In 2014 I started publishing my series of “Tune into the Cloud” columns on the Gartner Blog Network, below some of the highlights so far:

Something Got Me Started – Tune into: the need for speed

  • On how time to market – enabled by ever more productive cloud platforms – is ruling the battle for cloud dominance, and how virtual servers are increasingly becoming table stakes when it comes to cloud competition.
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Thinking out (c)loud – Tune into: Cloud Migration?

  • On how  there may be considerable less love for “lift and shift” cloud migration than many in the industry may think.
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Price Tag – Tune into: cloud margins.

  • On how  margins in the cloud are not necessarily lower, but significantly different and why traditional vendors are having such a hard time coping with this.
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Cloud.forsale – Tune into: Cloud market Consolidation

  • On how the cloud market is transitioning to the next phase, pretty much exactly as visonairy Geoffrey Moore described it several decades ago in “Crossing the Chasm”
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Atlantic Crossing – Tune into: Building specific solutions, not generic technology

  • On how prior to (and arguably also during and after) market consolidation,  building specific solutions that address specific problems a is the only way to gain a viable share of the market.
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Hello World – Tune into: Coding

  • On how the next generation of workers to have any chance of a form of sustainable employment needs to move from “operating” to “instructing” computers
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

God is a DJ – Tune into: Cloud Services Brokering

  • On how IT departments and IT Vendors moving towards the cloud will need master making a living brokering others peoples IP, just like today’s generation of rockstar DJs
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Dock of the Bay – Tune into: Containers

  • On how containers are claiming their palce in the cloud landscape and what old and new problems they are addressing
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

The Billionaire Boys Club – Tune into: Go to Market Success

  • On how it is hard to predict a hit, both in the music and the cloud industry, but how a lean startup approach can help.
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Locked out of Heaven – Tune Into: Cloud Lock-out

  • On how the risk of vendor fall-out and contract breach in the cloud can be much more immediate then in traditional IT
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Blow – Tune into: Putting customers first

  • On how not all cloud offerings (nor their vendors) are created equal when it comes to (contract) flexibility and elasticity
    GBN – TitC In – Sptf

Alors On Dance – Tune Into: Collaborative Development

  • On how smart cloud providers start with simple but rock solid functions that then are rapidly turned into new value added services
