Could hurt Microsoft as many companies revamp themselves for the era of "cloud" computing, a Google-backed approach in which software is easily accessed online and sold as a subscription product, rather than installed on companies' computers.
"All of a sudden this looks really serious," Gartner analyst Tom Austin said. "By all accounts, [Microsoft] should be burying Google, and they're not." Microsoft's Mr. Shaw said, "It is a long race, and we feel good about the products we're delivering."
Microsoft Hits Back as Google Muscles In
The challenge is not their technology difference nor their technical features. It is that Microsoft has the feet on the street and Google dos not. Businesses, in particular, large organisations like to have face to face negotiations with vendors before they commit to their products. Microsoft has the worldwide presence with long established customer relationships, Google doesn't. So, I think Microsoft will win on this.
William, thank you fro the thoughts.. I'm more referring to the lower level commands, the bases.. Use of NMCI / Navy or NKO / Army, specifically. The trend is increases security from cyber terrorists and other threats. As far as Cisco is concerned.. good information, thank you, I'll have to look that up :) Have a great day..
Oh..and something else came to mind. Working within a secured military environment, thank you William for bring up security, how will cloud oriented companies, those developing and distributing the technology, address military installations.. The military is going to surely be skeptical of such technology, how will these companies overcome the obstacle that is our National Security? We can only have some many mainframes, they are always being hacked.. How can Microsoft, Google, Cisco, or even Oracle convince the military's elite that these technologies will help promote efficiency and encoura ge cost saving measures while also ensuring a secured infrastructure?
