Cloud Computing and ITIL: Do it right this time!

And take a training before you do the standardization.

Workshop program:

DAY 1:

Cloud Language: The Taxonomy of On-Demand Computing
Grids. PaaS. There are dozens of names to describe on-demand computing, and lots of confusion. This block brings some order to the chaos, offering a comparison of different on-demand computing models including hardware-as-a-service, custom platforms, and large-scale compute infrastructures..

Cloud SLAs
How reliable is the cloud?
Enterprises demand predictable service levels, reliable delivery, and committed availability. This block will look at what level of service we should demand - and can expect - from cloud computing infrastructure, as well as tools and best practices for measuring it.

Running Clouds: What the Big Guys Know
A very small number of companies generate the vast majority of today's web pages, from Facebook applications to hosted sites. With compelling economics, they may be running most of the world's computing in a short while. This block gets behind the scenes of some of the world's Big Cloud operators for a look at what they know about running large-scale computing.

DAY 2:

The Big Migration: Moving the Data Centre to On-Demand
There's a slow, inexorable exodus going on. First bursty seasonal computing, then storage, then eventually all but specialized tasks are moving out of the corporate data centre and into the cloud. But this big migration is a gradual one. There are times when it doesn't yet make sense to embrace on-demand computing. We'll chart the course of a migration into the cloud to enable you to become innovators in on-demand provisioning and deployment.

Managing Applications in the Cloud
When it's your application on their infrastructure, you have a hard time knowing what's happening. On-demand computing environments often hide details from application operators as a result of their virtualization. New computing means new management. This block looks at emerging best practices for managing applications when they're running in the cloud.

Platform-as-a-Service: Building Business Processes in the Cloud
Cloud computing is often referred to as hardware-as-a-service, implying openness and complexity. At the other end of the spectrum, SaaS does not offer much room for customization. But there's a middle ground, where providers offer an on-demand platform, often with its own coding and conventions. This block looks at how companies can build custom applications that run in the cloud, letting the platform provider worry about operations and data integration.

Program inclusions:

- Courseware

- V3 Benchmarking guide

- Cloud computing book

- Morning tea, executive style lunch and afternoon tea

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall

Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy

What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors

I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!

I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run

We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors

we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred

Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested

*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
