Being a change agent at a Fortune 500 company - the story of Project Sputnik at Dell, with Barton George

Our customers are always tasked with one of the most difficult jobs in a company: being a change agent. In the quest to become software defined businesses, much change is usually required not only in IT, but on the business side. Barton George (@barton808) has been such a change agent for several years now at Dell with Project Sputnik, a developer-centric, Linux laptop. We discuss the history of Sputnik (which is not a full, shipping project in it’s fourth generation) and specific tactics he used along the way, including how he kept his spirits up.

Building the cloud platform ecosystem around Cloud Foundry, a discussion with Sam Ramji

How do you organize the work around building a shared cloud platform between vendors and actual users of that platform? That’s exactly what the Cloud Foundry Foundation was setup to manage and what Coté discusses with Sam Ramji in this episode. In talking about the mechanics of the Cloud Foundry Foundation we compare and contrast it to other open source foundations and also discuss what to expect over the next year.
