The Grounding the Cloud leadership series focuses on people. We are the soft side of technology. Detailing the human element, the series highlights leaders within organizations large and small, from the public and private sectors as well as academia and not-for-profits. Steadily growing from a landscaper’s story to the United States Department of Agriculture, Grounding the Cloud: A leadership series looks at tactical cloud services and their ancillaries, utility computing and strategic shared services. At every level of business and government each of these are a resource multiplier.
You can purchase the first two books on Amazon, and the third is currently in production:

Big Data & Security
Book I, Grounding the Cloud: Basics and Brokerages finds our muse Ben Franklin withstanding a lightning storm in his quest for knowledge, then comparing utility computing to the generation of electricity we break through the noise and jargon, acquainting the reader with Ohioans utilizing the cloud. In the Buckeye State, we meet Joe Drake. A small business owner of JFD Landscapes in Chagrin Falls, he shares his cloud migration journey. Tony Jones, the technical director of Alan Black Enterprises in Dayton, gives insight into transitioning a regional conglomerate from old-school technology to cloud-based solutions. Bill Wilson, Cleveland State University CIO, further exposes the soft side of technology with a tale of finger wagging and the human element.
