Software Defined Talk: Cloud is just “jigglin’ wires”

This week’s episode is up! Listen below:

Calling in hot from New Braunfels Texas, we got a country mile’s worth of topics this week: we have container services from Microsoft, a lengthy discussion of how enterprise software companies organize their global sales regions, the possible emergence of a new private cloud meme, and rumors that BMC is no longer in acquiring CA.

Pivotal Conversations: A hopeful view of cloud-native enterprise architecture

Another discussion about what enterprise architecture might mean in a cloud-native world:

It’s probably a good idea to learn about enterprise architecture by talking to someone who’s actually done it. In this episode, we talk with Stuart Charlton, now of Pivotal, but previously of roles where he EA’s, even back in the SOA era! We discuss the mapping of traditional EA to cloud-native, and also some strategies for Coté to increase his Twitter followers, and, as ever, some recent cloud-native news.

Coté Show: North-bound Enterprise Architecture with Matt Walburn – that business/IT alignment dance

Further on the quest to figure out what a “cloud-native enterprise architect” is:

What’s the “business” side of enterprise architecture? And how does EA’ing start mapping to DevOps, cloud-native, and all the new stuff? In part one of this discussion, I talk with Matt Walburn about how EA’s fit into The Business.

Software Defined Talk: is The Hot Dog incremental innovation, or disruptive innovation?

This week:

Sniffing out a huge market in hot dog apps, Amazon might start a messaging app. Also, Google has their ant-data gravity device out and Basho seems to be shutting down. We discuss the wonders of Snap’s hot dog app, the mystery of Amazon’s lack(?) of brand allegiance, and giving up on kale.

Pivotal Conversations: The Fat Baby in the Water: Cloud-Native Enterprise Architecture

Most DevOps people seem to think Enterprise Architects are on annoying uncle at Thanksgiving status. I’m not sure that’s exactly the case, but what an EA can do in a cloud-native organization isn’t exactly too well known and documented yet. This week Richard Seroter and I discuss the idea of a cloud-native architect.

Software Defined Talk: Microsoft’s Private Cloud

This week:

Microsoft will ship it’s private cloud stack, Azure Stack, in September. Will this work? Will people buy it? What could you even put in that cloud? You can feel that pull people have towards private cloud, so we’re looking forward to what happens. On a related topic, by our reckoning, kubernetes to small to have already fallen. Also: the elusive Baltimore accent, Oracle and containers, and recommendations.

We discuss the brief history of private cloud and several models people have tried, along with some other news from the infrastructure software world. With no guest, Richard and I discuss some projects we’re working from cloud-native .Net, enterprise integration, and enterprise architecture.

Software Defined Talk: “Do I just need some better medication?” or, advertising, antitrust, and talking to strangers

This week’s episode:

Without advertising, there would be no capitalism, and, if you’re not constantly afraid of the DoJ knocking at your door, you’re probably doing it wrong. Those are two whacky theories about advertising and antitrust, at least. With Matt Ray on vacation, Brandon and Coté talk about The Attention Merchants and the recent Google EU antitrust ruling. We also discuss several other books, and how to talk to non-tech people at parties. Surprisingly, no container talk!
