Podcast Show Notes: Oracle Cloud Update

The first OTN ArchBeat Podcast for 2013 brings you the latest news from the Oracle Cloud in a discussion with three key people behind that effort.

The Panelists

  • Rick Greenwald: Director of Product Management for Database Cloud Initiatives at Oracle
  • Mike Lehmann: Senior Director of Product Management for Oracle Fusion Middleware, Java Application and Cloud Infrastructure.
  • Dom Lindars: Cloud architect for Oracle.

The Conversation

Coming Soon

If you read this blog or follow my updates on Twitter and Facebook you've probably seen references to Oracle ACEs and Oracle ACE Directors. But do you really know what that designation means? You'll find out in the next OTN ArchBeat Podcast as I talk to three four people deeply involved in that program.

The Cloud wants you, but are you ready?

I'm a rust belt boy. I've lived in or near Cleveland, Ohio my entire life, so I've had a front row seat for the erosion of the manufacturing jobs that once put paychecks in the pockets of everyone's dad (and a few moms) when I was a kid. And I had a couple of those jobs myself, before I had the opportunity to make a major career change and jump on the WWW bandwagon in 1997.

Back then it looked like anybody with web-related tech skills was going to be set for life. But a quarter-century later it's clear that even technology jobs are not immune to some of the same forces that so dramatically changed the manufacturing industry.

Consider this from Cloud computing skills gap is widening, warns IDC, a ComputerWeekly.com article by Archana Venkatraman:

About 1.7 million cloud computing-related job roles globally could not be filled in 2012 because applicants lacked training, certification and experience needed to work in a cloud-enabled world, according to a study by IDC.

If that news surprises you, it's time to wake up. It should be abundantly clear by now that the cloud is not going away. And as cloud computing matures and evolves it will bring significant changes to IT.

In July 2012 I interviewed two experts on cloud computing, Oracle ACE Director Ron Batra (product director for cloud computing at AT&T) and Dr. James Baty (VP of Oracle Global Enterprise Architecture). The discussion focused on the emerging Role of the Cloud Architect. During that conversation Dr. Baty advised that even among experienced architects, cloud computing is "about all of us upping our game." (Access the interview here.)

Times, even for those in IT, are changing. So what are doing to up your game?
