Transitional Services: I’ve been writing and podcasting a lot about this lately. This concept came to me recently while thinking about the broader concept of migrations. A pain point for most organizations is the concept of migration. Transitional Services is a concept that layers the migration into an SaaS solution into the broader concept of making a migration simpler. Tons of postings on this so far:

IU Basketball: I am really looking forward to year two of Coach Crean. I lost interest in the team while the previous two coaches didn’t live up to the ideal of Indiana University. We have a long storied tradition and I am glad to see it’s coming back!
