Ray Lane delivered his opening keynote at SAF, discussing 'The Personal Enterprise', and of how for the new world of services to succeed, there must be value for the individual or the group. Charles Fitzgerald is now on presenting on the Microsoft vision on 'Software + Services'. He emphasises that the Microsoft's strategy is about the greater value produced by having services plus services.
Both charles and Ray make the observation of the rise of services, and the services disruption, and throughout the Q&A sessions, there are some interesting debate about Software versus Services, concerns about data location and privacy issues with the software as a service model, etc... I look forward to some of the discussions at the roundtables later this afternoon.
