The skyscraper and the cloud

A while ago I was on a business trip to New York for some meetings in Manhattan. One of the appointments we had there was at the top floor of a skyscraper in the southern part of Manhattan. I won’t easily forget the experience I had, stepping out of the elevator: a stylish and spacious lobby with an eye-catching wall to wall and top to bottom window offering a magnificent view across the Hudson river with the Liberty statue in the distance. You were almost physically pulled towards that window to enjoy the view. The infinity pool concept applied on an office floor… Read more

Speed dating – lessons from a networking event

It was a great pleasure to get invited to represent Cordys at a Supply Chain Management event last week. After my verbal agreement a couple of weeks back, I received the exact agenda. One of the program items that was planned for me was a ‘speed dating’ session. You might imagine how surprised I was: “Speed Dating? What on earth has a person in a happy relationship, who is into serious business, to do with such a topic? Read more

Cloud Computing for ISVs – Notes from a Roundtable

There are some days where things go quite different than expected. Last week, I was invited to take part in a roundtable meeting with some Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). I was representing Cordys, and, being a vendor of software for ISVs, I wanted to participate in meaningful but a small role. It was a relaxing drive to the venue, filled with good music and an inspiring morning ahead of me. No presentations, no demonstrations, just listening to the customers. But all this changed completely after a … Read more

As I’ve been working on these materials – it … Read more

Are telcos just network providers? Mobile World Congress telco cloud report

Hi. I had the pleasure of spending time in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago at Mobile World Congress discussing the telco cloud. As a former soccer player, sadly I didn’t get to see the Barcelona vs Real Madrid match live. If you saw the result, you know why Barcelona city center was quiet that night… (3-1 Real and Ronaldo scored two). However, we did manage to catch the game on TV at  one of my favorite restaurants in the … Read more
