I'm going with the Germans... but I go with that side every World Cup.  But looking forward to some colorful LR banter leading up to the US/England group stage match. JB

Weel, Portugal stand a chance if Ronaldo is on fire - thet guy can win games by himself. But Portugal is in a tough opening group with Brazil.


 


Spain and Argentina are also in with a shout but again they have key players that will need to be fit and playing well -- Torres and Messi respectively.


 


As per the suggestions on our video - I don't think Poland will be lifting any silverware this summer (nice one Lucas) and as for the Ohio State Buckeyes, well... what is it they do?


I notice the Scandinavian's are all choosing Brazil....

The Swedes go for Brazil not because they are glory hunters, oh no. It's because they both wear yellow. There's a natural affinity.


Of the second-tier teams, people in the office are thinking Holland has a reasonable  chance. Mainly because Sneijder, Robben, and Van Persie, is a pretty good front three. And of course Van der Sar in goal.

Looks like Heavy Reading has once again identified an important trend, this one in world sport:

When your goalkeeper says he is "safeguard[ing] the gates to the fatherland," you have to feel confident that your team will be playing as though their survival depends on victory.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
