5 Females to Follow Through Cloud Space

rosieDid you know that March is Women’s History month and March 8 is International Women’s Day?

During a time when some say women’s rights are being violated and the gender pay gap is in the spotlight, we decided that some recognition was in order. This list names top influencers in the cloud space to follow on Twitter, and they are all females. In an industry that is dominated by men, these women stand out among the rest.

Lydia Leong @cloudpundit

As a VP Distinguished Analyst at Gartner, Lydia covers cloud computing, content delivery networks, hosting, and more. Her position with the tech giant means she has access to some of the most in-depth research around. I’m certain Lydia’s tweets will be an excellent resource for you.

Riitta Raesmaa @raesmaa

Riitta is an entrepreneur and digital growth coach. She’s interested in cloud, SaaS, startups, innovation, sustainability, ITSM, design, and my favorite, serendipity, according to her Twitter profile. She has over 25 years of experience in business development and marketing communications in software. She’s a self-proclaimed cloud computing fan girl and a layman cloud software evangelist.

Vanessa Larco @veelarco

Vanessa is a partner at New Enterprise Associates, but for more than two years she was a senior product manager for Box. Before that, she worked at Microsoft so I’m certain she has valuable information to pass on. She still posts tech-centric tweets and product information that her tweeps enjoy.

Denise Dubie @DDubie 

Denise is a new media principal at CAInc. She’s a writer, editor and self-proclaimed techie. She was once a Network World reporter and therefore is tuned into what her readers are looking for. With more than 7,000 followers, her account is one you’ll want to add to your Tweetdeck.

Vanessa Alvarez @VanessaAlvarez1 

Vanessa works at MSCloud, but was formerly an analyst at Forrester Research. She was also once employed at Amazon Web Services and, according to her Twitter bio, she “geeks out” over Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).

And I’d love it if you follow me @CloudTechReview for all the latest in this space!
