Our guest on the podcast today is Sandeepan Banerjee, SVP of engineering and operations at ClusterHQ. We discuss why Google’s biggest challenge in the cloud right now is working with enterprise customers. We also consider why enterprises are favoring hybrid cloud approaches, instead of going all-in on one public cloud provider. Finally, we discuss the potential of machine learning and how essential the adoption of this technology will be for companies to stay competitive.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Teddy Bekele, VP IT at Land O’Lakes. We discuss how Cloud, Big Data and IoT have revolutionized farming. From planted RFID chips that can accurately predict future yields, to smart dashboards that integrate crop and field data from thousands of acres, tomorrow’s farms will be vastly more connected, productive and sustainable.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Damon Edwards, Founder atDTO Solutions and SimplifyOps and one of the early thought leaders in the DevOps movement. We discuss why Bimodal IT is the problem, not the solution. It is true that if technology moves too quickly an organization can lose control, but that does not mean the opposite is true and that an organization is completely safe if it moves very slowly. Large enterprises who have been successful at implementing DevOps practices include Ticketmaster, Nordstrom, and unicorn companies like Amazon who have been able to build DevOps processes from scratch as they grew.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Travis Good, Co-Founder, CEO and Privacy Officer at Catalyze.
