I don't wanna do this anymore. And my future's not in comedy. And then the next thing we knew it was o'brien vow dez and you guys were terrific together soon. And i think stronger than o'brien and severa. I don't want to step in any toes but that was my personal thinking. Did jim approach you about being his partner. Yes he did.

They had some really strong road. Experience day open for a lot of. They became very very popular on the college circuit. Remember back in the late seventies early eighties holidays were booking comedians. Right left to do concerts and being also booked on the open for major rock bands. You know right right. So so jimmy and kenny. They did a lot of that in the late seventies and early eighties. And then you're right. Can you decided to Jump out of comedy he had had enough.

Because let's be honest for the podcast audience if you hadn't thought about it when you're comedy team that's actually more stressful than a marriage because you're not only sharing so much of your lives and and being blind just makes it exponentially harder but still It's it goes beyond the relationship because it's also business relationship and comedy teams.

How can we Protect Indigenous Women
"Is very real and indian country the most quoted report that we've all heard over and over and over again is the one in three which is one in three native women will be raped in her lifetime. And that statement. That i've been hearing for a really long time. We've all been hearing it for a long. Time is from the nineteen ninety eight department of justice report which looks at the national violence against women survey But the truth is it's been discussed by everybody right like the new york times. The washington post even obama when he was president he quoted that one in three survey and he said that it's an assault on our national conscience. It's an affront to our shared humanity. It's something that we cannot allow to continue. But you know that. Data's twenty five years. Old and new doctor. Dr dez being a survey gal. Maybe you can explain to us how that's a problem. And what some of the new information says. yeah. I mean we know the date are old right and yet it continues to be quoted and it continues to be used in in media in policy and the problem is that there hasn't been another report done by the federal government on this scale ever since it literally took to indigenous women to create a new report in two thousand eighteen. This was the urban indian health institute and the sovereign bodies institute who came together to create a new report with data that had to be obtained through the freedom of information act so federal government isn't just giving these data over to indigenous people in our advocates and allies. We actually have to go through a petition to get these data to be able to use them And so that's you know the fact that the there isn't transparency or accountability in the data that are being collected about our people is a huge problem. and so this this two thousand eighteen report was
NFL Franchise Tag Tracker, Denver Broncos
"Own ego signing the franchise tag is gonna make you more money. In the long run. You will make more money off the franchise tag because you're still going to get the big money deal the next year or the year after. And it's interesting for like Dak Prescott, For example, he ended up getting the five year deal that Dallas ended up wanting simultaneously. He got more money up front. I mean, I think I remember he was six years ago. Control. They got everything they wanted out of exactly right. But on the other side, he had to wait for Patrick Holmes deal to come in. Yes, way for John Watson and better And that's you saying the market on Lee goes up You is an NFL team. You are one of two entities. You are the people that set the market or you are the people that are reacting to it. That's it. There is no in between, and so you can either get out in front of it and pay a guy and it's gonna be a cheap deal in two years. It's gonna be expensive. Looking at the front end. You're gonna get a little laughter when you sign it. And then two years and then your best bet go well, you got a quarterback, that's 80% of the market. Or you're gonna be. You know the team that it's reacting to the market and get going over pay for stuff. That's what happens. You know, the faster you get the deal done, the better off. You are period point blank end of discussion. By the way. Marcus may also got tagged today. So is it. We're tying to justice that was expected, You know, Like I said, I can't go to the particulars. But I had a great conversation there Senior bowl with Eric Burkhardt, who's Marcus Mae's agent? We're talking about the situation and everything, And I think those two safeties are eyeballing each other as far as what the contract Sorry. It's gonna be a question. Which team blinks first, but this was kind of like If we go back several years, everyone Dez Bryant and Marius Thomas. Both got tags. They both ended up getting their contracts done, but they literally got done within the same day. Well, it was pulled. Teams were waiting on the other one, You know, to kind of see the framework and see if they were the same ballpark. This deal done. And finally Jerry was, like, just do it here, you know, And that's and then the Broncos like, okay, we'll offer you that. It is very same thing crazy, so it might come down to the same kind of deal And if the Jets can get Marcus made done, they think Justin's will get done first, and I think it will get done early. Okay, So I think Justin's deal we've got well before the draft. Okay. All right. I like that. They've got to well after that to get it done. So that's just my hunch. Um, based on what I know about both sides of the situation and and again, it kind of comes back to the whole procedural word that was used. That was the word that the Broncos used. That's the word that we've understood this entire time. You've been listening the program, we said From a procedural standpoint, the Broncos will likely use that franchise tag for the second time on Justine Simmons is not the intense and not give him a long term deal. People are misunderstanding this situation, and I even had questions