Microsoft and IT services firm LogicaCMG have teamed up to dish out their own version of The Factory.

But don’t worry, they haven’t gone all 1960s, artsy-fartsy Warholian on you, it’s just a bit of marketing spin from the software mammoth and its "strategic" partner LogicaCMG.

Dubbed the Service Factory, the new program has been created to quickly punt Microsoft’s Connected Services Framework product onto the telecoms market.

The firm has even added a 2.0 figure on the end of the word Telco to prove how serious this new partnership really is.

Financial terms were not disclosed, so don’t expect to see silkscreen dollars hanging in a gallery near you anytime soon.
