Thought Leadership: IBM’s Clod Barrera

September 11, 2018

Today, as a looked over posts on Twitter, I caught a picture of my boots  (on the right) from the IBM Think 2018 conference earlier this year.  We were interviewing IBM thought leaders at that show — among the best events that I have ever attended, by the way — when it occurred to me […]

StorONE: The Vendor to See at VMworld…or anywhere else

Not at VMworld, but if you are…

August 27, 2018

VMworld strikes me a bit like watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians. It makes a person lose IQ points. Now, I say this knowing that I will piss off a bunch of folks who think that VMworld is a quality trade show and that I am trash talking their favorite technology vendor.  Some might even […]