today about okay. Well, if they would've pushed back the franchise tag, maybe the Broncos could've gotten something done. Or maybe the Broncos should have tried to do something like the Cowboys were. This whole deal came together in like 24 hours. The fact is, if you You with the way it's supposed to be viewed, which is what the Broncos are doing. This is a we don't want you going anywhere. We don't want to risk getting to the final 11th hour and all of a sudden there's a paperwork issue, and we can't do a bill. That's exactly right. We do not want to risk that. We're not gonna stub our toe. And so we're going to go ahead and get this thing done now and understand they on the other side. The expectation by all parties involved is to get something long term done. Yeah, um and how it should be used by the way the doctor getting it done in 24 hours. I hate that. I hate that term because it's It's not really They were close last year last they were. They were close last twosome framework there, But I'm saying that like it really escalated over the last 24 hours. To appoint, at least at some of the reporting this out there really escalated over the last 24 hours that they were able to get to the finish line right before the franchise tag deadline, right, so that that's that's the thing Dallas has been called. They were close, actually Latin. Not last year, the year before last, Scuse me. Before the first tag that September. They were close. Stephen Jones, They believed they had it. They believed they had it and they were. There were some issues with length and and how the final two years of the deal were structured and all that kind of stopping. It fell apart last night, but they they thought Dallas thought they had it done. S o. You know, I'll just I'll just leave that at that. And we can we go up but a sparse the Broncos go. I have no doubts that they'll get this deal done. I really don't have 99.999999999% Sure they get this thing done, Okay? And then as far as
U.S. Senators Seek Sanctions Against Honduran President
"Year, thousands of people from Honduras come north to the U. S Mexico border and then into this country because of poverty and violence at home. The Bible administration says it wants to get to the root of the problem so Hondurans can build better lives there. But it turns out the root of the problem may lie inside the hunter and government. Now Democratic senators want to put sanctions on Hunter and president one Orlando or non Dez for alleged human rights abuses in corruption. Reporter James Fredrick is in Mexico City, and he's been following this story. Hey, James. Hey, how you doing? Good. What would these propose sanctions do? So this bill was introduced by Senator Jeff Merkley of organ and other you know, kind of progressive leaning Democrats, and it basically starts by saying President Juan Orlando Hernandez is under investigation by the U. S. For allegedly accepting bribes from an aging drug traffickers. So that's where it starts. And then it lays out this whole list of crimes that Hernandez and his party has been responsible for since the 2009 coup in Honduras. Corruption, embezzlement and then violence against its own population. Protesters, journalists activists, freedom of speech has been really clamped down there. Most importantly, the bill says the U. S. Has been complicity in this because we have been an ally of this government of for a long time, and it says that if we want to address these root causes Of migration from Honduras. We have to do this so these sanctions would freeze Hernandez's U. S visa freeze his assets and it would ban the U. S from exporting things like firearms, tear gas and other things to the 100 government. What's going on inside of the country that is making so many people feel like they have no choice but to leave. There's just a general sense of fear and desperation. Fear comes from street gangs that extort and murder people. It will, but it also is fear of the police and the 100 military Hondurans don't feel like they have anywhere to turn for protection. And in desperation is poverty. Hernandez is accused of embezzling lots of aid money towards Honduras. And so that's money that didn't go to poor Hondurans. On top of that they were devastated by two hurricanes last year, so Things are so bad in Honduras right now. I spoke to Elmer Gomez, who is 100 and seeking asylum in the U. S right now about the news, and I asked him to explain a bit. What if none, This is decisions mean for hundreds every day. That is, the future of the album is more so. Gomez says that Hernandez on Lee makes decisions that will personally benefit him or the people around him. He never acts for the good of the people. And Gomez reiterated. They just have nowhere to turn for help. They constantly feel like they're either being chased by criminals or the government. The other thing that Gomez mentioned is that he didn't want to migrate, and that's what I've heard from lots of people. They don't want to leave home. They just feel like they don't have any other option. And so if the U. S was to put sanctions on, Hernandez, would that happen anytime soon? It's unlikely it's going to happen soon. I think the interesting thing to watch for is that the State Department could actually just decide a lot of these things without passing this bill. I spoke to some experts They think that's unlikely as much as anything because the U. S. And Honduran governments are so intertwined right now that just slapping these sanctions on very quickly. Is going to be hard to do. So there's a lot of unwinding of this U S hunter and relationship and really a need for the U. S government to confront the relationship it has had with President Hernandez for all these

