Re: Might need to be..complicated
I am sure the label preferred comes with some perks we are not aware of but I do love the marriage analogy! LOL, what happens to the non preferred partners?

Re: Might need to be..complicated
This does seem like an unlikely relationship. I wonder if it will be fruitful. I wonder how long it will be until the first big fight...

Re: Might need to be..complicated
It probably does make sense to cooperate with multiple partners even though calling all "preferred" partners seems a bit iffy. I wonder if that's where marriages will end up, "honey, you are one of my preferred partners."

Might need to be..complicated
I somewhat understand their need to entertain two vendors from a negotiation and security perspective. They might use this strategy short term and eventually use one vendor long term depending on the need and the vendor performance. At times being married to one vendor puts companies at a disadvantage and results in greater costs and limited flexibility.
