Service Provider Views - Microsoft and the Telcos, Part 2

My latest Service Provider Views column on TMCnet is now running. This article continues the theme from my previous article which explores why I believe Microsoft and service providers need each other.

Things got a bit complicated while writing Part 2, given Microsoft's recent announcement they are abandoning their Connected Services Framework initiative. That certainly changes the equation, but I still contend there's an important symbiotic relationship for both parties.

You'll just have to read it for yourself and let me know if I'm on or off target!
