Microsoft adore le Cloud Computing ! Message officiel de Steve Ballmer.


Microsoft Cloud is great 4 En écrivant il y a quelques jours mon dernier texte sur «pourquoi Microsoft voue une haine viscérale au Cloud Computing» qui a déclenché de nombreux commentaires enflammés, je ne savais vraiment pas que Steve Ballmer, CEO de Microsoft allait animer une conférence sur le Cloud Computing, pour proclamer le grand amour de Microsoft pour le Cloud !

Il l’a fait, le 4 mars 2010, à l’Université de Washington, qui est très proche de Microsoft, géographiquement que culturellement.


Steve : sa déclaration d’amour pour le Cloud Computing

Vidéo Ballmer Je n’avais jamais entendu Steve Ballmer prononcer aussi souvent le mot Cloud dans un discours ; plus d’une centaine de fois !

La vidéo de cette présentation est disponible (si vous avez Silverlight installé).

Si vous avez 1h30 disponible, vous pouvez visualiser toute la vidéo.
Si vous êtes plus pressé, vous pouvez lire le compte rendu «live» fait par Ina Fred sur Cnet.com. A la fin de son résumé, il y a aussi un lien vers la même vidéo.

Je vous laisse décider si ce long discours représente un réel virage dans la stratégie de Microsoft.
A titre d’exemple, j’ai retenu deux phrases qui sont révélatrices de ce nouvel amour pour le Cloud :
«We are betting our company on the cloud» : Nous parions l’avenir de notre entreprise sur le Cloud.
«90 % des développeurs de Microsoft travaillent sur des projets qui, d'une façon ou d'une autre, ont un lien avec le Cloud.»

Ray Ozzie at Ballmer speech Il avait même invité Ray Ozzie, le Chief Software Architect de Microsoft, à assister à sa présentation, en faisant référence à son email qui, il y a cinq années, avait alerté Microsoft sur l’importance du Cloud.

Dans son discours, Steve a mis en évidence 5 éléments clefs du Cloud Computing. Je ne suis pas sûr d’avoir vraiment compris de quoi il parlait, mais je dois avoir du mal à comprendre sa position.
A vous de juger de la pertinence de cette démarche.


We are all in (Nous sommes dedans)

Were all in Logo Pendant que Steve Ballmer parlait, un nouveau site a été mis en ligne par Microsoft sur Microsoft Cloud Services.


Ce nouveau logo, ce nouveau message vont surement être très présents dans la communication de Microsoft des prochains mois.

Microsoft Web Site We are all in 2 Le message est à la fois puissant et simple : tous les produits de Microsoft sont dans le Cloud.

C’est un signe supplémentaire qui ne trompe pas ; Microsoft a vraiment compris que la décennie qui vient sera celle du Cloud.

C’est au moins un point sur lequel je suis tout à fait d’accord avec Microsoft !


Alors, qui croire ?

Love hate image Amour du Cloud comme le clame Steve Ballmer ?
Haine du Cloud comme je l’ai écrit ?

Difficile d’imaginer positions plus contrastées !

Ceci permettra, à tous ceux qui ont des convictions fortes sur le sujet, de trouver un point de vue qui conforte leur opinion.
Ceci permettra, à tous ceux qui sont perplexes sur la stratégie Cloud de Microsoft, d’avoir deux points de vue opposés, et de, peut-être, y voir plus clair.
