Microsoft Lands Minnesota Cloud Contract

Business Productivity Online Suite (better known as BPOS) is Microsoft's cloud-based collection of communications apps that includes conferencing, e-mail and collaboration tools.

The state of Minnesota has a contract for "all executive branch agencies" to use the suite and gives the option for other state agencies to tap into the Web apps.

E-mail users should be pleased. Now they are relegated to a scant 100 MB of mail storage -- barely enough for many workers' Pam Anderson JPEG collections!

Do you like BPOS, or does the acronym POS mean something entirely different to you? Answers welcome from cloud or on-premises e-mail systems at [email protected]
