    2023

    2023

    2022 was suppose to be a year of rebounding from the depths of Covid however it didn't exactly turn out as planned... 2023 will be an interesting year for the tech industry with various changes and challenges to navigate, but that shouldn't scare us!

    This episode discusses in short, some of the challenges and difficulties of what is to come in 2023. I also touch on the impact of a AI on the economy and how Elon Musk has changed things forever, with his Twitter takeover. The episode also mentions the importance of virtualization and the hybrid cloud in the tech industry and the increase in adoption of multi-cloud strategies and a little peak into what's in store in my work at Veeam Software while citing a quote from Rocky Balboa.

    ChatGPT and the Excitement and Danger of AI

    ChatGPT and the Excitement and Danger of AI

    It's not often that a technology comes along that fundamentals changes and challenges the fundamentals of what it is to be human. 

    That isn't something said lightly, but the capability of this platform from Open.AI is already well ahead of anything the general internet population has ever come across when it comes to AI. How does this technology in play impact what we perceive to be real and not real... how does it impact content creation and learning. Have we created everything that needs creating to create every ever more?

    #ChatGPT has arrived! And with it, possibly one of the most important moments in human history?

    AWS re:Invent 2022

    AWS re:Invent 2022

    AWS are the public cloud kings! To that there is almost no doubt... but are they the panacea?

    There is a new normal around Hybrid and Multiple Clouds for organizations to consider. Going all into one platform or cloud isn't seen to be the correct strategy, however AWS culture is predicated on them being the only destination for applications and workloads moving forward. I share some thoughts around this and how AWS still (and will) needs to continue to innovate and evolve, and what I am looking forward to at this years 10th AWS re:Invent.

    Elon Bursting The Tech Bubble

    Elon Bursting The Tech Bubble

    No, it isn't 1999 all over again... this is a different sort of bubble being burst! 

    This one was built on high velocity valuations and investments off the back of a sustained tech run for the best part of ten years? And while that's been positive and lead to many great innovative companies and technologies... it's also bred a culture of entitlement and an expectation that the good times will keep on rolling. With covid leading to massive inflation and other geo-political pressures, Elon Musk's brutal take over of Twitter has put everyone in Silicon Valley on notice...they layoffs are here... it's time for a reset... and that's probably a good thing!

    Multiple Cloud Theory

    Multiple Cloud Theory

    What is Multiple Cloud Theory?

    In this episode I give some thoughts on hybrid vs multi cloud and what that actually means in todays IT landscape. In a world where we are told that vendor lock-in is bad, that is exactly what we have at the cloud platform level today as hybrid cloud is embraced. That's not a bad thing... it's just the way it is.
