Our guest on the podcast this week is Matthew Lodge, Chief Operating Officer at Weaveworks. We discuss how speed triumphs over size when competing as a disruptor, which is why microservices and containers are increasingly important to allow companies to keep up. A focus on small, dispersed teams changes the landscape of cloud computing. With many new companies entering the microservices market, we anticipate future trends for the next few years from mergers and acquisitions to IPOs.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Ofir Nachmani, Cloud Blogger and Speaker at IamOnDemand (IOD). We discuss convincing corporate America to embrace the cloud, especially through the continuous growth of the public cloud market. We are expected to see a 16.5% growth in 2016 to $204 billion, with the largest growing sector in Infrastructure as a Service. We also look at the recent accounting rule changes by the US government, which may threaten some of the benefits of migrating to the cloud.
Our guest on the podcast this week is John Treadway, SVP at Cloud Technology Partners. and head of CTP Labs.
