Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. For anyone that doesn’t know you, tell us a little bit about your background, and some of the areas you focus on now.
Topic 2 - Let’s start by having an executive-level discussion about “data”. Everyone loves talking about developers and applications, but how do you explain to an executive about the value of managing data as a core business asset? What makes data so valuable in 2020?
Topic 3 - The world used to be “big servers” + “big relational database”
- “storage array”. Now that model is blow up into 100s of distributed elements, lots of technology choices, lots of locations. Is there a way to think about data in these distributed models?
Topic 4 - What are some of the emerging data standards that people should be aware of, or learning more about? [[alternatives to 5G](https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-12-20/apple-has-top-secret- team-working-on-internet-satellites)]
Topic 5 - Data moved from a cost “liability” a while ago, to an “asset” as we started talking about Data Lakes and AI/ML models. Have you found any metrics or conversations that people understand (in the “analytics context”) about how we justify keeping data - or trying to acquire more data.
Topic 6 - We’ve got cheaper ways to store data, faster networks coming (e.g. 5G, alternative options) and cheaper/faster CPUs (e.g. ARM). When these dynamics change, new things emerge that we’ve never thought of before. Are you starting to hear people discuss interesting new business ideas yet?
