A mainframe-based cloud service
As an industry analyst, it feels like I spend hours of my life sitting through the same old cloud, mobile, social and big-data stuff from IT vendors. Sure, the world is changing and technology is developing – you’d have to live under a rock not to know that. But once a marketeer gets that clicker in his or her hand, there’s no stopping them telling you all about it again. So you sit through the obligatory five to 10 slides on industry trends, waiting for them to get to the point and tell you what, exactly, they are offering to customers.
