This is another post that’s a recycled email, one which started out with the title: ‘Our share of the cloud shared responsibility model (and the need for application intimacy)’ The original email came from a number of discussions in the run up to the DXC merger, and I must thank many of my CTO and […]


I just had to Google ‘outro‘ to confirm it’s actually a word (as the Chrome spellcheck thinks not). Yesterday marked the end of the back catalogue of posts that I’d originally made on C3, so it’s back to normal service here on the blog. If you’d like a list for this series of posts then […]


Originally posted internally 13 Dec 2016, this post marks the end of my journey through the back catalogue: The dust has hardly settled from re:Invent, but today brings the first big public launch since AWS’s big annual event – AWS Managed Services.
