Case study Who is the shadowy City of London Corporation? Actually it is not shadowy at all, it's the City's local government.

In our latest Future of Productivity podcast Adam Hand tells Tim Phillips how the City of London Corporation helped TheCityUK, a non-profit organisation that promotes UK financial services, to migrate its applications from a standard LAN to Microsoft's cloud-based BPOS service.

Adam guides us through bumps in the road he encountered, and how he overcame them.

Is the cloud useful only for big companies? On this evidence, not so.
