IBM CEO Palmisano: Client-Server Computing Is Dead

Interesting read here! We are definately headed in the right direction with SaaS! We should hear more news about our relationship with Verizon soon I would assume. This technology
is really heating up! Gltal's

Palmisano said businesses need to migrate to more efficient computing models where applications are stored centrally and can be tapped from a broad range of computing devices.

Why is Microsoft betting all on their alleged view while hedging their bets with a belated SaaS strategy, bits and pieces of something 'Live' and 'Dynamic' that won't come into being as a reality until 2008, and an operating system ecology that is imprisoned by a lack of virtualization technology?

"IBM's view of business computing's future contrasts markedly with that held by arch rival Microsoft. With its recent release of the Windows Vista operating system -- complete with a desktop footprint that significantly exceeds that of Windows XP -- and new, feature-packed Office applications, Microsoft has signaled its belief that the PC will play a central role in business computing for years to come."
