What's in a name

on Jun 12, 2020

It is no secret. All power is one in source and end, I think. Years and distances, stars and candles, water and wind and wizardry, the craft in a man's hand and the wisdom in a tree's root: they all arise together. My name, and yours, and the true name of the sun, or a spring of water, or an unborn child, all are syllables of the great word that is very slowly spoken by the shining of the stars. There is no other power. No other name.”

Data Migration: Avoid the Thunderstorm, Move to Cloud

on Jul 30, 2019

I was invited to present on the topic “Financial Services in the Cloud” at BrightTalk’s Data Management and Analytics in Financial Services Summit held July 16th to 18th, 2019. I immediately started to reflect on the past decade and how fortunate I've been to be involved in a large number of data rich projects, ones that have required lots of diverse considerations as to how information is handled. These have traditionally always been very manual and time-consuming, inevitably expensive processes. From a technologist’s point of view, anything manual is worrying, prone to error and in the end, make IT look bad.