"I think when I look at these things, there's no such thing as free lunch for anybody and if if you're investing your time and effort resources, there's a cost that what you're asking your client to do is make the similar investment on their pot without necessarily putting money on the table, but it's still resource on cost an investment in time. Today pardon and I think that's a very great way to describe it actually because. I think a lot of people as you said, when they see something for free that embassy the value or the investment. But if you give it a decent term and certainly sensible business focused term like window fee that they've got to make a conscious effort in a conscious decision to invest on their part with human beings and from the capital. Cost of the. Our and other things. And be similarly invested in the outcome I think it's a great initiative and I actually, I, wish I had a t shirt with on it because it's one of those things where it's such a catchy phrase that is a great compensation stutter imagined that I can I can visualize you because walking in the room gang give me the Whiteboard Malcolm, GonNa write something out wind no fee. What does that mean in the whole room would sit up and pay attention. So I think it's a great campaign and I thank you for giving site in the background to that because it's often the so much detail in history to these things that help shape them that. It helps us understand better. What? Where's it now? Yes that's what I was getting a let me try and answer the rest of the actual original question is right. So A. Me and might be or my boss. You know we we all have been traveling like crazy for the last couple of years going out meeting customer executives, understanding their paying points understanding. The challenges and what we find when I'm talking to various customer executives what I find is. Almost every CIO are there is trying to do some sort of a rationalization. Trying to manage costs, they're trying to improve on efficiencies They just are unable to do it internally even if they wanted to because their skills are perhaps depleted, right are are stressed, and now it is on the mainframe side as there's a challenge bringing new people into the market, which is another thing working on but customers see that bane. And? Even if they have skills, they are often specialized in certain areas and they are they don't have. the the bandwidth to stretch beyond and help with these types of conversions on their own. So so when we talk to them. Every every one. Almost every CIO is interested in getting. Some sort of assistance specially if there are no strings attached head. Charges, services fees. Incorrect or in areas doesn't matter. Right. So everybody is interested in getting that resource assistance they could. They could. And we come in that's where we come in and how done with that. So the the way it works Dez is just very simple. We sit down with the customers the right people in their side Their objectives and I was at skin striven as A. Australian as just efficiency they're looking for whore maybe they ended up with this whole suite of tools from multiple vendors because they went through a series of acquisitions and mergers or dime, which is actually the most common scenario you find out there. So we sit down and try to figure out well, if he were to do this. What kind of savings would realize from a licensing fee perspective from the skills that they would have to have in house from that perspective And we reap together plan Do Doors. Objectives. We agree. On timelines. We agree on features functionality, we agree on performance expectations. that they're gonNA end up with after the conversions. And then once we have that all laid out that's when. My boss opens his wallet and we lay down. Our resources right I mean I would deem the sources that are constantly out there with customers doing just what I spoke about. we have a suite of automated conversion tools that we have developed. these are trudy advanced. And Pretty, robust tools. That have gone through the engineering rigor. We use these automated conversion tools. And a good number of conversions do. The tools can actually carry about eighty ninety percent of of the way with the conversion and the remaining ten percent is in anything that has been highly customized. Are you do need a pair of? Pants and I`ts to double check the work. So we with the tools, we also many MI's the risk of I, that would. Be introduced should you try and do this whole thing manually? Okay You must have some amazing anecdotes. You could share examples okay. Studies or what we want to phrase it with regard to some of the clients you've probably got name them but. I. Wonder if you could share some examples of some of the the the project is you've done of light to sort of highlight how these run. Absolutely, there's. Of course I'm going to stay away from naming any of these but these are all you know. Real things we we are. We are generating a lot of interest in the field. I can say that lots of customers have taken us taken us up on this and you know, why would you not? So let me take an example of a large. You know banking yet in in the United States I've been visiting their site quite a bit I, and so they are pretty close to me to my heart, their executives so they decided to rationalize. Are Two. broadcom products. We started this journey I'd say about eighteen to twenty months ago with these people. they initially chose to rationalize in the areas of fighting operations and application development. When they saw the way, it was being run the. They were able to see because we were there. We were not just doing the conversion throwing it over the wall took it all the way to get it all in production trained their teams specially on optimization develop inside on how to work with what we have just migrated them over to. The they were pretty happy and they came back It's not us going and selling them. They came back. And they said, well, you know this this is good. Hit are a few additional areas can you guys help us there? So we are in the process of picking up three additional areas. where, we're similar rationalization is in progress. I can run through a number of similar examples Another one I'd like to just touch on briefly is as A. There's a large About one hundred, billion dollar Healthcare Services Company. and they're looking to improve on their application development and life cycle management capabilities as they tried to expand their own business. I mean these days if you look at, you know if since I'm on the example of healthcare much every insurance company what used to be a an insurance healthcare insurance provider..

