Each episode of the DataCentric podcast delves into the latest happenings in information technology, with an eye towards understanding how it all fits together. This isn't a geeky nuts-and-bolts podcast of how to implement IT, but rather a discussion and dissection of how and where the industry is moving.
Hosted by leading industry analysts Matt Kimball and Steve McDowell, senior analysts at Moor Insights & Strategy, the DataCentric podcast covers new technologies, the trends they influence, and even gets a little "inside baseball" in discussing how the technology industry is moving forward.
Moor Insights & Strategy is a global technology analyst and advisory firm with actual industry experience. The markets we address span the Internet of Things (IoT), client computing, cloud, the software-defined datacenter, and semiconductors.
