    Accenture - certified brain dead

    Now, Microsoft’s consulting partner Accenture and its subsidiary Avanade – a joint venture formed between the two companies in 2000 – joins Fujitsu in the Azure cloud.

    Adam Warby, Avanade chief executive, said in a statement about the Windows Azure agreement: “With more certified Windows Azure architects than any other Microsoft partner, coupled with our unique insights and innovation and integrated global delivery capabilities, we are able to help organisations quickly migrate to Windows Azure and realise business results faster.”

      Fixed it for you...

      Adam Warby, Avanade chief executive, said in a statement about the Windows Azure agreement: coupled with our unique insights in how to boost Ãĉĉěńţūřė's profit margins and innovation in creating ways to keep you locked to Ãĉĉěńţūřė and integrated global customer invoice delivery capabilities, we are able to help organisations quickly migrate to Windows Azure and realise business results for Ãĉĉěńţūřė faster.

      I'd view that announcement in the same way as hearing that Josef Fritzl has opened a crèche.

    To be fair...

    ... Accenture aren't quite as daft as they look here.

    M$ puts up the money, M$ pays Accenture to build stuff to suck punters into Azure, fails, punters never arrive, M$ soaks up the big loss, Accenture still makes a profit.
