Ready for something different? The Virtually Speaking Podcast crew has three very special guests to discuss the future of IT and how we can position ourselves to excel as IT professionals.
The roles of deep specialists and IT generalists are rapidly converging. Administrators now need to be ‘specialized generalists’ who know a fair bit about a fair number of things. Multi and mega clouds, containers and microservices, hyper-converged infrastructure, network micro-segmentation, are all the new wave of technology; With DevOps, AI and machine learning use cases changing not only the way we implement but the way we manage IT. In this session we examine this shifting IT landscape, and discuss trends for personal tooling – how can we position ourselves to excel in this new landscape? What does the datacenter of the future look like, and what sort of people will it need?
Whether you’re a weekly listener of the Virtually Speaking Podcast or never heard of it, this is a session not to miss.
