Our guest on the podcast this week is Chris Cochran, SVP and GM at Rackspace. We discuss the value that Managed Service Providers (MSP) bring to its customers, specifically through the 24-7 support that is constantly evolving to keep up with the rapid innovation of cloud technologies. We also look at the recent alliance between CTP and Rackspace and how this partnership will create leading end-to-end solutions for cloud transformation. Finally, we discuss the importance of planning in the early stage of the cloud journey so the customer understands, and can prepare for the operational changes that will occur once they move to the
Our guest on the podcast this week is Bill Mew, Chief Marketing Officer at Compare the Cloud. We discuss how AWS has reset the scales of IT power today in the same way the Dreadnought battleship reset the naval power scales overnight in World War I. MSPs are a major part of this 2016 battle of the clouds, and Bill recommends they transition to specialization around a particular industry.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Bernard Golden, CEO at Navica and Cloud Computing Advisor for CIO. We discuss the major cloud challenges as large enterprises are pulled in many directions. Not only are they expected to move quickly and innovate, but they must also take care of significant legacy operations and applications as well as personnel. Now that cloud infrastructure can be set up much more easily for large enterprises, they can concentrate less on choosing the right cloud environment, and focus on how to take advantage of it to get their applications out faster.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Michael Heflin, CEO at Sensuron. We discuss Sensuron’s research on fiber optic sensing, which is sure to change the game for internet of things in multiple industries from aerospace to energy to medicine. These sensors may be expensive now, but in less than ten years they are predicted to be offered at a consumer-level price. Small data, or data directly from sensors, is becoming increasingly important as internet of things spreads more widely.

Our guest on the podcast this week is John Dulchinos, VP, Global Automation and 3D Printing at Jabil. Up until 2016, 3D printing was only used for creating models, however on the immediate horizon is a new generation of printers that will allow you to print parts with the quality for real end use. We discuss how designs can be optimized in a number of hours, accelerating the product introduction process. We also discuss how 3D printing will impact traditional manufacturing and design for consumer goods from athletic shoes to internal bone structure and what this means for its corresponding industries.
