That's tomorrow night sorted then.
Channel 4 have announced that on Tuesday 24th December fans of 'The IT Crowd' will be treated to another viewing of this year's special, a new behind-the-scenes documentary and the chance to watch some of the show's most popular episodes. As always, Matt Berry will steal the show as Douglas and we'll see those fantastic cameos from Jon Snow and Noel Fielding again! The IT Crowd Manual will be narrated by Stephen Mangan and will feature interviews...

64% of organisations consider themselves to be maturing in terms of cloud adoption.  But only 19% of organisations prefer a public cloud approach.  As 72% of organisations will adopt a multi-vendor approach and the biggest drivers being cost and time-to-market; I don't many of these organisations are as close to maturing as they think.

By January 2014 I predict a higher uptake of public cloud, with most organisations realising that a small number of cloud suppliers\vendors both private and public is best.  And a realisation that their level of maturity isn't as high as they originally thought.
