About John

I consult and write on digital transformation in the enterprise, driven by the inexpensive and ubiquitous computing power of the cloud. Increasingly, all business leaders must attain a certain level of digital fluency and deal with these technical challenges. No longer the sole domain of the CIO or IT department all leaders are expected to at least be conversant in key technologies and trends, just like a certain amount of financial, operational, marketing and other acumen is expected.

To that end please enjoy these blog posts as an ongoing and hopefully painless education in helping you navigate the sometimes bewildering digital driven topics that swirl through our businesses, governments and academia.

As you confront the impact of these new approaches please consider if I can contribute. I have spent my career helping companies come to terms with business disruption caused by various information technology advances. Beyond my full time roles, my contributions have been through roles as a subject matter expert, consultant, advisor and temporary executive.
