Podcast episode 86: All about cloud

Public Cloud aka Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) plays a part in most roles within a business – ITAM, architects, finance, security, CFO, CIO etc. – and continues to grow in importance.

I talked to Damien Juillard, COO of, about some of the challenges posed by cloud and where we see it going over the next few years.
We had a really great conversation and touched on a wide range of topics including:

  • Recent cloud revenues across Tier 1 vendors
  • Oracle’s cloud focus
  • Amazon’s approach to technology
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Multi-cloud & hybrid-cloud
  • Cloud economics
  • Security
  • Home-schooling
  • Bring Your Own Licensing (BYOL)
  • Cloud technology on-premises

And still there was plenty more we didn’t get a chance to discuss!

I’d love to hear your thoughts and questions around cloud so please comment below or drop me an email/LinkedIn message 😁
