Let’s face it, AI gets thrown around a lot in the enterprise these days. It often gets conflated with Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and neural networks. But does the term actually mean anything? Are there solutions out there that actually qualify as AI? The roundtable debates.
On-Premise IT Podcasts
We recorded a great interview with Patric Palm of Favro and decided to put it in the podcast feed as a bonus episode. Enjoy!
The Premise: The efficiencies of network engineering will decimate engineering jobs.
The panel debates if this is true. They look at if this will happen across the board, if engineers will just become programmers going forward, or if automation will actually benefit network engineers down the road. And if automation does eliminate all these jobs, does it then become a pernicious form of support lock-in?
On this episode, we’re discussing Network Functions Virtualization, aka NFV. The roundtable discusses what exactly NFV is, how it differs from SDN, and if it’s going to eat all specialized networking hardware. The discussion then turns into how changes in network design principles make NFV even more viable in the enterprise.
An episode so nice, we share it twice. Throwing in a bonus episode to the feed. Had a great conversation with Karen Lopez for IT Origins. If you haven’t already, be sure to listen to her appearance on the podcast with What is Big Data?
On this roundtable, we’re getting cloudy. The panelists discuss why it matters where your SaaS apps live, and not just depend on an SLA. This can impact not just business continuity and customer experience, but security and compliance as well.
Enjoy this bonus IT Origins interview episode with Zachary Smith, CEO and Co-Founder of Packet. Our regularly schedule podcast will post April 10, 2018.
Let’s face it, your alerts stink. If you’re finding lifehacks to deal with the amount of notifications you’re receiving, you’ve already lost the battle. On this episode of the podcast, the roundtable discusses why we’re drowning in notifications, how to better approach it, and why can’t we actually get actionable alerts.
The podcast that inspired it all! Today we’re sharing the pilot episode of the On-Premise IT Roundtable, looking at terrible IT language. Does the name of our podcast drive you nuts? Do you cringe when someone asks you to “double-click” in conversation? Do you have opinions on how to pronounce BPDU? This is the episode for you.
Bonus podcast episode! I had the privilege to talk to Dong Ngo, an IT consultant and writer at Dong Knows Tech. From 1999 through 2017, he was an Editor at CNET.com, covering the storage and networking beats. We talked about how his understanding of technology evolved since his childhood in Vietnam, to moving to San Francisco in the 1990s.
