Please observe the following guidelines when submitting a quote for an APMdigest or DEVOPSdigest list

■ APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest reserve the right to edit any quote to ensure it meets the following guidelines. However, APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest will never make any edits to intentionally change the meaning of the original quote.

■ The inclusion of any quote on a list is at the sole discretion of APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest.

■ The quote should be from the most appropriate expert within your company. When you submit the quote, make sure to include the name and title of the person being quoted.

■ The quote should address the specific question posed for the list. Quotes that do not clearly address the question cannot be included on the list.

■ The quote should be objective, vendor-neutral, and not promote or even mention your company, products, partners or any vendor or brand — or criticize the competition.

■ The quote should be about one paragraph or less — about 2-4 sentences. Average responses are between 50 and 150 words. Anything more than that is probably too long. Quotes that are too long will be edited by the editor.

■ If you want to talk about the topic at length, you are free to submit a separate blog on the topic, to be posted on APMdigest or DEVOPSdigest. However, if you represent a vendor, and would like to submit a separate blog, please note that you must have an open blogging account or be eligible to open a blogging account on the site, and follow the Vendor Forum blogging guidelines for APMdigest or DEVOPSdigest.

■ The quote should provide only one answer to the question, and focus on that specific point. A quote with multiple points jammed into it will not be usable. For example, if the list is about a type of technology that will achieve a certain goal, the quote should cover only one technology option; not multiple technologies. The format of the lists requires all quotes to be categorized, and it is difficult to place a quote on the list when it fits into multiple categories. If the quote fits into multiple categories, it may be edited into pieces, or may not be included on the list.

■ The categories for each list are buckets that similar quotes fit into. If you check out any of the sample lists, the categories are represented by the headers. Categories of a list are not predetermined — they are determined only by the submissions received for that list. APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest build the categories around the quotes received for each particular list.

■ The quote should be specific. When a quote is too general, it may not fit into any specific category, and therefore cannot be included in the list.

■ The format of the quote should not be a list of bullet points. The quote should read as a cohesive short paragraph.

■ If you are unclear whether a quote will be appropriate for the current list, run it by the editor.

■ Please send the quote by the designated deadline. APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest cannot guarantee that a late quote will be included on the list.

■ Each quote will include a hyperlink to the company's home page — the exact link to the company home page without any additional code. Only sponsors of APMdigest or DEVOPSdigest can use a different URL. No other hyperlinks are permitted within the quote, unless the company is a sponsor of APMdigest or DEVOPSdigest.

■ APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest will always send an email to you or your designated contact (such as a PR rep) with a link to the page whenever one of your quotes is posted as part of a list.

As a consumer, when you order products online, how do you expect them to get delivered? Some key requirements are: the product must arrive on time, well-packed, and ultimately must give you an easy gateway to return it if it is not as per your expectations. All this has been made possible via a single application. But what if this application doesn't function the way you want or cracks down mid-way, or probably leaks off information about you to some potential hackers? Technical uncertainty and digital chaos are the two double-edged swords dangling over this billion-dollar ecommerce market.
