About this Episode

It's 2020, and that means a whole new set of predictions for the year! Join Moor Insights & Strategy technology analysts Matt Kimball and Steve McDowell as they discuss what they believe will be the most impactful trends impacting data centers and IT architecture over the coming twelve months.

02:21 Silicon Architecture is no longer a buying critera for servers -- it's all about matching capabilities to workloads (whether x86 or ARM)
09:50 The Public Cloud providers will begin a cycle of acquistions to move their offerings up-the-stack.
19:30 The big OEMs will stop talking about servers and storage and instead both double-down on consumption-based compute models, and deliver more workload-specific solution stacks.
28:20 It's not the year of edge (yet), but 5G is deploying and it will be the year that Edge impacts IT planning for the following years.
35:46 The End!