"We've had this vision of the art of the possible that started about a year ago. If you recall Hymns twenty nineteen, we actually had an ambulance in our in our booth at the at and T. Booth at hymns, and we kind of pitched and Marcus up and Simpson. Again, we've had so many discussions customers they're they're they're volunteering their time, their resources to come in and help us right suspects what are the requirements? What are the work streams? How does the data move? How would I like to see it and then they're they're really chomping at the bit for this kind of transformational solution to be able to within their system. I welcome to conversations with Dez on your host Dad's garage field today I have the privilege of being joined in the studio by crews. Now, Rudd is the general manager of a health care solution that at business roads being on the show before. Thanks for making time to catch up with me and welcome back on the time. It's good to be with you again does. So you have been on the show floor and welcome back and will know you for a number reasons both. You're on the show exactly one year ago, which is uncanny. But also we've caught on camera number of times says great catch up with you and I, really appreciate making time. I wanted to just quickly outline what we're going to cover today and I'd like to dive straight in if that's okay. That'd be perfect. So what are to chat about a couple of key things that we're getting a lot of attention and the health guests by particularly five G. and how that relates to healthcare. So I was GONNA ask it gives us a thirty thousand foot. Foot view of the overall industry and where it's at currently that I wanted to talk about some of the success stories you've had the likes of the Connected Ambulance I'm fascinated by that. For a number of reasons which will get into in particularly the combination of I net and five gene Internet of medical things that goes into that, and then I wanted to talk about the whole topic of digital health technology and broad spectrum. That's they are a couple of key things on a dive into and then wanted to close the whole patient experience because I'm always. Interested. In that sort of you know what's in it for me for the listeners know it's great to hear about the technology they love hearing about what you've brought crews doing your team. They're always fascinated about eight hundred businesses doing but the end of the day it comes down to what's in it for me so I run I wonder if we could kickoff with maybe Firstly just five G. and particularly in the context of healthcare could you maybe give us a brief thirty thousand foot point of view industry update on what's happening the big moving things and what should people know about with regard to what you're doing in healthcare and five G. AT business? Does. Yes. Thank you for the introduction and it's so good to be with you again and yes, there's been it seems like everywhere we turn the media, the industry, the analyst obviously, our customers are very interested in what's going on in the five G. Area, and that's for good reason five G. Will Shift the paradigm for many industries including healthcare and it's really accelerating the experiences into a future today seems a bit like science fiction. we've seen the rise of an ecosystem of services and products aimed to change the customer experience and leveraging the five G. powerful connectivity platform to transform how those services are consumed, and really it's becoming more more about the experience that Fauji can't deliver versus just a speed. So when you love, it's not only the speed, but the latency and jitter and the number of access points that we can connect to the podgy platform they're really does. A really big white space for innovation and transformation healthcare. So some of the work we're doing their last year, we announced our relationship with Russia. As the first five G. Standards, base hospitals, hospital ignited states a few weeks later before Hinz last year, we announced our work with the toss and the work they're doing with hospice as it relates to space a a RV are and really the distractive parity therapy work they've done they've done that and that's that costs firm. But we think about five G. at a higher level. We think about a multiple areas of focus and it starts with things like education and training at moves into three D three deportees, ation collaboration. It moves into cognitive behavioral therapy as I mentioned earlier, the work with toss and then moves into other specific subsets of that such as remote robotic surgeries to name a few and even moving large file images and videos through the hospital wherever, whenever needed, and so a drill deeper into the work and the and the and the work we're doing with rush, and that's one where rush is actually using the foggy connectivity platform to be able to move large images and. Files throughout their system. So think of large M. R. I. Impact Images. If you're a member, does you attended our at and T. Business Summit in our in our Pod, we had a demo of a one GIG file. It was being downloaded on the four G. Network, which took almost five minutes and then compared to the one on the five G. Network, which took about eleven seconds. So you can already is see very quickly with the speed of the of the connectivity, how by moving that file where and when needed, you can begin beginning the diagnosis. You could map that that image to maybe ten thousand other images to compare to highlight different areas of focus for the physician. Before they even scan and look at the file as well as being able to move it to and from where necessary before even the four G. can download. So the the work we're doing there is revolutionary and we're seeing a lot of valiant traction in that particular use case. As, it relates to toss a lot of the work be done with distract therapy and focused on the end of life experience. But this particular use case really does work with pediatrics or even chronic pain management, and the idea here is that you're decoupling.

