Life/Work balance – BitTitan case study video

While living in Seattle last year with my family the team at BitTitan created a video case study about myself and Paradyne to showcase how easy their technologies allow you to migrate to the cloud from wherever you are – and ultimately work from wherever you are.

On a personal note I am thrilled that this video was created as it gave me a platform to share my views on living a life/work balance and how cloud can enable us to wrap our work around our family lives (not the other way around).

Office 365 to be hosted in Australia in early 2015

This morning Microsoft released their plans to make Office 365 and Dynamics CRM available from Australian datacentres. This follows the same pattern as in Japan recently – where an Azure datacentre was lit up and not long afterwards a similar announcement was made.

Having Office 365 hosted locally is an exciting step as there are still many businesses, organisations and government agencies not ready to move to the platform due to data sovereignty or latency reasons. With the news that Office 365 will be hosted onshore by the end of March 2015 the lists of reasons gets even smaller.
