Costing in excess of $20000 and being in a class
with a small number of
members doesnt make anything notable.
Paintings by a moderate artist might fall into that category, but the
paintings would just be listed under the artist.
What else is notable about this?
I know very little about DMExpress - hence the stubbiness :) Here's my scenario:
I work in the domain of ETL.
Someone mentions DMExpress. I have no idea what it is.
I head to Wikipedia, my first resource when I want to know what *anything* is.
Should there not be an article? There aren't that many ETL tools. Your
analogy is a bit flawed: You're saying that the artist is notable, but
his paintings aren't. The equivalent then would be something like that
the company is notable, but that individual copies of their products
aren't. Really, though, in many cases, the company is not notable,
their product isn't notable, and obviously individual instances of
their products are not.
To resolve the question of whether my example of a stub was above or
below the minimum quality waterline (just as an example, delete it for
all I care :)), we do need to agree whether DMExpress is notable or
not. A brief search shows 800 google results including magazine
articles, so I'm not sure what the "no" argument would be.
Actually some further expansion on ETL would be nice - I don't
understand the concept of "data warehousing" yet. Is this basically
selling credit card details and other personal info to the highest bidder?