"A solution, so were really aligning or business model as action model, and our technology models US another example that comes to mind I think it's fantastic. An I love the fact that you've made that offer because I think you know there are so many people who've been called off God no matter how good they are the job and you've in effect. Come to the rescue in a sense to ensure the day protected than they had. Had the ability to catch their breath and get through this challenging period I had a cut a classic where I was talking to someone recently, and they had a problem and directed some telecom. They rang the next day and said my God I. Just saw it with the Cleveland Button. They had sent their entire workforce home they didn't even leave their techies in the office and then a couple of days later. The DB really said I usually swap out types of the end of the week to do back of a our sql database up and they're like well, okay. What does that mean well? It's run at a types and even in two thousand and twenty right. And so he ring says what do we do and said well I can't believe doing anyway, but within twenty four hours they had migrated to you'll platform, and the database was backed up protected, and they had done a full recovery to a training and test site and a full recovery to development and integration site, which was interesting, because he said it was just literally five minute exercise to do that as opposed to die prices getting that grandfather father son, rebuild the archive, and so Naro needed to get them out of trouble of not having to. To send somebody back to the potential to to have slope out tights, which I'm sure it was just a logistic logistical nightmare that some also gave them outcome that they realize it now I've got cloud I. Can you do a cloud to cloud recovery? As it were, and have a copy of my training and a cloud to cloud recovery to then make a copy of able to my integration development team and is like we've never been able to do that before it's just a dream. Come true based on to it off line to do testing civil. It is a natural evolution that we are moving to the cloud as a natural evolution effectively adopting S. Media just they just make sense commercially, and technically, and that a lot of those risks that we might have had one security personal. One Data Protection Person In the Organization of Twentieth, thirty thousand stuff could never keep up with one hundred thousand hackers, one, hundred, thousand, a ransomware, people in these cybersecurity, and you know hackers and ransomware business. They're people who treat. That as a profession than they are large organizations that officially in the business of. Getting ransomware attacks in place in making millions from it, and I had a great anecdote the other day where someone said I think it was actually at one of live coffee Tolkha livestream with the team that I host where one of the teams said something to the fact that ransomware people now site professional that they actually beat up competing ransomware attack. Saying look. If you get paid, make sure you give them the keys and let them restore the data if you've done. Done then other people realize that if they pay the not gonna the day, Tobacco's like hanging. Let me think this through. You got competing ransomware hackers forcing other rents why people to make sure that if they get paid the rent somewhere money that they do give the keys and let still the data because at trains people that if you pay you, get your data back so that professional criminals at the instagram. This is just the mind boggling thing of the hood. But phenomenal anecdote there someone doing a proof of concept and then also being out to be restored during a ransomware incident. I think that's that's almost the the penultimate example of kind of where we're at. Isn't it and I? Guess that's what I. Come to wrap up on his in the next twelve to eighteen months. The world's going to be going through yet. Another massive transition we were out with the pandemic with covid nineteen, coming at us at a rush without a situation. We're GONNA have to make this pivot back to something that we refer to as the new normal. Don't think that anyone has anyone new normal. That is going to fit everybody. Going to be higher that some some companies going to go back into the office, others are going to do a half and half, and then some organizations that just not bothering good back to the office at all working remotely so this must create a whole plethora of of challenging you scenarios a not just meeting human beings that moving infrastructure back creding these hybrid. Hybrid scenarios I wonder if we could maybe just wrap up with Yasser key takeaways and thoughts around the types of things that people should be talking about in with its from boardroom down or within the tech, teens and business units of what to think about and way metallic confident solving problems for the next eighteen months as we do. Make this transition back to. What we refer to as the new normal. It's. One of those storms Bring myself to love the term the new normal, but it is backed right. It's in front of us and you know everyone's looking at the timeframe and saying what are the things know? We don't think we're going back to the old world on almost. Any expert agrees with that. Maybe it's a hybrid will both in terms of you know schooling war in our normal life and technologies that the Republicans were rats above the horizon.

