We’re well into 2014 and it’s amazing to me that more organizations don’t have a clear cloud plan. Too many people are still confused or afraid of the “C” word.  But here’s the thing: There are real dangers in not having a cloud strategy, AKA a well-known cloud plan for your IT environment.  Every company should use cloud for something, but not necessarily everything!  The various general use cases for cloud computing are hopefully well-known by now.   End of the Hype Cycle The hype… Read More

Two major drivers for the adoption of cloud computing are its agility and ability to bring products in rapid time to market iterations. For the last decade, stretched-thin IT departments have increasingly found themselves in direct competition with "shadow IT" groups within their own company. Departments in the corporation were running their own IT infrastructure services in the cloud because they couldn’t wait nor rely on their own IT department. They viewed their IT organizations as slow to respond, and public cloud offerings as a… Read More

Get Some Popcorn and watch the war of the giants.  We are betting on AWS and I’ll tell you why… Cloud Price Cut Madness! It’s official; a cloud price war has broken out!

It is 25 years already!  Happy birthday to the World Wide Web!  Back in March of 1989, Sir Tim Berners-Lee proposed a system that made it possible to share computer information digitally using nodes and links, forming a "web" that eventually scaled worldwide, becoming what we now know as the internet. We love anniversaries, we mark seminal moments in history with this type of recognition, but often miss the big picture. Anniversaries are all around, the dawn of Google, the first Tweet ever, the dawn… Read More

7 Years of "Cloud Inflate-uation": For about seven years, the IT industry and its pundits have been infatuated with the "cloud" – specifically Amazon Web Services (AWS). Tech startups and their investors have flocked to AWS with inflated expectations on the notion that cloud economics were better than hosting applications themselves. After all, start-up resources are tight, agility is required, and any time not wasted on infrastructure management can be put toward business and product differentiation. It all makes sense, but start-ups and investors alike… Read More
