So Say SMEs in Virtualization & Cloud 2013 | Software Development Methods

First of all, thank you to Laura Fragoso, Senior VP Marketing for the Round Rock Express, for allowing us the great privilege of filming this week’s episode of So Say SMEs in Virtualization & Cloud 2013 inside the Dell Diamond.

In this week’s episode, @VirtualTodd and I talk about software development methods. These methods include Scrum, Agile and Kanban with a mention of Waterfall as well. And since it wouldn’t be a proper So Say SMEs episode with a sports reference, we covered Moneyball and the applied use of big data and business intelligence analytics to America’s past time, baseball.

As always, let us know what you think.

So Say SMEs in Virtualization & Cloud 2013 | Software Defined

So Say SMEs in Virtualization & Cloud is back and on its new YouTube Channel. I’m happy to get back into the IT flow with my co-host, Todd Muirhead. Thank you for your support.

In this week’s episode, we discuss the often overused and much maligned descriptor – software defined (SD). Marketeers have appended this term to so many products and features that it has become noise when it should be the primary signal. A signal of what I like to call the connected abstraction ecosystem era. An ecosystem of connected abstractions is what software defined anything should properly enable since it seeks to abstract control such that the physical layers and dependencies become “don’t cares” as long as a physical connection exists.

As always, I appreciate your thoughts and conversations.
