Each episode of the DataCentric podcast delves into the latest happenings in enterprise IT infrastructure, 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, the DataCentric podcast covers IT enterprise infrastructure, addressing new technologies, the trends they influence, and even gets a little "inside baseball" in discussing how the technology industry is moving forward.
