comment Guidance for CDF Development, Security and Future of CDF?
Since you are physically present for the reviews, the best option is to do away with the CDs and bring a computer that has no network adaptor to the reviewer. For applications on the intranet I use CDFs that get all their data from a file server that we control and log access to. Loss of the CDF is not an issue because they contain no sensitive information.

comment Built-in unit strings recognized by Quantity?
@Rojo Note that in version 10 an association is used, so use Quantity; Keys[QuantityUnitsPrivate$UnitReplacementRules] if you are using 10.

comment Can CDF file embedded in a web page receive external parameters?
The enterprise version provides a different signature to the CDF which enables the same features you would get in Player Pro.

comment Suitability of Mathematica as platform for engineering calculations and programs
Verbeia, I agree that some data import/export tools are necessary. I think new users always struggle when they can't just File->Open a spreadsheet and start working with the data, they don't know where to go next. One of the first things I did was convert one of our legacy DOS programs into a CDF to show to engineers and management. It was very helpful to demonstrate the capabilities.

Albert, great overview of what is needed to introduce Mathematica to a large department. Regarding the tools that your company developed, are you talking about MMA packages or something else? Are there any general tools that you found necessary to develop, or are these things specific to your business?

comment Suitability of Mathematica as platform for engineering calculations and programs
This is a corporate environment. We do have a history of formally developed, validated and documented programs, so we may be in a better position than many. That history has been diminished though as Excel became the main tool. I think we would need to have some full time developers making sure best practices are followed. However I need to create a system that can be used by the average engineer, even if they don't know how to develop the programs they are using.

Very good suggestion that I hadn't fully considered. It seems that this is something that would need a lot of up-front thought to design it well.
