Microsoft’s new architectural strategy of Software + Services can enable a whole new world to the common people.
I am giving a simple scenario to explain this – A Coffee Shop
Normal Coffee Shop
a) You go with your friends to a coffee shop
b) Go to the self service counter and order for coffee and pay for the coffee .
c) Once your coffee is ready your name gets called and you get your coffee .
d) Then you continue chatting with your friends.
Coffee Shop running on Software + Services architecture
a) You sit along with your friends and the table has a digital menu .
b) You choose the type of coffee you want and confirm the order.
c) On confirmation the on screen display on your coffee table top asks for your mode of payment ; you enter your preferred mode of payment .
d) You receive a notification on your on screen display that your coffee is ready – you get up and bring your cup of coffee.
In the second example you have left your friends company one once , only to get the coffee.and have spent the majority of time with your friends .
If you were thinking that Software + Services were just an architecture then where does the digitized menu come from – enter surface computing .
