Schneider Electric Launches New Podcast Series: Leaders Share Insights on Accelerating Digital Journeys During Pandemic
Next up on Executive Insights: Understanding Data Centre Disaggregation
The latest episode, released today, brings in Bob Olwig, VP of Corporate Business Development at World Wide Technology (WWT) to discuss disaggregation challenges with host Kevin Brown.
“For large enterprises and global service providers who have been locked into an expensive single-vendor data centre design or solution, the prospect of taking advantage of the low cost and flexibility of commodity components, a practice called disaggregation, is extremely tempting. Yet with all its advantages, companies are finding that due to staff shortages and skills gaps, re-assembling these commodity components is becoming increasingly complex, time-consuming, and difficult,” Olwig explained. “Through Executive Insights, we are glad to help the industry through this challenging time sharing our knowledge to overcome challenges.”
The premiere episode of Executive Insights with Kevin Brown introduces Schneider Electric CIO Elizabeth Hackenson as the first guest. Hackenson led the charge to enable more than 100,000 employees around the globe to work from home seemingly overnight.
In episode 2, Hani Nofal, VP Gulf Business Machines (GBM) of Dubai discusses how his organisation helped customers ensure business continuity and the critical importance of relationships especially during a crisis.
Julia White, CVP Azure at Microsoft discusses scale and efficiency in episode 3. The rapid influx of cloud-based applications and connectivity for remote workforce created complexities to securing the last mile – and it was a wildly important focus for Microsoft to address at the onset of the global pandemic. White discusses what actions Microsoft took to ensure last-mile dependency was resilient.
