Sadin on Digital episodes explore the fast-changing and high-stakes world of digital business. Wayne Sadin focuses in particular on what CEOs and boards must do to lead their companies successfully into the Digital Age. Today, Wayne and Bob talk about defining two big-picture concepts that today’s CXOs need to know about: hybrid cloud and co-creation software models.
The Big Themes:
- What CXOs need to know about hybrid cloud: Wayne walks us through a number different, equally valid hybrid cloud models and explains key security implications when moving to hybrid cloud
- Look out for “fake cloud” models: CXOs need to be on guard against terms like “virtualization” and “hyper-converged,” tactics that might make sense for their company but which are definitely not cloud
- The pros and cons of becoming a software creator: amid all the talk about co-creation models between cloud vendors and customers, Wayne offers some critical advice based on his past experience working on both sides
The Big Quote: “If you get something listed in the Microsoft Store, or the Oracle store, or the Google Store, or the IBM store, and it is a solution for a problem others have and your software is good, your scalability of that product is almost infinite.”
