On Friday, June 6 of Microsoft's Tech-Ed I will be hosting a Birds of a Feather Session on the topic "Software + Services is For Small Companies Too". It will be held in Room S330 E at noon.
To continue the conversation, please add your comments and opinions to this blog post. If you are unable to attend feel free to add your thoughts as well here.
Here are some questions to get you started thinking about the topic:
What is Software + Services?
Are small companies afraid of software + services? Are they afraid of cloud computing? Why?
Doesn't cloud computing leverage the efforts of small companies? If cloud computing makes IT a commodity, doesn't this allow small companies to be even more nimble in their development efforts?
What are the real advantages that large companies have over small companies? What about the innovators dillemma? How do large companies keep their current customers happy and assure future growth through innovation? Doesn't this help small companies. Doesn't cloud computing help small companies innovate even more?
