What a Week
I spent most of the week in New Orleans at Microsoft Convergence and today I am back in Boston at a Salesforce regional event. Interesting juxtaposition going on. I’ll be posting on Convergence next week (Wednesday) and posted on what I think this event in Boston will be talking about. Last month in New York, Salesforce held a similar event but I also expect that the message has evolved somewhat too. But here’s the juxtaposition: Salesforce is focusing on the social/mobile/analytic enterprise with cloud as a key part but really as a component and not necessarily THE driver. Meanwhile Microsoft held a very good Convergence event this week in which it positioned itself as embracing the cloud for its customers. More later.
