Manufacturing Executive published my feature on SaaS software in their May issue. The article, “How High the Cloud,” discusses SaaS versus traditional on-premise business software.

The article provides an excellent, in-depth analysis of the total cost of ownership of cloud-based software versus traditional on-premise applications. The results of which may be a surprise to some.

Karen Riccio, the editor-in-chief of Data Center Management, the journal of AFCOM, recently asked me to begin contributing a monthly column. The column will cover everything regarding data center management, from personnel to facility management issues. 

Naturally, my column will have a data center perspective regardless of the topic at hand. My first column is schedule to appear in the September/October issue.

It is an honor to be asked to be a regular columnist for Data Center Management after being a contributor for several years.
