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?

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.

Please Remember to Read the Contract.

The cohort of professionals who have attended my personal Professional Cloud Service Manager (PCSM) training sessions will have been taught a very simple lesson in this new digital / cloud world. And it is this simple lesson – READ THE CONTRACT…

… or else you might be surprised at a later date what terms and conditions you signed up to. And the below example is related to just public Wi-Fi.
