Don’t let AWS Re:Invent blind you to your real cloud needs

David Linthicum

I went to Amazon’s AWS Re:Invent trade show this week for the first time ever. It’s more of a place to meet people than to learn about what’s latest with Amazon Web Services these days, but AWS does a great job in updating the faithful on what’s new, what’s relevant, and what tech IT will be using in the next year. But you need to be careful about what you take back from these trade shows. They’re full of information and advice in service of the vendor’s agenda. Not yours.

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.
