Stream the conversation between Bob Evans & Matt Maccaux of HPE:
In his “dream job” as Global Field CTO for Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Matt Maccaux wears many hats and has lots of big ideas. Bob and Matt talk about HPE GreenLake, the company’s data platform that helps organizations go from traditional on-premises IT functions into cloud experiences. Plus, why “the edge” is suddenly a land of opportunity, Matt’s belief in “industrializing” data supply chains, and much more.
The Big Themes:
- Data-first modernization: the return of the Chief Data Officer in many organizations goes hand-in-hand with an increasing effort to streamline data landscapes and eliminate technical debt.
- Opportunity at the edge: compute power at the edge has strengthened, allowing companies to push real-time analytics out of the edge with a relatively small footprint and transforming how businesses think about it.
- Industrialized data supply chains: like at a car plant, Matt says that end-to-end automation is needed in data supply chains, which means lots of new software and tools and lots of new skills training.
The Big Quote: “The early adopters have figured out that cloud is not a cost savings, it’s an agility and velocity engine, right? It’s profit centers. It’s the ability to address our customers in new and different ways.”
