MCPs with Their Heads in the Cloud
Cloud-based services is not a cash cow for Microsoft by a long shot. But Microsoft is hedging its bets there, getting a bit more aggressive in its pricing to stay competitive among strong alternative offerings. It has to, because even Microsoft knows OS and server and Office suite sales aren't what they used to be, especially with a myriad of viable choices out there, many of which are free and enterprise-scalable.
As more services head to the cloud, where does that leave MCPs? It's tough out there as it is, so will the cloud mean fewer opportunities or jobs, or will this open new doors? And if you're ever the optimist, what kinds of opportunities are there? I'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
