Now is the time to get serious about your cloud strategy

David Linthicum

IT loves its enterprise data centers. Who can blame IT? Data centers are LED light works of modern art these days. Indeed, I like visiting data centers just to enjoy how they are designed and watch the lights blink. The move away from enterprise data centers has been less aggressive than predicted.

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.
