Welcome to Episode 1 of the Cloud Wars Horizon Minute — featuring news and commentary hosted by Acceleration Economy analyst Tom Smith. Each episode provides insights and perspectives around a new group of companies that are being introduced to the Cloud Wars Audience.
This episode is brought to you by Cloud Wars Expo. This in-person event will be held from June 28th to 30th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.
:30 — Cloud Wars Horizon is an expansion of the Cloud Wars editorial coverage, which has focused solely on the top 10 cloud vendors in the world for about 6 years
1:48 — Cloud Wars has been about the transformations that businesses are undergoing, through the lens of the 10 biggest companies. There’s a huge amount of value being created for customers by the next 10 or 20 or 30 companies so we felt the opportunity to extend the coverage out to the “horizon.” Maybe some of these companies will challenge for a place in the top 10.
3:00 — This is a great opportunity to see what innovation is happening across these organizations, how they’re evolving in partner ecosystem strategies, as well as co-innovation with customers and employees. And translating technology strategy into real-world impact.
3:58 — A sneak peek at some early Cloud Wars Horizon coverage: we’ll be profiling a digital transformation project taking place at Generac, where cloud technology is helping the organization to evolve and scale, so stay tuned for that.
