I think IT right now is definitely going through a period of growing pains because the technology and the cloud are factors that are growing exponentially.

Peter

But size and speeds in IT have been growing at "Moore" or less constant factors, i.e. exponentially, from the beginning... And that means, things might have been appearing to "explode" just right NOW, for ANY "now" since then. At least to those who describe growth in terms of [a constant number of] TB / year. Those guys look: mid-80s = MB, mid-90s = GB, mid-00s = TB, mid-10s = PB: One thousand (as factor!) per decade--well, at least for the stuff I have been touching.

Simon Halls

I would still regard IT as going through the adolescent stage. Lots more maturing still to take place which may take generations.

    Chuck has recently joined VMware in a new role, and is quite enthused!

    Previously, he was with EMC for 18 years, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Holliston, MA with his wife, three kids and four dogs when he's not travelling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
