Competition to win six months of application hosting
Microsoft consultancy Avanade has launched a competition for UK businesses to win £100,000-worth of cloud hosting on the Windows Azure platform.
The competition, called the Cloud Advantage, requires companies to submit their business plan for an innovative cloud-based application, detailing the business benefits and innovative elements. The winner will receive up to 10 weeks of delivery resource, two weeks of project management, and six months of application hosting on Azure from early 2011.
Entrants need to detail the opportunity the project presents for the organisation, including expected benefits, solutions required, how Azure would be used, and a risk assessment.
The competition is open to any non-governmental UK company and closes on 29 October 2010. The winner will be announced on 30 November.
