    Spot on. MSFT losing enterprise commitments unnecessarily. They’re big enough to embrace market’s complex reality, but not acting that way.

    Wouldn’t mind checking out Cape Town one day, hope you had a great time over at Sharepoint saturday. Moving swiftly on, is there really only a 15% penetration rate in the medium-sized business space? If that figure is correct it seems there is real opportunity for growth there.

  • Amy, that’s the number that was given at WPC13 in Houston, and I’ve heard it a couple times since. And this is spread between corporate (1,000 to 5,000 end users) and SMB (less than 1,000 users) accounts.

    That article was exactly the type of conversations we should have in much larger forums. While cloud is the future, hybrid is more of reality for most organizations. IMHO, 100% cloud environments works best for small to medium shops where the ROI is much greater due to decrease staffing and hardware. Medium to Large organizations will typically opt for greater control and flexibility in changing markets. A well designed hybrid solution can achieve both.
    Thanks for posting this Christian!
