The plane was delayed an hour and a half leaving Madrid. The captain announced "we now have a plane that works", that’s always worrying. Madrid was interesting went out for Tapas which was good, the food always taste better than the Spanish food that you get in the UK. The IBM location was interesting, it had piped music for Christmas and a place to smoke in the main corridor!
The Spanish Telecoms Market is interesting, customers still don’t believe IBM is in networking, which it is in a big way. So I’ll be speaking to our VP for Networking and letting him know my thoughts on the region. Telefonica has everything stitched up and acts like a monopoly…ie everything takes ages to sort out.
