Guests Interviewed on theCUBE:
Lead Sr Solutions Architect, Splunk
The new kingmakers of IT: maximizing DevOps for enterprise
In today’s world of open-source software, developers are considered to be the “new kingmakers” of information technology — the brains and the imagination that drives software and application program interfaces, and thus organizations. It can be a phenomenon not well understood by business leaders, however, where developers influence many technology infrastructure decisions, but they are not the ones who necessarily make financial decisions in an organization.

Chief Innovation Officer, Altus Consulting
How software DevOps took this company from ‘racks to riches’
Software is eating the world — and it was eating Costa Rica-based Altus Consulting LLC’s customers, according to Chief Innovation Officer Jose Bogarin Solano. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
‘You talking to me?’ Rise of the conversational bots
Whether it’s ‘Hey, Cortana,’ ‘Hey, Siri’ or ‘Alexa, play Mozart,’ consumers are becoming quite comfortable having conversations with smartphones, computers and even cars via personal intelligent data assistants. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
Found and CEO, Nirmata
Businesses search for balance in multi-cloud environments
While a hybrid cloud approach uses two different types of clouds, public and private, a multi-cloud environment uses a mix of public, private or hybrid cloud solutions, but does not necessarily use different cloud types. Many experts view hybrid cloud as a stepping-stone to a multi-cloud future, and as its advantages are touted, multi-cloud is becoming the preference of more and more enterprises, according to Jim Bugwadia, founder and chief executive officer of Nirmata Inc.

Co-founder, Rundeck Inc.
DevOps vs. Ops: transitioning from ‘no ops’ to an agile operational model
The battle between DevOps and operations continues. Software developers want to run with technology, scale and bring new ideas to the enterprise. Inside the organization, however, there are other concerns, and operations is squeezed to its limits handling the day-to-day technology battles, such as security and capacity. This causes developers to look at the business operations as a culture of “no,” according to Damon Edwards, co-founder and chief product officer of Rundeck Inc.

EVP & CMO, Sonatype
The enterprise’s appetite for open-source software continues to grow
Development organizations face an infinite supply of open-source tools in today’s tech ecosystem. There are a thousand new open-source projects a day, with 10,000 new versions and 14 new releases each year, according to Matt Howard, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Sonatype Inc.

GM Network and Orchestration, Linux Foundation
Can the open-source network buzz grow up into enterprise-ready solutions?
Software-Defined Networking disrupted the network into many fragments. Now, the open-source community must package for real-world users, according to Arpit Joshipura, general manager of networking and orchestration at The Linux Foundation. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
Principal Software Engineer, App Dynamics
Applications, developers move toward the core of business
Business is all about what a company can do, and these days, very little gets done without online applications. This has set two trends into motion. As more companies come online, so too do their products. And business is learning that being compatible with those applications pays off. Also, information technology itself is moving from support to the focus of business, according to Balwinder Kaur, principal software engineer at AppDynamics Inc.

Executive Director, Cloud Foundry Foundation
Is a cloud-native crash course the smarter, cheaper answer to developer shortage?
Finding and hiring talented developers is difficult and expensive; hiring cloud-native enterprise application developers, specifically, is even tougher, according to Abby Kearns (pictured), executive director of the Cloud Foundry Foundation, a nonprofit, open-source project that aims to make Cloud Foundry the leading application platform for cloud computing worldwide.

Executive Director, Cloud Native Computing Foundation
Striving for freedom of choice in a multi-cloud world
While the relatively new maxim “Every company should be a software company” and variants thereof are repeated many times a day, few organizations really understand exactly what this will mean for them. The ability to deploy software dozens of times per day — having a continuous integration and a continuous deployment pipeline — this is what many consider to be an absolute table ante for being a modern company, according to Dan Kohn, executive director of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
Founder and CEO, Heptio
What is motivating multi-cloud adoption in the enterprise?
It started with a spark of awareness around containers’ virtualization methods as a framework, leading to efficiencies in packaging and deploying software applications that solve some of the longest-standing challenges in enterprise information technology. All while opening up a world of multi-cloud for shared workloads, data backup and protection. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
SVP & GM, Cisco Meraki
Is networking hardware getting more configurable through cloud?
As developers become accustomed to configuration of resources up and down the stack, networking technology is also seeing a resurgence of innovation to keep pace with the rest of the industry. Just as a developer is able to reconfigure a virtual server or database on the fly in today’s cloud computing environment, networking hardware is also becoming increasingly configurable through the cloud.

Lead Developer Evangelist, Red Hat
Symbiotic software: Open source and the value of integrated solutions
One of the interesting developments emerging from open-source computing ecosystems is a change from a ‘winner-take-all’ mentality to an understanding that many enterprises can flourish and profit together, even symbiotically. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
Solutions Architect, PubNub
How this service saves companies from building their own application network infrastructure
In the world of technology, there’s the product. And then there’s all the other things in the background that make the product work. When it comes to connected software applications, that means networks between devices, programs and servers. Why not use a network someone has already built?

Principal Analyst, Rishidot Research
Analysts predict perfect storm of innovation, courtesy of open source
As the $148 billion cloud market continues to grow at a rate of 25 percent annually, the open-source community can take much responsibility for the adoption and innovation driving businesses to go all in on the cloud, according to Krish Subramanian (pictured), founder and principal analyst at Rishidot Research LLC.

Senior Director, Cisco DevNet
Getting software developers into network … and vice versa
This week’s Cisco DevNet Create event in San Francisco, California, represents the company’s outreach to a new community of developers; namely, an audience that may not have thought about Cisco Systems Inc. in the past. They may have believed that Cisco was just a hardware company that does routers and switching and not one that supports software development. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
Director Developer Experience, Cisco DevNet
Can DevOps make over network engineers into coders?
Software developers are now plying their trade deep down the stack with programmable networks, so why not give network engineers some Representational State Transfer (known as REST) application program interfaces (and perhaps hoodies) and make them developers? Read the full blog post with highlights from her interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
Director of Product Management, Docker
A programmable container network so easy operations can do it?
How does the “software supply chain” — AKA the transiting code inside of containers — link the skills and knowledge gaps between developers and operations people? Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.
