This session examines the challenges that face enterprises in adopting cloud computing. Is it just a technology problem or are there management considerations? Are enterprises adopted cloud, is the cloud ready for them and are they ready for it?
So-called ‘enterprise architect’ and self-appointed resident troublemaker, Mark is CSC’s Innovation Lead for the Financial Services vertical in EMEA.
He splits his time between working with clients, working for the CTO’s office on product and services strategy and contributing to the Leading Edge Forum’s Executive Programme. He has worked as a parasite of the financial services industry in Frankfurt and London for the last 20 years and has spent the last several years researching, and working with clients of all sizes on cloud computing, SaaS and Enterprise 2.0.
He is co-author of the recently released LEF report, Doing Business In The Cloud, a founding member of the 2.0 Adoption Council, on the advisory board of the Enterprise 2.0 Summit, instigator of CloudCamp Frankfurt, and is a frequent public speaker and published author on the topics of cloud computing and Enterprise 2.0. He also writes a blog, popular in certain circles, where he tries to broker peace between geek and enterprisey worlds. Other research interests and development experience are focused on BPM and distributed systems in enterprisey organisations, as well as systems management and performance engineering. In a previous life, Mark was a UNIX sys admin, and has the scars to prove it. He also jumped out of helicopters, and drove trucks full of missiles around in the dark whilst going entirely too fast in the first Gulf War. Known for a lack of respect for the status quo, Mark is one of those people who spent their formative years being told that they have a ‘problem with authority figures’, and he loathes bios.
