I know what you are thinking...consulting has always been a service. But the Cloud is making it evolve.
Cloud Computing has been one of my favourite topics in the last couple of years. Coming from a sysadmin background I am frequently in awe of how easy it is nowadays to conjure up vast amounts of computing and storage resources out of thin air. Of course I know that its not "out of thin air" ... behind the scenes there is a lot of powerful hardware, hard working people and clever software that makes it all possible. Some people say that Cloud Computing is just a bunch of computers connected to a network, but I disagree: I believe it represents a fundamental shift in how we approach computing.
Consulting, on the other hand, has been my main professional activity for the last couple of years. I love doing it but sometimes I feel it is too bureaucratic for the customers to hire a consultant: what you need is someone who can help you get your problem solved quickly, but you end up having to mess with quotations, contracts, physical access permissions etc.
Wouldn´t it be nice if you could conjure up a consultant in an as-needed basis in the same way as you can with hardware and software?
We at Logicstyle believe it would, and this is why we have created Expert-in-Tech . This is an online consulting branch which will provide on-demand consulting services in a wide range of technologies: Java SE, Java EE, open source frameworks, commercial and open source application servers, commercial and open source databases and operating systems. You can create support tickets on demand and choose a support level that better suits your needs.
So if you have a tricky problem, need an urgent patch for an open source project you use or have a task you are just too busy to deal with right now, give Expert-in-Tech a try. We look forward to working with you!
