Brilliant. Falls in to the category of “too much time on their hands” but frankly, if more people with time on their hands did work this good, the phrase would have a better name :)
Diana demanded a laptop with faster wake-up. Windows and Toshiba told Diana, “We’ll build it. You come to Tokyo to approve it.” She did.
there are two others in the “seal of approval” series so far
Postman Pat is heading to the cloud! Okay I’m sure the Royal Mail is tired of the cartoon references….great news to hear they’re heading to the cloud though with Microsoft Online. CSC will deliver our Business Productivity Online Suite in the company.
PR newswire quotes Royal Mail Group's Head of Technology Service Delivery, Carol Olney, said: "This deal forms part of Royal Mail's drive to invest in new technology to improve efficiency and customer service. The Microsoft suite will give people across Royal Mail Group the tools they need to do their jobs more effectively, enabling our business units to collaborate with each other, partners and other external organisations more freely, easily and securely while securing cost savings."
InformationWeek also has some details.
Kudos to CSC and the UK team. A big win!
Wow….2 years in a row!! I was very pleased to collect the winners award and bottle of champagne last night as my blog won the Individual IT professional male category at the Computer Weekly IT Blog Awards 2009
thank you to everyone who voted for me and for continuing to read my blog. I’m working hard to keep up the standard and sincerely appreciate you visiting here. It’s not really my day job so to be recognised with this award makes all the late hours of blogging worthwhile. thank you very much.
This is one of my favourite slides from the PDC last week – it comes from the session titled Windows Azure Platform Business Model “Transforming to a services business“ by my friend Dianne O’Brien.
When talking to customers, colleagues and journalists I often talk about these models and Dianne’s slide will help me leave people with a visual representation. It’s even more powerful if we add example customer scenarios to each of these. Allow me to do that with a few fictional scenarios (i.e. these are not customers using Azure but they could be)
So there you have it….the reasons to think about cloud as a new model for computing. thanks Dianne!
