BuzzFeed for cloud

January 16, 2014

Info Highway MindInformation is my drug of choice. And love. Love is the drug I’m thinking of, but that’s multitasking in the concert hall of my head. Yeah, I have intravenous information highways wired to my brain in the form of music, Twitter feeds, Facebook posts, Google News, Feedly, Flipboard, and that “professional” site, LinkedIn. It was there, this morning someone sold me some bad stuff. Some old stuff. The link in the email digest from the Software as a Service (SaaS) Group read, Adoption of the Cloud by Public Sector… it’s slow, but it’s a start. It brought me to yet another tempting link, Cloud Infographic: Cloud Computing and The Public Sector. Cool! I could use that as a lead in to tell the world that Kronos has implemented 1,100 Workforce Central systems supporting 2.4M employees in the Public Sector, and in the past few years alone, nearly 100 have opted for the Kronos private cloud! That was my plan… until I actually read the infographicfrom 2011!

Anyway, all was not lost. Under the moldy LinkedIn post was a comment that brought me to Mark Dixon, an IT Architect at IBM working in the Public Sector on IT infrastructure, IT governance, private clouds and “Smarter Cities.” He’s got some fascinating ideas on “Smarter Local Government” and “Cognitive Digital Democracy.”

Thanks, Mark. I feel sated. For the moment.

    Leo: Thank for the comments and the Twitter posts. Glad you found the SLG and CDD concepts of interest. Appreciate you spreading the word. More to come, but I work on instantiating the concepts in the real world in my “spare time”.
