Big Apple Gets Big Cloud

The great city of New York struck a colossal cloud deal with Microsoft. Under a single license, some 100,000 city workers can use Redmond apps, such as Office, over the cloud. Unlike a lot of license deals, NYC only pays for the apps it actually uses. And since they come from the cloud, it should be easy to track use.

The new deal replaces what used to be 40 different agreements.

Is the cloud a bane or boon for IT? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
