RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the SolutionsDevelopers Corporation announced the December session of its Technology Leadership Roundtable. SolutionsDevelopers welcomed Lewis Shepherd, Chief Technology Officer of Microsoft’s Institute for Advanced Technology in Governments, as the keynote speaker for the December meeting.
During the session, Lewis Shepherd spoke about the Microsoft cloud, and how Microsoft is spending $9.5 billion on research this year on the new paradigm of distributed computing. Earlier this week, Vivek Kundra, the Federal Chief Information Officer at the White House, announced deadlines for the federal government to become open, transparent, and participatory. Microsoft is responding to Kundra’s challenge with a wide range of initiatives, including Windows Azure, SharePoint Server 2010, and the Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS).
During the session, Mr. Shepherd discussed the flexibility that BPOS offers to customers that use Microsoft products. He mentioned Azure as a scalable hosting environment that allows federal and commercial organizations to take advantage of cloud computing. He also talked about how SharePoint 2010 allows for secure collaboration in a scalable environment.
“Lewis gave great insight on Microsoft’s vision to deliver technology that supports cloud computing,” said Chris Hornbecker, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of SolutionsDevelopers. “As a Gold Microsoft Partner, we are excited to be aligned with these innovative technologies, building a new breed of solutions around service oriented architectures.”
