At Silverstring we have some avid blog writers, from storage story teller Anton James, to our very own CEO Alistair Mackenzie. So, we thought when better to recap our most loved blogs than Valentine’s Day. We didn’t like the idea of our blogs sitting there lonely, getting little attention on such a romantic “holiday”, after all everyone deserves a little special attention now and again.
In our last few blog posts we’ve covered a number of different, key subjects that really outline the interesting state of the current market. It’s said that the only consistent thing about the IT marketplace is that it is always changing. For the first time in a few years, in our specialist sector, this is currently more true than ever before.
At the IBM Technical University in Prague, there were many fascinating presentations. Being a technical storage and data protection kind of guy with an aversion to jargon (leveraging synergies etc.), I tried to stay clear of the more ‘salesy’ ones. I did, with heavy heart, attend a lecture entitled “Spectrum Virtualize Infrastructures & Turbo Compression: technology, use cases, financial savings & client studies” by the excellent Pierre Sabloniere. It was a lecture on how to sell IBM storage, but the story he told was so compelling that the technology sells itself.
