If I think about it too much, “cloud architect” sounds a bit like an oxymoron. But, cloud architects clearly have a key technology role in any organization. Hybrid cloud, multi-cloud—there’s a lot going on and a lot to learn. Whether you’re just diving into the cloud or expanding your skillset, Pure//Accelerate™ can help you. Join us in Austin, Texas this September to make sure you have all the latest information on trends and strategy.
