Why workload-migration metrics get it wrong

David Linthicum

It can take anywhere from a day to two months to move a workload or application to the public cloud. This has been so tough to predict that a few niche consulting firms, public cloud providers, and thought leadership dudes (like me) think they can successfully model this within a few percentages of what it will actually cost and how long it will take. While this is a nice idea, the reality is that a few things can’t be easily modeled, such as bad application and data architecture.

2 reasons enterprises should look at Google Stadia

David Linthicum

Google just announced a new gaming platform…yes, Google. It’s called Stadia, and the short version is that it’s a thin-client cloud-only gaming system. It allows you to play games from Google as a cloud-based provider from most mobile, TV, or PC platforms—even those that are way underpowered. This without a gaming console sitting next to your TV or having to buy other hardware (well, perhaps a controller). Stadia works the way you think it would.

The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, Tech Leader, VUE Expert, and Full Stack Developer

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.
