BriefingsDirect Analysts Take Microsoft's Pulse: Will the Software Giant Peak in Next Few Years? Welcome to the latest BriefingsDirect Insights Edition, Vol. 32, a periodic discussion and dissection of software, services, SOA and compute cloud-related news and events, with a panel of IT analysts. In this episode, recorded Oct. 24, 2008, our experts examine the state of Microsoft at the onset of the annual Professional Developers Conference. Two narratives emerge from the roundtable discussion, that Microsoft is behind on many new IT trends and is tied to past business models, and opposing is the view that Microsoft will ride business intelligence, data services, and cloud computing to become bigger and more pervasive than ever. Please join noted IT industry analysts and experts Jim Kobielus, senior analyst at Forrester Research; Tony Baer, senior analyst at Ovum Research; Dave Linthicum, independent SOA consultant at Linthicum Group; Brad Shimmin, principal analyst at Current Analysis; Mike Meehan, a senior analyst at Current Analysis, and Joe McKendrick, independent analyst and prolific blogger. Our discussion is hosted and moderated by BriefingDirect's Dana Gardner. Read a transcript of the podcast: Charter sponsor: Active Endpoints.
