The Cloud and the Dots

The Cloud and the Dots

It is easier to do what we have to do, to be focus just on our own tasks, our own job or just what we have to do. When we are in the “execution mode”,  we are more in a focus mode for Delivery. It means focus on us, on our tasks. But… What about the Dots ? The dots are the things you have to link between your project, the stake holders, the inputs you need for your job, the context and the things you have to prepare to be sure the project or deliverable will be valuable. The dots are the list of all points you have to link, to connect, to draw lines between. You know what ? Value is in connecting the dots. Value is created by having the right objectives, the right inputs, the right expected outcome like producing the document you are working on (I know it is hard too). Connecting the dots is difficult but it is valuable. What about the Cloud ? The Cloud is more transversal than other innovation, it requires more dots to connect. Service definition, Information System guidelines, Architecture, Unified Technologies, Service Management, Support and more ! The Cloud Computing requires to make the link, to be proactive, to connect the dots… Are you starting a Cloud Project ? Are you ready to connect the Dots...
My idea for 2012: A French and Europeean Cloud Champion!

My idea for 2012: A French and Europeean Cloud Champion!

The election period draws to a high, the agendas of the various candidates are refined, get clearer … What about Digital? What about a French ambition for an European momentum around this industry, I mean it, yes this industry for tomorrow? The Andromede project is (finally) launched an initiative for a Sovereign Cloud and certainly a second initiative soon. Let’s be proud of our industrial vendors (Orange and Thales for Andromede). So, back to my ambition for 2012: Which target? A French and Europeean Cloud Champion! What is a French Cloud champion? For me it’s an actor and weigh in the construction of tomorrow’s IT services (like Andromede). Is to be a driver of innovation and build a fertile ground for future pathways for our younger generations! Cloud Champion can develop innovations of all types: new services around new usages (communication, collaboration, mobility, education, …), new software to simplify everyday business without the worries of infrastructure management. A Champion for Cloud but where is the opportunity? Cloud computing is a major break from the model for providing IT Services. This is actually an opportunity, even more opportunities! Develop business competitiveness:review ways to use the Cloud to Transform and it’s not only for SMEs! The Cloud is also an opportunity to define a collective project to pool energies in a common project, a shared project. Vote for a French Cloud...
