Tetration Analytics - Ep 200

Amazing and ambitious technology debut featured in this show.  This first iteration of technology is a hardware based solution made up of a very full rack of UCS servers offering a DVR for the Data Center.  The first real time monitoring and playback of any flow anywhere in the data center.  I am hoping we continue to bring this technology down market...ideally making it some kind of 'software as a service' since it seems quite valuable for just about anyone trying to grapple with how fast things are moving these days.

Episode 158 - Smarter Routers

 We recently had a chance to showcase the new ISR 4000 Series.  ISR remains the acronym for this family as it stands in for ‘Integrated Services Router.’  I am sure we made this argument before, but one way to characterize this one is to see just how much the innovation swings towards the ‘I’ and the ’S’ these days.  It makes sense.

I don't care

O.J. Winge does not care about devices or platforms, but people.

  • I care about creating business value and growing our business
  • I care about how people work together, how they create and innovate;  
  • I care about empowering and engaging people.
  • After all – isn’t this what creates business value….
  • – isn’t this the *point* of technology? To help drive (human) performance to new levels?

88% of Business Leaders fear that 'misunderstanding' will slow them down.  

How do we help with communication? Well, 54% consider the most important part of communications is gauging engagement and focus- through a combination of visual and audio cues, such as facial expressions, gestures and body language, tone of voice.

When you engage each and every employee – you can transform them from “knowledge workers” into empowered employees.  And that is a powerful value for business.

we defined three “personas” fully characterized and profiled as users of our products… and as we designed and developed new product, we thought of the user – the persona the product was intended for.  This changed how we designed and developed our products.  In fact, this is what has driven the design of our immersive Telepresence
