We are reconsidering using SQL Server 2008 Web Edition, but are wondering exactly what Microsoft means by not being able to host LOB applications "such as CRM".
We provide our clients with web applications for performing financial transactions online. We also have internal users that utilize these same applications. Some features are only available to clients, and a few features are only available to internal users. Almost all features are exclusively accessed via the web.
Would this be considered a LOB application? The person I spoke with at Microsoft was very circumspect. I'd hate to spend $$$ licensing an app and find out we can't use it.
