Did you know. It’s IoT all the way throughout April over at www.cloudcredential.org – and did you know about International IoT day?
No … well put April 9th in your diary and online planner. More news to follow on how the CCC is supporting International IoT Day 2019 because last year was such a success they want to make this year an even better success.
April is #IoT month at CCC and they are kicking it off by offering a 50% discount on the CCC Internet Of Things Foundation Self-Study with promo code CCC-IOTF-2019-50.
Today, technology training is still very important, as digital technologies continue to change and evolve.
What is less recognised is; upskilling IT professionals to deliver value form digital technologies is a necessity yet remains a significant gap and often overlooked.
Focusing on the technology alone will not deliver digital success, digital innovation or digital value.
It will only deliver new technology.
So, ask yourself one simple question.
RU Digital Ready? … in the context of delivering digital value.
It’s an experiment. A global one (hopefully). And it has meaning. #Cloud #Digital #Ready #Digitaltransformation
Over the coming days, I am reaching out to my entire global network via many channels – email, social, phone (old tech I know), conversation, word-of-mouth etc… – you get the picture.
I would like to know the answer to one simple question. It’s not a trick question. It’s not a gimmick. It’s not a marketing ploy. We don’t do those.
I ask you to let me know. Either respond to this post in a comment or contact me via email, phone, social etc. but please let me know.
Also, please share this question with your network. I am genuinely looking for genuine answers… no strings attached. So, I will keep the question simple – let’s see what comes back!
Do you believe that you are ready, enabled and educated enough to deal with this new digital world and the effects of digital transformation?
Join Peter Hubbard a Principle ITSM Consultant at Pink Elephant and Mark O'Loughlin the Managing Director of the Cloud Credential Council as we explore how ITSM is affected by cloud computing.
Cloud computing brings many business benefits ranging from increased cost efficiencies, business agility, improved use of resources, reduction of operational issues and capital expense but it also brings many challenges to address. How can ITSM ensure that cloud services are managed and deliver real business benefit for their organisations?
Successful cloud adoption can enhance economic growth and have significant industry impact across the economy, but unsuccessful cloud adoption can open the organisation up to potential data breeches, cloud sprawl and loss of control.
In this webinar Peter and Mark discuss how to avoid the lack of control that blights many cloud adoptions in the digital era.

The last number of years has seen an explosion in the popularity and adoption of the DevOps movement and its ways. I have had various dealings with 'things of a DevOps nature' through a number of different opportunities, channels and requests.
One thing which has always struck me is how challenging it can be, and still is, for organisations to adopt DevOps ways into their work practices. Some commentators I come across claim this is madness and DevOps just works for all organisations, large and small. it just makes sense, it delivers real value and … (so forth).
I agree with all of the benefits of DevOps. I agree organisations need to look at DevOps and see where it will (not can) add value. I will not argue against that. However, I also see many organisations struggling to adopt DevOps and adapt current ways of working to fit the ways / principles / philosophies / cultural aspects of DevOps. In other cases I see DevOps in use – but in an isolated manner, not integrated into the end-to-end IT workings. So not true DevOps in-place. Perhaps more of a DevAgile-With-The-Same-Old-Ops kind of approach.
Anyway – back to organisations struggling to adopt DevOps. Are these organisations becoming the CounterCULTURE of DevOps? Why not, what with the rise of DevOps and ongoing relegation of lower velocity IT organisations.
Posting initial thoughts for now- I will come back to The CounterCULTURE of DevOps shortly.
