Cloud computing is the unheralded hero at CES 2020

David Linthicum

I’m speaking at CES 2020 this year. This is the first non-cloud-focused event I’ve attended in years, and I’m looking forward to learning about new things. What strikes me though is that this is actually a cloud event in disguise. Although cloud is certainly a topic at CES , I’m not sure that those who are attending and exhibiting understand how foundational public cloud computing is to the success of almost all consumer-focused electronic devices.

Your excess server resources are wanted in the cloud

David Linthicum

Although not a new concept, we are now looking at the opportunity for those who have private servers with excess capacity to rent that capacity to a cloud service provider that can dole out those compute and storage systems on demand to anyone who needs them. If you’re thinking ride-sharing for servers, you’re not far off. In this scenario the cloud service provider is really just a broker sitting between those needing cloud services and those who have servers that can be shared.

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.

But they didn’t do it themselves — behind them were leaders as committed to disruption as they were. And whether the product was the iPhone or something else, this ethos permeated the entire executive committee. It isn’t surprising that CEOs are eager to lead change within their own industries.

Speaker: Alex Rasmussen, CEO, Bits on Disk

If you want to make your development team squirm, ask them about database schema changes or API versioning. Most development teams struggle with changing database schemas and updating API versions without breaking existing code. Alex Rasmussen is an expert in helping teams through these struggles. His talk will examine database schema changes and API versioning as two instances of schema evolution: how your systems respond when the structure of your structured data changes.
