Ozzie Lays SaaS Talk on Thick

For those of you wondering just what Microsoft's software as a service -- or even Software Plus Services -- strategy might involve, Ray Ozzie spelled things out in fairly good detail last week.

This is one of those times when we'd like for you to take a look at what Ozzie said (yes, that means clicking the link) and tell us how you, as a partner, think you can fit into this strategy. We're reading over this carefully ourselves, but we're going to hold off on any commentary until we hear from you. So step up and let us know how SaaS-y you plan to get with Redmond in the months and years to come.

Where's the partner opportunity in Microsoft's layers of SaaS? Let me know at [email protected].
