“We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat”

June 22, 2015

need a bigger boatIn case you missed it, “Jaws,” the 1975 classic starring… well, a mechanical shark, is back in theaters this week in celebration of its 40th anniversary. If you, or especially your kids/grandkids have never experienced the film in a theater, do it. Trust me, everyone still jumps and screams when Ben Gardner shows up.

Of course when I think about the movie, the imagery, and especially the story, I think about the cloud. No, I do. Hear me out. The mayor and the chief had to get rid of the shark, right? It was swimming out off their shores and making both locals and visitors afraid to go in the water. It’s like if there was something swimming around in your Workforce Central system that every once in a while pops out on-screen to bite your users and your IT staff. You’re left dazed like Chief Brody… To that I say “You’re gonna need a version 8.”

Now, the whole boat thing… Why buy a boat at all? Kronos can manage everything in our cloud. The boat, the compressed air, the anti-shark cage, even the cute yellow barrels. You just sit back like Quint with the fishing rod, whistling and waiting for some other IT issue to bite.

OK, that’s my cloud analogy for today. When you’re not watching “Jaws,” you can catch a replay of our Workforce Central 8 webinar anytime (agenda), or register for 6 Tips to Make Your Upgrade Easier, coming up on Tuesday, July 21 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern.

You get this done and you’ll be crushing it just like Quint and Hooper!
