EY Must Be Really Taken With These Microsoft Folks

Just last year the firm moves to Outlook and now a "strategic business alliance"? THE FUTURE HAS ARRIVED.

EY announced today a strategic business relationship with Microsoft Corp. to deliver new and innovative services through their digital-age strengths to companies around the world. The services will utilize EY's practices in analytics, cyber security, digital enterprise strategy, digital and emerging technology enablement, people services, and program management to deliver new offerings using Microsoft's cloud and data platforms.  The goal is to help customers remove barriers to digital adoption, improve employee experience at work, and maximize companies' return on their investment in digital technologies.

If you're keeping score at home, we have:

PwC + Google

Deloitte + Dell

EY + Microsoft

KPMG + McLaren Technology Group? Nuix

If you have suggestions for, or theories about, other accounting firm strategery partners, share below.

Microsoft and Yahoo Return to Shamelessly Flirting in Front of Everyone

In rumored merger talk news, apparently Microsoft and Yahoo have started playing footsie again which annoys the living crap out of us. According to Bits Blog:

A handful of top Microsoft executives are in Silicon Valley meeting with their Yahoo counterparts to try to iron out remaining wrinkles in a proposed partnership, according to people briefed on the talks who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity because the negotiations are confidential.

Get it over with you two! T. Boone Pickens isn’t cock-blocking anymore so you don’t have any excuses. We’d all really prefer if you just got down to biznass instead of flirting in front of everyone and then saying that you’re not interested in each other. Nobody is buying it.
