Telstra and the “cloud”

Filed under: Evil people — hayesjupe @ 6:47 am

Poor old Telstra – “investing” 1 billion in the cloud because they know a number of their other revenue streams are disappearing and others (such as mobile) will continue to face very strong competition.

Its interesting that over the past few months, for our clients at least, the cloud has gone from “we’re going to look at it and will evaluate cloud services” to “yer, we wont be using that thanks”….. whether it be security issues, control issues or simply the immaturity of services offer in the cloud, this buzz word bullshit seems to have lost its interest already.

As far as Telstra – (semi) privitatising this dinosaur is one of the best things any Australian government has ever done – its just a pity the do-gooders got in the way and stopped the complete privitisation. (granted – structural and retail seperation needed to happen first) – now at least only half of the companies stupid decision to throw away this billion will affect me – yay 🙂
