Read on for a little taster and find the full interview below.
What is your current role and responsibilities?
I am CEO & Founder of Cloudsoft.
What does a typical day involve?
At the moment the only constant is that I am travelling more or less constantly!.
What do you most enjoy about your work?
What makes it really worthwhile is connecting with people the world over all of whom are working towards the same goal – to ensure that cloud is open – built on open standards and open source foundations. “Open by design” is often used as shorthand for this!
How have you supported the organisations adoption and implementation of cloud?
We do this through our partnerships with companies like Atos, Dell EMC and IBM who have OEMed our technology. We enable organisations to take full advantage of cloud in whatever shape or form (private, public or hybrid) that suits their business needs.
Duncan gave more detailed answers to these and other questions which you can read by clicking below.
