Eric Wright
My philosophy in work is a simple one that comes from years of practical experience. There are three components in an IT organization; those are People, Process and Technology. The order of those is as important as any of the individual components. Simply put, the IT organization empowers business needs through technology. And that technology is driven through people and processes. An IT organization needs to be agile, as well as dependable. Agility comes from a strong group of people who are knowledgeable, dynamic and are able to respond effectively as a team. That same team is required to deliver consistency so that a business can be confident of their position at all times. Throughout my years of experience I have developed some personal principles: 1. The priority is customer satisfaction - We must strive at all times to meet and exceed the customer expectations. 2. Communicate effectively and often - Effective communication is the key to delivering complete solutions. 3. Automate where possible - DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself). Use automation where appropriate to reduce manual processes. 4. Empower the customer through self-service - The best way to ensure adoption is through active customer interaction and simple self-serve processes. 5. Support your team - An effective team works as a collective. Be a mentor, a peer and a student. 6. Balance - Work and Life, Effort and Result. Do your best to balance in all that you do 7. Be Proud - Deliver products and services that you would be proud to put your name on.

Intelligent Autoscaling for Public Cloud with Turbonomic 6.3

Posted by Eric Wright on Feb 27, 2019 11:30:00 AM

Autoscaling applications have become a favorite feature in public cloud environments.The challenge is that they are built on the premise of scaling up rapidly at an arbitrarily specified threshold, and scaling down slowly to maintain availability. While this does achieve scaling of applications, there is a better way! On that note, we're incredibly excited to deliver continuous intelligent cloud autoscaling with availability-set awareness. This enhanced capability delivers consistent scaling while simultaneously assuring application performance and resilience in AWS and Azure environments.

How to Get Beyond Operational Challenges of DevOps - Part I

Posted by Eric Wright on Dec 14, 2018 3:21:59 PM

There are many variations on the definition of DevOps. The central theme of them all is that DevOps is used to increase the flow of value from idea to prototype, and from prototype to production. It’s a set of processes and behavioural patterns which change the way that development and operations (and hopefully security) teams communicate, interact, and move code through the application lifecycle.

The Evolving and Critical Role of the Transformational CIO

Posted by Eric Wright on Nov 2, 2018 11:08:14 AM

If you recall the 90s in IT and business then you probably remember the early introduction of the role dubbed the CIO.  Chief Information Officer began as the first crossover role where business was leading technology initiatives which bridged a gap that was very prominent.  IT was known then primarily as a cost centre.  The necessary evil of an organization that often saw technology as only a minimal part of the success of business initiatives.
