Oracle and Microsoft Expected To Announce Cloud Service Partnership On Monday
It's a strange collaboration, for sure. A few years ago, these two were seen as rivals. But given that Microsoft has been oddly late to the cloud, linking up with another giant might be necessary to stay on top of things. The advent of the Internet, coupled with rapidly changing expectations in the market place, has left Microsoft grasping for straws in some areas (see also: Windows Phone and the overall mobile market share battle).
We'll have to wait until next week to see how exactly the two plan to play together, but one thing's for sure: if this goes down, it's certainly a sign of the times.
