Last week, Founder and CEO of Twin Networks Christopher Brown spoke at an event by Vistage. CEOs, executives, and professionals came together to share knowledge about operating and growing successful businesses. Chris came to the table prepared to talk about upcoming struggles and successes in the IT world – namely cloud computing. We had a great time, and have been asked to come back for the next event! See our presentation deck here.
We talked about:
- Infrastructure as a Service and Software as a Service
- Internet of Things: Connecting Everything and Everyone
- There’s an App for that: Delivering Everything On Demand
- Cloud: Business Value in Moving to Cloud
And finally, Amazon Web Services:
Amazon Web Services is a major player right now. They are making headlines today after successfully moving Condé Nast into the cloud. Condé Nast, a mass media corporation, is in charge of creating content for a wide variety of audiences, on all manners of media. Their CEO, Joe Simon, explained the company’s decision, how greatly it helps them tighten operations, and what it means for the future of Condé Nast (watch the video here). The executives asked, “Do we really want to be in the business of running data centers anymore?” With a corporation as big as this where data and content is their main business, storage and access to that content is a main concern. But, it should by no means be as important as content creation.
Virtualizing is not the way of the future. It’s the way of right now. Content should be in the hands of the people, with few structures standing in the way of consumers, the content, and the content creators.
