speaking_in_tech Greg Knieriemen podcast enterprise

In this week's podcast, the whole Speaking in Tech gang are here to talk you through the past seven days in enterprise IT: Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela drill into lighter side of technology, from Daft Punk to Big Blue punting its x86 server biz to Lenovo. Putting the sass in SaaS, if you will.

Today's agenda

Is IBM serious about the public cloud? What was VMware thinking snaffling AirWatch? Why is it bothering with the mobile management business? Is working with VDI as bad as it sounds? Will Cisco and EMC come to blows over competing storage arrays? Our well-placed podcasters offer some answers.
