My name is Will Kelly. This is my personal blog. I’m a freelance writer and content marketer.

My professional writing career had me work across industries, including telecommunications, internet services, financial services, and systems integration. During the last few years of my writing career, I focused on thought leadership, marketing collateral, and solutions content.

Along the way, I’ve published articles about DevOps and the cloud on TechTarget, InfoWorld,, InfoQ, and others.

My favorite topics to write about over the years include:

  • Enterprise mobility
  • BYOD
  • mobile security
  • project management
  • enterprise collaboration

As the Technical Marketing Manager for a container security startup, I developed their first white papers and thought leadership content to support the company’s positions about open source software, DevOps, DevSecOps, open source software procurement, and software supply chain security.

Working with solution architects to develop new solutions offerings, such as a standard cloud migration and cloud management offering, gives me perspectives on cloud adoption that you can’t get working on a marketing team. I also was the primary writer for an internal corporate initiative capturing technology innovation across client programs. This project let me capture stories about how public sector agencies implemented the cloud, analytics, and other emerging technologies to serve their constituents better.

During my career, I developed an interest in enterprise collaboration tools and the culture that must be in place for teams to collaborate with their counterparts across their organization. Chance, you’ll catch some of my personal opinions on this blog.

I’m frequently quoted as an industry thought leader in vendor-sponsored articles about the cloud, cybersecurity, and related topics on IDG sites, including and

During pre-COVID-19 times, I used to do circuit training at the gym for fun. After way too long working out in my basement, I rekindled my love for spinning class.
