  • Blog Post: The Microsoft Cloud Story – in One Slide

    One part of my team’s mission is to evangelise our Software + Services (S+S) strategy and our cloud offerings, with an emphasis on Windows Azure . As part of this I get to present many sessions that seek to explain our cloud strategy, It would be fair to say some of our customers and partners don’t have...
  • Blog Post: GOVIS Session

    I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to present a session on cloud computing at the 2009 Government IT conference GOVIS – which was a lot of fun.

  • Blog Post: Back into the Light

    I've just returned from a week in the US attending our annual global Microsoft briefing. It's always a great event but this year was extra special.
