IT Avengers Part Two – Assemble Again – Ep39

The IT Avengers are assembling again this week, but this time I’m joined by a whole new team, as four more experts from the IT community share their view on the current state of IT within business, the day to day issues and how to overcome them.

This week’s podcast panel is;

Ed has an extensive IT background having worked for over 10 years as a datacentre technologist across multiple technology platforms. Today Ed has made the leap to a vendor, now working for Rubrik, providing him with a wide view of the industry.

Again it’s an information packed show, so packed in fact that I’ve decided to split it into two episodes, with the final part coming next week.

In this first part we tackle another round of business IT challenges. We look at how many of us have a “cloud first” strategy, without really knowing what that means?

We also look at why “cloud first” doesn’t mean that everything has to rush to the cloud and why taking your existing infrastructure and “lifting and shifting it” to AWS is hardly ever the right answer!

We also look at something that was a topic last week, as we discuss how getting the basics right and how a focus on the “boring old stuff” isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

We wrap by looking at the importance of a good foundation as critical to your future success.

Hopefully plenty more valuable information and something to help you tackle your current business IT challenges.

Next week, we’ll finish off this brief series of panel discussions as we hear more from the team on the key challenges they are seeing.

To make sure you don’t miss it, you can subscribe in all of the usual places.

Thanks for listening.
