System Center without Live Maps is like.. A clock without hands, a hamburger without meat, a girl without a mirror and many other things. In the last two months almost 1.000 people took the time and created their very own version of this comparison and at the same time found information on why we believe that Live Maps is the perfect companion to Microsoft System Center.
Apart from entering the competition online, we invited the visitors at MMS2013 to enter the same competition at our booth. In only a few hours we had more than 300 entries for this comparison with some very creative answers. The overall winner and winner of the Surface RT was Mike Callehan of UCF with his entry: System Center without Live Maps is like a Comedian without Jokes. We also had a few lucky folks who found their comparison in print and visualized on their limited edition t-shirts. Curious how they looked? Click here.
We have just closed the online contest and again we were impressed with all the creative entries. Great minds think alike so we did receive a number of the same creative entries. When picking those, we decided to draw a winner who will get the t-shirt. That said we have unanimously voted that only one was the best of the bunch and the lucky winner of the Surface RT. Congratulations to Juraj Sucik of CERN with his entry: System Center without Live Maps is like the Earth without Sun.
The winners of the personalized t-shirts are:
Tom Laffery, Devon Energy Corporation – A Keyboard without Keys
Gregory Hindman, XO Communications – Skydiving without a Parachute
Pete Le Maistre, Hawksford – A Time Machine without a Flux Capacitor
Miquel Felida, Consein – Cereal without Milk
Frank Jones, Hagerty – A Rainbow without Colors
Bob Cornelissen, BICTT – A Tree without Leaves
David Bruem, Deloitte Ireland – A Superhero without Special Powers
