An Ode to Cloud

It is Poetry Day Ireland today, so I thought I would get into the spirit of things.

An Ode to Cloud

There was a time; when clouds were near
rain would follow, soon to clear.
With resource-pooling; clouds grew bigger;
Self-serving themselves with a snigger.

The clouds you see race through the sky
meeting planes as they fly by.

Clouds of old just want to rain
on our heads and down the drain.
The dark grey clouds cast out the light,
while wispy ones they just take flight.

The clouds you see race through the sky
meeting planes as they fly by.

But when it’s dry and thirst arrives,
that is when things get contrived.
“Please just rain”; we command.
But alas; not on-demand.

The clouds you see race through the sky
meeting planes as they fly by.

Clouds today are internet bred.
A mix of public, private, hybrid.
Do clouds today seem less complex?
And more elastic when run on OPEX?

The clouds you see race through the sky
meeting planes as they fly by.

RU Digital Ready?

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.

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?

Webinar – Managing The Cloud In The Digital Era

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.
