I’m really excited to be kicking off a four-part webinar series generally themed around Executive’s Guide to Cloud Computing.
Today’s webinar starts at 2 pm EDT / 11 am PDT, and we’ll be posting a recording soon after the completion.
There has been a significant amount of exciting news brewing in our world, and I can’t wait to share some of it in the days, weeks, and months to come. So as a bit of an initial down payment, we’re going to go have some fun on this first webinar in the new series.
We’d be honored to have you join us!
Now that the bulk of the writing is winding down on the cloud book, I’m really happy to turn some attention to this blog (among many other things, most – like this – neglected far too much for far too long).
For all sorts of reasons we (Appistry) decided to move individual blogs away from the company umbrella. Sam Charrington will explain things fairly soon (though not yet), and I’ll point to that once posted.
But I guess the whole self-organizational roots run very deep in our collective culture, so most of us have already gotten started.
As you may have surmised this is my new blogging home, and more or less like moving into a new home there’s a lot of excitement, most of my stuff is in the new place, but with one practical problem …
… it’s mostly all still in boxes.
Oh well, enough is unpacked to get started
In the weeks and months to come I intend to be far more active in this space, covering a wide range of topics – from the latest in cloud computing technologies, competition, and most importantly to all of us in the business, real use cases, to speculation on what’s possible and perhaps what’s slowing progress.
Right now I think I’ll pay particular attention to the profound business implications of this whole transformation. Of course, along those lines I’ll also explore certain topics covered in the cloud book in more detail, perhaps examining topics from angles not yet considered, or considering developments in light of the principles laid down in the book.
I think I’ll go ahead and host the microsite for the book in this domain as well, but that’s still a month or so out.
One Last Thing
If you like what you see and it’s worth your time, please pass it along. If you think I’m “on crack” and would be better off doing … well just about anything else, as long as it doesn’t involve computers … then let’s buy a beer and begin arguing.
But no matter where you come down on my particular point of view, one thing is really beyond debate – cloud computing is real, it is probably the most significant technological shift in at least a decade, and it is beginning to happen fairly broadly right now, even as we sit here and cogitate.
So to paraphrase one of my all-time favorite ad tag-lines, let’s stop talking and just do it.
