I did an interview in San Francisco hosted by Bob Rhubart with some well known folks of the industry including Sten Vesterli, Ronald Luttikhuizn, Simon Haslam, Arturo Viveros, and Ron Batra about the role of the cloud architect.
IMHO we won’t see many people with the job title Cloud Architect on their business card. It’s increasingly important and disruptive tech, every architect, team leader and CIO has to deal with it, however it’s tech that you as a professional have to understand. The cloud changes a lot if you do it right, read my article about cloud benefits.
Enjoy listening to the interview.
