Lean, Kanban, Agile Pairing, TDD (sometimes test after) software architect and programmer. Worked with distributed (called cloud sometimes) computing services since 2007 using phat data (8 billion rows of data on an AVERAGE day, sometimes called big data) and everything from business intelligence to the nitty gritty of array structures inside file based data stores to create caching tiers for custom software needs. Currently pushing for distributed technologies & improving software architecture, better data centers, the best software development practices and keeping everything secure in the financial industry again.

One response to “Day #3 => DeployCon && Enterprise && Data Gravity”

    The event was great and the people brilliant. However, one interesting aspect of Cloud vs Enterprise is that at the end of the day, the Cloud people all went off by themselves and left those of us on the buy side alone (sniff). When I attend an EMC event, EMC people attach themselves to me at every opportunity and develop relationships with people who might actually buy their products. While I think Cloud is disruptive, I don’t think it’s disruptive enough to ignore customers with real money to spend. I don’t mind being snubbed, but it’s only human to want to buy solutions from people who make you feel important. Cloud vendors need to realize that technology alone will not disrupt legacy vendors.
