For the last couple of years at Oracle OpenWorld I gather a group of experts from the community, stuff them into my hotel room, throw a conversation topic into the mix, and record the results for an OTN ArchBeat Podcast. This year the topic is the emerging and evolving role of the Cloud Architect. The topic was suggested by Oracle ACE Director Ron Batra, based on his recent article on Linkedin (see Cloud Transformation Strategy: Part IV: Role of Cloud Architects).
In addition to Ron, the podcast panel will include Oracle ACE Directors Luis Weir, Simon Haslam, and Sten Vesterli. Additional panelists may be added.
Are you a cloud architect? Do you want to be a cloud architect? If you have questions, comments, or concerns about the role, post them here for general community discussion, and I will also I will add them to the discussion during the podcast.
