First Webjam—Impact of Cloud Computing on our job descriptions

You might not know this, but I co-chair the Cloud Governance Project within The Open Group—one of the many projects on the Cloud Work Group’s roster. Recently, the Cloud Work Group introduced the concept of a webjam—an informal way for members with a common interest to have an interactive brainstorm or debate—on a topic of their choice for some of its monthly sessions. The webjam is open to all members of the Cloud Work Group projects. Think of it as a panel discussion—except everyone on the call is part of the panel! I recently coordinated the first-ever webjam for our group. We used, "What will Cloud do to your resume?" as a topic.

Beginning my Journey to HP Discover in Frankfurt

I’m excited. In less than a week, I begin my journey to HP Discover in Frankfurt. I’m making sure I have taken care of everything I need to do to prepare. I have already discussed my upcoming presentation on the world's first technical cloud computing standard. The Open Group—the industry-leading group that released this standard—also published an article on their blog as well. I thought I was all set to go when Andy McCaskey of contacted me about recording a video focused on my presentation, so more people can look forward to the HP Discover conference.

It is only natural that IT has evolved to the Cloud

It is a sunny day after a recent thunderstorm.  I gaze up at the sky wondering if Mother Nature had IT in mind when designing the fascinating landscape across the blue sky that we simply refer to as – “The Cloud.”  I open up my e-mail and see this LinkedIn feed for an article Cloud Computing: Hey, Hey, You, You, Get Off of My Cloud! by Geoffrey Moore where he shows two images – one for the natural cloud and the other for the IT Cloud.  Moore’s characterization triggers me to contrast the two conceptually.

Discover the world’s first technical cloud computing standard for the second time

Have you heard of the first technical standard for Cloud Computing—SOCCI (pronounced saw-key)? Wondering what it stands for? Well, it stands for Service Oriented Cloud Computing Infrastructure. It is the technical standard that The Open Group developed early this year. HP, as a Platinum Member of The Open Group, has played a leadership role in the definition of this standard. I co-chaired this project and have represented this perspective on behalf of The Open Group on multiple analyst briefings and interviews. I will be presenting this standard for the second time at the HP Discover Conference in Frankfurt after having presented it at HP Discover in Las Vegas earlier this year.

Does Cloud Computing have the energy to process big data?

This can be broken down into three different questions:


  • Does Cloud Computing have the energy it needs?
  • Do you realize how much data is generated by energy consumption?
  • Can Big Data be effectively processed by the Cloud?

This post analyzes each question in greater detail.
