Cloud spending set to outpace traditional on-prem

David Linthicum

According to IDC, in 2019 the public cloud saw little change in market share, making up just more than 30 percent of the overall cloud IT infrastructure market. Of course, this is likely to grow significantly, expected to reach almost 40 percent by 2023. However, it’s a bit of a surprise that IDC is also expecting public and private cloud spending to outperform “traditional IT spending” in 2020. We can define traditional as anything that’s not a private or public cloud.

The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, CTO, Mago:Tech

As senior tech leaders, we often fall prey to thinking that a “good idea” and logical case is sufficient to get the desired response and result. We might be trying to get our CEO on-board with investment in a new technology or a rearchitecture effort, or we might want culture or process changes by our team. Our “good idea” is simply the beginning. An idea must be communicated; a case must be made; and ultimately other people must be persuaded to get onboard. Michael Carducci brings a fascinating background to this webinar. He’s a technologist and regularly works to help senior leaders improve their results. He’s also a professional mentalist and has been a student of psychology, human behavior and the principles of influence for nearly two decades.
