So what do your clients really think about this cloud stuff?
Planted Agastache Blue Fortune - as you can tell I'm trying to get more butterflies, bees and hummingbirds in the garden.
So something to stick in the back of your head and food for thought. Do you know what your clients really think about all this cloud stuff? The cloud marketing is doing a job on folks so that you think you should want to put stuff in the cloud even if you don't know exactly what it is.
I keep feeling like there's a problem in the data that keeps getting thrown around. Some vendors make statements like 90% of the customers have adequate bandwidth to support cloud deployments. And then I look around and people say their clients don't have bandwidth.
It's getting to the point that I no longer trust any marketing blurb that cites surveys and statistics as invaribly when you peel back the raw numbers and look at the rounding errors of the study, some of them have huge errors of margin.
Are we reacting to this change because it's really bad for our clients or bad for being a consultant?
Honestly it's probably a little bit of both isn't it?
