In my previous post, I discussed the evolving enterprise cloud landscape and how the conversation in IT departments has shifted from “why cloud” to “which cloud.” There’s no question that businesses want secure and simple access to cloud-native services such as AI, data and analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), and a serverless infrastructure. And they […]
As I was leaving our local movie theater on a recent day out with my family, my daughter noticed that I looked annoyed. She asked what was wrong. I decided not to say what I was really thinking: that’s two hours and $30 we’d never get back. This made me think about all the other […]
You’ve heard this before, especially if you’re a chief information officer: deploying workloads and applications in a cloud infrastructure can help reduce costs, free up resources to drive innovation and streamline critical processes. But if you need to demonstrate value sooner rather than later, cloud deployment might not always be the best choice for every […]

During a recent client engagement, a banking client put forth a requirement that, as they reorganize their IT environment by setting up a hybrid cloud, the new model should allow for contestability of public cloud services. They desired the ability to switch to those services which are superior (or “best of breed”) from a functional […]
For me, strawberries and chocolate are foods that are good by themselves or together (my apologies to those who have food allergies and can’t enjoy them!). They complement each other in a wonderful way, and I think the same is true of big data and cloud. It is undeniable that there has been a large […]
If you already have IBM Power servers in your data centers and you’re running your workloads on this platform, you are probably well aware of its Oscar-winning performance.
