I am an author and independent researcher, covering innovation, information technology trends and markets. I also can be found speaking (and listening!) at business IT, cloud and SOA industry events and Webcasts. I serve on the program committee for this year’s SOA & Cloud Symposium in London. I am also one of 17 co-authors of the SOA Manifesto, which outlines the values and guiding principles of service orientation in business and IT.
I contribute to to several industry sites, including Forbes.com, where I focus on the impact of cloud computing on markets and workplaces. I am also contributing editor to CBS Interactive, authoring the ZDNet “Service Oriented” site, and CBS Interactive’s SmartPlanet “Business Brains” site.
In a previous life, I served as communications and research manager of the Administrative Management Society (AMS), an international professional association dedicated to advancing knowledge within the IT and business management fields. I am a graduate of Temple University.
