success stories as well, but the reality is that the traditional technology sales model never did a particularly good job of facilitating an alignment of goals between the customer and the vendor. As a result, vendors who focused almost exclusively on sales as the only goal often did not stick around to ensure that the value of their product was realized for their customers.
