Last year has been very rich in term of news for the IT industry. We have launched System Center 2012, Windows Server 2012, SQL 2012 and just before the end of the year Windows Intune. Those three products are creating the foundation for a shift in the IT. Those product are the critical building blocks for the "Cloud", no matter if it is a Private Cloud (running on your premises) or a Public Cloud (running on Microsoft premises for example) or a mix of them with a Hybrid Cloud.

2013 will be a very exciting year from the Datacenter perspective ! We will see this cloud transformation become more and more a reality. We will soon have the Service Pack 1 for System Center 2012 that will bring amongst other capabilities the support of Windows Server 2012 (more on this in the coming days) and Windows Azure will integrate seamlessly with our existing datacenters.

For the moment, enjoy the beginning of the year and see you soon in your country !
