For the last hundred years, the desk phone has been a staple of every business.

Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today?

But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
