Where’d you put the W2 of Cloud?

Lilac Schoenbeck

Today, I got my first tax form in the mail. I’m in Massachusetts, so this one was a proof-of-healthcare form. In the next few weeks I’ll get a couple W2s, a gazillion 10-somethings from every bank that ever met my glance, and probably a bunch of forms with odd numbers that imply I paid state taxes last year and got an electric car tax credit. 

I toss it all in a pile for 8 weeks, and then start the tedious process of filing my taxes – or at least aggregating it all for my accountant. It’s an unholy mess. And, whether you use Turbotax or an accountant, everyone hates the paperwork collection process for taxes. 

Compliance audits are similar – with the added fun of having to account for the paperwork for a much broader problem. Your systems. Your users. Your physical security. Your digital security. Your policies – and now… terrifyingly, your cloud.

Your Estimated Wait Time is 48 hours

Lilac Schoenbeck

On my to-do list on any given day is placing 2-4 phone calls to nameless entities trying to unravel a medical bill, work out some accounts-payable nonsense, or return the yarn that was called “teal” while being far more chartreuse. It’s tedious and annoying – and I have grown weary waiting on speakerphone for the unending cycle of Kenny G music to pass, praying a sentient and semi-competant individual is on the other end of the line.

The Extra Martini of Cloud

Lilac Schoenbeck

We’ve all been there. Out with 3 of our best friends – finally letting our hair down and enjoying a nice meal. Whether nice meal means burgers and beers or some crazy trendy chicken with pea foam – it’s still a great night out. And after a few drinks and half the table splitting the brownie sundae, the bill has come. And, you decided to split it 4 ways – even though Janice didn’t drink and Steve ordered the Filet Mignon.
