Greg Pierce Mentioned In SearchITChannel.com Article While At WPC
Greg Pierce, chief cloud officer at Concerto Cloud Services, a company based in Tampa, Fla., that focuses on Azure and Dynamics clouds, as well as private and hybrid clouds, also suggested Azure has moved into a more mature phase. While Azure was very much in evidence during the 2015 Worldwide Partner Conference, the message has evolved this year, he noted.
"The message is much more pragmatic," he said. "Microsoft is starting to speak about some of the things important to customers about uptime, cost and the production environments being put in."
He also said Microsoft is discussing cloud governance and the security risks people have been concerned about. Lack of cloud governance among many organizations has been an issue in cloud adoption.
