Azure Stack: Microsoft's better plan for a hybrid cloud

Microsoft has long promised that it would deliver "Azure in a box" to customers who wanted access to cloud services but were unable to move workloads off-premises. Although Azure's cloud services comply with many key business regulations, there are still companies that need to keep tight control of their data, whether for data sovereignty or for compliance with industry-specific regulations.

Microsoft will soon release its third "Azure in a box" iteration to satisfy those companies. First there was Azure Pack, then came CPS (Cloud Platform System), and now it's the Azure Stack. With the release of a third technical preview and general availability sometime later this year, Azure Stack will replace CPS, bringing together an Azure-consistent software platform with managed third-party hardware.

The cloud will demote the CIO in 2017

CIOs have had a changing role for decades. Indeed, back when I was dealing with them as my bosses, they were mostly rotated in from the finance department and had no real technical skills to speak of.

These days, they typically have a technical background, but I wouldn't call most of them technical or say they have a deep understanding of technology. Indeed, they were and mostly are political animals who understand that their career trajectory will be based more on who they know in the organization versus what they know. In short, I'll never be a CIO.

But I may not want to be. As cloud computing continues to make its mark in the Global 2000, CIOs seem to be much less of a factor. Indeed, I've seen many of their roles diminish. Here are a few reasons why.

IDG Contributor Network: 3 ways to improve customer experience using A.I.

Today, software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies can choose from several cloud computing providers, dozens of monitoring providers and hundreds of different apps to increase their efficiency and help bring their solutions to market. While great marketing and brand awareness efforts can make it seem like some companies are more favored in the marketplace, sustained customer growth only occurs with a great product experience. This is especially true given that most cloud solutions are available on a freemium basis, which further inspires prospective customers to try before they buy. As a result, SaaS companies are taking advantage of user-collected data to provide customized experiences, intelligent functions and improved product support. These product improvements are easily deployed thanks to APIs and solutions that make use of artificial intelligence (A.I.).
