Randy uses this influence to advocate an open and honest debate about which technologies will win in driving clouds to large-scale adoption. He has inspired organisations and individuals to embrace the disruption of cloud computing to transform business processes and position themselves to succeed in a new world where computing resources are ubiquitous, inexpensive, instantly scalable and highly available.
