Cloud Architect Forum – Slides Now Available

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Matt‘s just posted all the slides from the Cloud Architect forum on September 25th.

There’s some great content here and some good food for thought (especially from Neil Ward-Dutton – who presented the best high level summary of “just what exactly _is_ the cloud” that I’ve seen to date).

I’ll be turning my session into this month’s podcast so keep a look out for that.

Cloud Architect Forum

Friday, August 28th, 2009

dataMatt recently invited me to provide a session for the Cloud Architect Session he is going to run in London on September 25th.

He’s already got some great speakers lined up – Neil Ward-Dutton from MW Advisors, Simon Guest, Senior Director, DPE (Microsoft) and Andrew Jones, Practice Director from CSC.

Attendance is free (limited to first come, first served) and you can register here.

FWIW – this was the overview I gave Matt for my talk:

“Cloud Computing is being positioned as the future of the IT Industry, yet we collectively seem to be unsure on what it actually is and, more importantly, how to get from here to there. This session will attempt to reconnect us all with the longer term reasons on why the cloud is not just important but fundamental to the kind of transformation we are looking technology to provide the way we live, work and play.”

All I need to do now is come up with the slides to match…
