Microsoft – Cloud skills in demand and big data project woes
Another busy week in the tech world saw Microsoft hit the headlines several times, not always for the most positive reasons.
Top story of the past week concerned a problem with the firm’s spam filters that meant Outlook and Hotmail email accounts were deluged with spam, and V3 readers were keen to find out what was going on.
Elsewhere a report from Rackspace found that the demand for cloud skills on the AWS and Azure platforms are on the up, which is good news for Rackspace as the company offers support to customers using these platforms.
Finally there was an eye-opening report from Capgemini looking at big data projects which found that many don’t achieve success if IT is left in charge, underlining the need for c-level executives to come together on new digital initiatives.
