News agency Reuters expects to save over £1m a year by replacing classroom-based training with e-learning. The company is rolling out Oracle's iLearning management system as part of a self-service strategy based on Oracle technology. Currently 4,000 staff have access to e-learning, including business and desktop application skills training.

New IBM chairman Sam Palmisano is gambling $10bn (£6.4bn) on businesses buying computing power ‘on demand’ like gas or electricity. He claimed that the company had spent $10bn on making its ‘pay as you go’ products and services available to customers so they can meet their needs without large investments in new hardware and staff.
