Two independent analysts who have contributed an unvarnished voice of pragmatism to the cloud conversation are Ben Kepes of Diversity Limited and Krishnan Subramanian of Rishidot. They’ve made a name for themselves in providing points of view that everyone might not always agree with, but everyone respects because they bring thoughtful analysis and clarity to a space that’s often obfuscated.
Ben and Krish have taken a bold step, and we at Cloudscaling are happy to help them. They’ve launched a one-day event focused on perturbing the steady-state system of cloud thought leadership by going beyond vendor stories and cloudwashed application profiles to think about questions that matter to cloud buyers going forward.
Check out the agenda, and apply to attend. If you’re coming to Las Vegas for Interop, it’ll be easy enough to join in, and it should be well worth your time.
