“Life is a journey, not a destination.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am embarking on a great new adventure. I am leaving Quercus and starting off on a great new journey.
Starting December 12th, 2013, I am starting a new venture.
I regularly champion cloud technologies and I am often at events and meetups where I meet and present cloud technologies to others. The audiences are generally either technologists or business people. Interestingly is that both groups lack the understanding and know-how needed to take advantage of the opportunities that cloud-based services has to offer. This is where the new venture will begin – a cloud services consultancy.
Organizations in Canada are not as quick as those in the U.S. are at adopting cloud services. However, like everything else that starts in the U.S. and makes its way up North, the trend of Canadian organizations using cloud-based services is on the rise.
My personal specialty is Microsoft based technologies. Windows Azure, Office 365, and web developer are each where my passions reside. This is where I will my focus will be. There are other non-Microsoft alternatives however trying to be everything to everyone is not going to help me reach the goal of being the trusted resource within the market I am going after.
So with that, stay tuned for a lot of great news coming from the new “venture”. A name, business plan, and all that is strategic planning goodness has already been through the necessary due diligence. In fact, I’ve already secured our first engagement!
This is going to be a very fun and exciting adventure, and I hope you’ll enjoy following along. I’d love to hear from you. Contact me if you want to discuss, or even be a part of, this new venture.
