This week on The Cloud Show #theCloudShow I interview a very good friend and Azure Architect extraordinaire Rik Hepworth @rikhepworth of Blackmarble. See him turn the table around on me to begin to ask ME questions! ;)
We spent the episode partially reminiscing about how the cloud started and grew, but more importantly we talk about how organizations should think when strategically deliberating how to approach the cloud. That and more on The Cloud Show!
Reach out to me if YOU want to be a guest on the Cloud Show, or if you know someone who would make a great guest star! Hope you enjoy the show!
By the way, I particularly like this frame from the show:
