Recently Jacob Gardner of Logicworks had the pleasure to have an extended and insightful conversation Part 1 here and Part 2 here with Shannon Williams, VP of Market Development for Cloud Platforms at Citrix. They discussed a range of topics related to how Shannon sees businesses leveraging cloud to grow, his perspectives on the industry at large, and where he sees the space developing.

“We are in the first inning of a long game of modernizing IT, and so what it means over the next year to even 10 years, is that we are going to see changes really start to penetrate into the everyday lives of IT managers, particularly the way application developers and architects think about building services and bringing new apps to market. Since it’s early, it’s also volatile.”
