LinkedIn SPAM

Something crossed my mind. A comment on LinkedIn:

Sorry, I don’t want to be rude but why do people post ”if you see ‘this’ please Like, Share or Comment” on LinkedIn? Sometimes added with a: “I want to see if LinkedIn works.” Some might say: “Don’t bather” “Mind you own business” “jada jada” and I agree with you. But isn’t this pure SPAM?! Of course LinkedIn works and the result is you get a lot of Likes, profile Views, visibility etc. And if you’ve connected to Klout or similar your score will raise. But did you truly raise your influence, share of knowledge, networking capacity? Don’t think so! Independent of it was act of un- or awareness.

Dare to offer a General SLA

My new column Dare to offer a General SLA is out on Outsource Magazine.

Short break out:

SLA appendices: I’ve seen some bad ones. I’ve seen some good ones. I’ve seen one which was a really good one – and I loved it.

IT service delivery isn’t a senior service provider’s proviso anymore. “We’ve done this for 20 years, no one beats us!” might be a good call but it might also indicate you’re stacked in old habits. Thanks to new service delivery models like cloud computing and techniques like virtualisation etc. almost anyone can deliver quality IT services. It’s really not a problem to deliver for instance an SaaS

Pay, Ask and Prepare

Commented the post IT Outsourcing Customers Get What They Pay for, Not What They Want by Stephanie Overby (@stephanieoverby) on

Short break out:
"When asked to rate their own talent, outsourcing buyers consider themselves strong in tactical areas such as contract negotiation and service provider selection but weaker in the more strategic fields of improving analytics, driving innovation, and defining business outcomes beyond cost

Cloud ROI

Yes, there is a problem counting ROI in Cloud computing as Joe McKendrick (@joemckendrick) tell in the post Cloud Computing's ROI Increasingly Elusive, Survey Finds out on Forbes but I will continue to count value, not just numbers all the time. To be able to count value we have to understand Cloud computing and why it should be considered and planned for at the upper levels.

Short break out from Joe McKendricks post:
"Perhaps it’s a result of cloud becoming so tightly interwoven with the business that the potential results may be more far-reaching than a single process or two. Or, perhaps, cloud adoption and usage is expanding deeper into business operations at a faster pace than

Interesting read: What makes a quality Cloud hosting provider? Part 1

Over at Compare the Cloud a interesting read and, as always, a great discussion takes place. It's the post
What makes a quality Cloud hosting provider? Part 1 by Richard May.

Short break out:
"How is the supplier operating the platform? Do you have to compete with other users for resources? How does the platform deal with that contention? Different platforms handle this better than others and as many home broadband providers will notice, services can be slow during school holidays. Fine, but can you afford for your applications to be slow due to similar events occurring which are out of your control? I have heard of instances where providers are contending memory by 4 – 8 times on a server.

Cloud (summ)arise 2012!

2012 was a remarkable year for me in social media. I’ve gained more than 1 000 followers…without any follow back strategy. More than 10’ visitors on the blog and good traffic and sharing on GP’s around the web. Not bad for a rookie I think. Big THANK YOU to all readers, supporters and followers. I truly appreciate it. And by the way… what a remarkable year it was for Cloud Computing.

And by the way...what a remarkeable year it was for Cloud Computing. Who’s not impressed by true cloud…when it makes sense, fulfill needs and works like it’s supposed to?

This is my cloud, and a bit of IT Ooutsourcing and management, summary for 2012.

Enterprises Achilles' heel in Cloud computing

Below is my comment to the post Cloud computing's Achilles' heel: Poor customer service by David Linthicum (@DavidLinthicum) on InfoWorld yesterday.

Short break out from Davids post:
"These days, larger enterprises are investing in public clouds, and they're accustomed to real people talking to them on the phone, account managers in their offices, and cell numbers for support engineers on call around the clock. In other words, they want public cloud providers to offer the same level of customer service as the larger

    My first and hopefully not the last guest post on Maildistiller is out: Cloud Price War Consequences

    Special thank you to: Sarah-Louise, Caroline & Danielle

    Short break out:
    Cash is King

    Yes, in a sellout price war world. Cash when it comes to services means long-term agreements. One of the fundamentals in cloud is the ability to move between CSPs, irrelevant of the reason why. Pay upfront, when it comes to IT services, is not cloud friendly: it’s a
