Telstra has announced the latest partnership for its T-Suite SaaS platform, adding Jamcracker to deliver on-demand business applications under the T-Suite brand.

The partnership will see Telstra use the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network (JSDN), a completely outsourced SaaS channel enablement platform, to provide IP services and Jamcracker-provided SaaS applications bundled with Telstra’s existing T-Suite services.

Jamcracker vice-president, Steve Crawford, said that by tying into the JSDN, Telstra could simultaneously supply on-demand applications directly to SMBs and provide easy to set-up Web stores that enable its channel of agents and resellers to make click-through sales.

Telstra customers will be able to mix and match the new application services with their voice, data and Internet access services. T-Suite is initially offering security and collaboration applications for SMBs ahead of its full scale launch early next year. Telstra has been mum on the details but said it is in active talks with more than 50 software providers.

Services include security offerings from McAfee and MessageLabs, online backup from Iron Mountain, Hosted Exchange messaging and Sharepoint collaboration services from Microsoft, and Microsoft Dynamics hosted CRM.

Telstra has made several partnership announcements in recent weeks, including forging an alliance with Microsoft to revamp Windows mobile and deliver cloud-based unified communications services.

Analysts at Gartner say the current economic downturn is sparking increased interest in SaaS.

The T-Suite portfolio of on-demand application services is available now.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
