Generative AI | Cloud Core

Newsletter • 3 min read

👋 Welcome to the June edition of Cloud Core. This month’s spotlight is on...


(Or Open AI. Or DALL-E. Or Generative AI) 

Whatever you’ve been calling it - it’s making waves.

Let's cut to the chase

There’s probably a lot of cool things you could use it for. And that’s really exciting.

But what cool things are you actually going to use it for? 

And how are you going to make sure you build these cool things in the right way?

Well, firstly - there’s some pretty good news. Our friends at Azure, AWS and Google Cloud are going big in this area, to make things easier and safer for you.

And we are, too. We’ve already been working on a couple of examples. They’re probably the type of early use cases you’ve been considering. You can read about them here.

Oh, and if you have been thinking about these kinds of use cases, it’s worth checking out our handy Open AI + cloud dos and don’ts.

Jumpstart your data platform

Data is pretty important.

AI models – whether you’re integrating things like OpenAI or building your own AI foundations – are nothing without good data. Is your data estate ready to power these kinds of capabilities?

Our Jumpstart Your Data Platform guide is a handy way of making sure you’re avoiding some common mistakes.

📢 Cloud quote of the month

“The convergence of cloud and AI is about to produce the largest and fastest technological and business growth engine ever.”

That’s pretty big then.

📰 What we’ve been talking about this month

A blast from the past

Turns out we’ve been talking about this AI stuff for a little while. Here’s some of our thoughts through the years. They’re not about generative AI, but they’re still good.

Some dates for your diary:

  • 27-30 June - San Diego: FinOps X It’s the biggest FinOps event of the year. And it’s in sunny California. Need we say more. See you there this week?
  • 6 July - Munich: Google SatelliteFancy celebrating the opening of the newest Google Cloud region in Germany, with our friends at Google? Join us.
