Microsoft Is Steadily Advancing Towards The Holy Grail Of Cloud Computing



A few days ago Microsoft (MSFT) presented its new Xbox named "Xbox One". However in this article I'm not going to talk to you about the console. I'm going to talk to you about something bigger, the foundations of which were completed with the launch of the Xbox One. I'm talking about a project that Microsoft is working on for quite some time and that is slowly but steadily coming to fruition.


This phrase is the core of what Microsoft is creating. A truly universal across-devices platform. Every device we have from watches and smartphones to PCs to TVs will operate within the same ecosystem, the same apps, the same programs, the same interface. In this platform you will be able to access all your apps, programs, files, media from any device without any limitation other than the size of the screen you are using.

Lockheed Martin Expands Cloud Computing Services For UK Government




Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) UK has expanded its range of cloud computing services available to government customers to include IT service integration and management, known as SIAM in the UK.


SIAM enables UK government departments to deliver seamless, end-to-end IT services in a multi-vendor sourcing model. To effectively manage the multi-vendor environment, SIAM is often required to provide architecture design support, service desk implementation and rigorous reporting of management information related to the service. Lockheed Martin UK offers these services through the G-Cloud 3 framework agreement, which succeeds the previous G-Cloud 2 program.

"We are applying our strong cyber security expertise to ensure secure cloud computing and help governments realize cost-savings and efficiencies from the use of advanced technologies," said Vicki Schmanske, vice president of information technology and security solutions for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions. "Our inclusion in G-Cloud 3 will strengthen the corporation's IT service activities across the broader UK public sector."


The company will support G-Cloud 3 through its Solutions-as-a-Service (SolaS®) secure cloud delivery platform. This mission-focused approach to cloud computing combines best-in-industry partnerships, IT domain expertise and advanced technology and innovation to deliver private, community and hybrid cloud offerings for many U.S. and international customers. SolaS offers government organizations the opportunity to outsource computing and storage, e-mail and collaboration, cloud strategy and integration; cyber security; green IT and energy optimization; cloud brokering; virtualization consulting; and virtual desktop infrastructure for delivery of critical managed IT services.





A thought leader in cloud computing, Lockheed Martin has been very involved in shaping standards across the industry. As a government cloud provider, Lockheed Martin will be among the first companies, in the U.S., to receive FedRAMP authorization this spring for its SolaS Secure Community Cloud solution. This will validate Lockheed Martin's strong cloud security practices and reassure federal agencies as they move to the cloud. To see the full range of Lockheed Martin's cloud, visit http://www.lockheedmartin.com/us/what-we-do/information-technology/cloud.html


Lockheed Martin is the leading provider of IT services to the U.S. federal government and in the UK, Lockheed Martin was the IT prime contractor for the 2011 Census.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 118,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products, and services. The Corporation's net sales for 2012 were $47.2 billion.

Kingfisher Airlines Ltd (KFA) EVP Hitesh Patel will leave soon ?



Kingfisher Airlines (KFA) promoter Dr Vijay Mallya's assurances of restarting the grounded airline now seem to be running thin even with his old associates. KFA executive vice-president Hitesh Patel, who joined Mallya nine years ago and was instrumental in the airline's launch in 2005, has put in his papers. Patel was also active in meetings with the directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) and talking to prospective investors after airline was grounded last October.


Mr Hitesh Patel is returning home to New York and will take a much-needed break before resuming work elsewhere. It was not easy facing the ire of employees and scores of other agencies, who have not been paid for months," said sources.

It is learnt that Patel stuck to the airline when the management was talking to investors but when nothing seemed to materialize, he decided to call it a day.

"The Diageo deal took way too long to be of any help to restarting KFA. Even at this moment, the airline management is talking to an investor. But nothing has materialized," said sources.

In recent weeks, even DGCA chief Arun Mishra has started refusing appointments to the airline's management.
