Cloud 2022: growing pains, new tech, and solving the complexity conundrum

Despite—or maybe because of—growing adoption across all industries, cloud is still experiencing growing pains, but the future is bright. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with Converge Technology’s Steve Worthington about cloud trends for 2022 and beyond. Steve’s take is that technologies such as AIOps will bolster cloud success, but the trend toward multicloud and hybrid cloud architectures has introduced serious cloud complexity issues that will require a human touch to solve.


The solution...starts with intelligence...human intelligence and the ability to get enough talented architects out there...who understand how all this stuff is configured.

Steve Worthington is a consulting architect with Converge Technology Solutions, specializing in applying cloud and emerging technology to business problems. With over 30 years of IT experience, Steve has worked with many technologies, but he has spent the last decade concentrating on cloud, public, private, and hybrid, and associated technologies.
