Mike has spent 30 years at HP in development, product management and latterly, product marketing.
Mike's team is responsible for marketing cross-IT solutions for HP Software including cloud, application transformation, and converged infrastructure.
Interesting observation...the C suite does seem a bit crowded. Much depends on the individual in any C level role although the job title suggests the orientation. I would tend to agree when it comes to many of these big retailers whose credit card data has been hacked. Thing is I bet at least one or two has a CDO. If data is compromised, whatever the CDO does doesn't matter.
Ya know, Bill, I think the cloud cloud could survive a few meltdowns or certainly outages if that's what you mean. The public cloud already has. There's no reason to think that cloud is any less safe or reliable than a home grown data center. The central cloud issues are data ownership and reliability as well as uptime.
Our #CIOchat question this week explores where the cloud will in 2020. The question - which is being asked in many quarters - was inspired by a post by ECF blogger Rick Delgado at Tech Cocktail. There's no shortage of hyperbole about how the cloud will transform businesses in the next six short years (technology has a habit of making time go faster than many of us want).
The number of small/medium businesses in the world is growing. This is, of course, recognized by governments – many Prime Ministers and Presidents are looking to SMB’s to lead their countries out of recession.
I see this trend inside HP marketing. We are increasingly using SMB’s for campaign material generation, newsletter generation, and so on.
