  • Hi Greg,

    We implemented 3 composite applications at a Belgium Energy Supplier. Two of them are used by the company’s customers and the other one is used within the call center to support the customers.
    We started in April 2007 and delivered the last one in March 2008. The only thing is that we built them with the Composite Application Framework, release 7.0.12. Can we still enter these applications for the competition?

    Kind regards
