Bharat Shah: Microsoft Online Services Overview

25 minutes, 55 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Bharat Shah is the General Manager of Microsoft's Online Services division. His group is responsible for taking Microsoft's business productivity software to the cloud, essentially turning traditional utilty software (you buy, deploy, manage) into distributed (Internet/Intranet) hosted services. For enterprise customers to small businesses, being able to subscribe to software services versus taking on the responsibilities and costs associated with deployment and management of software systems is very compelling.

Here, we talk about why this approach to software-as-a-service is so important as we move more of our software skyward. The term BPOS used in the conversation is more of a code name then an official Micrsosoft product moniker.  In this case it refers to a suite of communication and collaboration hosted services like Exchange, SharePoint, etc - but there will be more: that's one of the key points here.

Tune in.
