Cloud Computing is the way of the future it’s a necessary technology required to survive, thrive and compete in the modern business world.  More So, it allows businesses to focus on revenues, position and being poised for the future without the overhead, capital expense and worrying about staying up on the latest and greatest technology.

Cloud Resource DFW is a site dedicated to the eco-system that evolves around cloud technologies such as Data, Business Intelligence, Security and all the moving parts involved for businesses and people like myself who make a living selling, implementing or just general enthusiasts.

A little about myself;  I spent the last 10 years being a resource to companies who have a general willingness embark on a Cloud transition, and with that responsibility  I help uncover, explain and educate what is important at the beginning, and through the entire incremental process.  What’s more, it takes a person with highly creative ideas and effective communications to help prospects and customers make sense of vaguely defined strategies.  It’s a process that takes careful planning and vetting from the highest levels to see a project from inception to end.  Last but least I am very confident working with all kinds of diverse environments including structured, unstructured, startup and big account management.  The role I seek allows me to Quarterback all efforts from P&L to strategy and communication with thought leaders while working with a cross-functional team to deliver the desired result.   Some of the technologies  I work with are the following:

SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, Cloud Contact Centers, lVR/AVS IP Professional Services, Cloud Hosting, Security and Data Intelligence Services, Big Data, Data Quality, CRM’s and the list goes on.

Thank you for Reading and hope to hear your input, below are are areas I love to work in.

Cheers!
