Geva Perry is an enterprise software and cloud computing expert and blogger. His popular blog is called Thinking Out Cloud where we writes about Cloud, the grid, and "Everything-as-a-service."
I had the opportunity to sit down with Geva over a Skype call and talk about the current state of the Cloud. I really enjoyed the conversation since there was a focus on what it takes to make the Cloud work today . We ended up talking for over 20 minutes so I split the conversation into two parts. Here's the first half:
Here's what we cover in part 1 of Thinking Out Cloud with Geva Perry:
- "It's happening now" - what are all the challenges and strategies to address
- The business case for the Cloud - from cost savings to business agility
- The operational challenges of Cloud computing
- "The CIO doesn't matter" - democratization of IT (link to Forbes article)
Will post the second half of the conversation tomorrow.
