IBM: Top 10 Tips for Migrating Your ECM System to the CloudIBM:

That’s huge,” Pelz-Sharpe said. “Even things that seemed simple — time and expense claims forms, accounts payable, contract management — today you need to go out to multiple vendors to get that done. Microsoft’s basically saying, ‘Here’s all the tools, you can do that.’ That’s going to rock the market.”