The General Manager for Metallic Division of Volt Malaysia, welcome to show thanks so much making time to join me. Thank you so much for having me? You're looking forward to the conversation. Indeed, so we've got a great conversation number early exciting things to share, but before we do that, I would love to just briefly introduce you to our audience I have it on good authority that you're an avid foodie like myself and the described you as someone knows that you need more than a recipe for success in the requires vision, creativity, experience, working line, an unstoppable drive to succeed, and I thought that was a perfect way to kind of injuries.

You've also served up cloud insecurity offerings for the likes of HP EMC Ziam, wear and more recently RSA and something. I was blown away by I actually didn't know this and I feel embarrassed. I didn't, but you hold the twelve. Payton's in information management and security, and if that wasn't good enough, you also have a moss's of computer science from Clemson University. That's an amazing background and amazing pedigree for this role as General Manager of metallic affiliate recent movement fully. What's it been like? So joined the organization and. Join a new family. First of all them for that was a gracious introduction. Thank you that it's a very interesting time. The Jinan York I've been here for little over a few months now and. Know, it's a team that has. Something new in the last six to eight months and moving very fast, so you know we just got I got into the slipstream and. Started running at their pace and not work together as a team in this. I am postal with nineteen world there. Everyone is remote. And I told my team. Maybe sometimes it's helped us as a distributed team to come together because we're all on zoom. We're all on the videos and. talking all the time, but it's probably the first time ever had to do that in the organization. I wonder if we maybe just a little bit of background in itself, personally way originally from kind of. What your early years of academia, and than some of the detail of creosote foster come to this exciting role just to kind of introduce you to our audience to just give them a a bit of insight into you personally. I grew up in India. Middleclass family out was. My Dad was. Working in the railway, and that means building tracks in places that are pretty remote, so kept moving around. I remember. My sister was several years older than me going for a coding class, and I just went along with her, and I fell in love with computers and the whole notion and technology and. Being. Kind of so. I forget it I'm probably was a nine ten years over the aren't. Ever, since then being an avid tacky. To To do a master's in which reality and those. That's what I wanted to do I said yeah, switch switch pats. I got into the system side of things. A lot of computer systems stories data protection. Data analytics security in or the last. Ten years or so I have been doing a lot of things in the cloud domain so but I was lucky being able to. Have what I would say. Strong family learn the you know the foundations of life like we're working hard and on Sanchez and the. Spouse that I learned from every day. You know so. There's a lot of fun those things that make me who I am. Your career path, and both you know your work around data, protection data security, and your security pines seemed to me like the perfect pedigree of coming from there is large enterprise environments and running businesses that are in the against the industry of protecting data managing data serving dider Beit Hij- P particularly emc somewhere and me the focus around security with your role in our assay. It seems to me there's been this. This natural evolution to this option he now to sort of head up the tally business. which is all about protecting data? It seems to me that you're kind of built for this space in the cloud, and now you're what I would describe as a cloud native working with other cloud natives, so let's just dive into Dan the life of the general manager for metallic. What what are some of the the usual challenges he faces? You know within the managing the facing the business and getting to know the industry. It's.

"Loves system hoax logs, and application of course transaction logs you can. You can name dozens of log sources. Sources and everyone those logs sources essentially has implied resumed integrity, so what takes US organizations so long? They've gotta go effectively record by record log line by log line through these indicators and artifacts and say hey, does this feel authentic to you? A going down the right path or we being led down the wrong path, deliberately manipulated by adversaries to stall for time to throw US off the center of the trail into effectively extended time of our investigation to the point that either we never reach a proper conclusion, or by the time we reach it it so far after the fact that they can redeploy these same tactics and techniques against us or appears within certain easily win or to your timeframe. So what happens? In contrast to what happens privately, which is much more mundane, but frustrating fascinates me and I vote of gone back to one of my earliest realizations early in my career post, university worked for the Canadian federal, government as a contractor, and it became quite clear to me that you could be incredibly transparent with regards to wear tax dollars go to exactly how they're budgeted, ultimately allocated into whom, but there were all sorts of reasons, some legitimate in many many. I would say political illegitimate to not expose that level of transparency, and it's really fundamentally the same way today with regards to small medium or very large breaches is. Is that fundamentally these are Zeros ones, and as long as you're applying the right tools and techniques in your people are trained and incentives to do the right thing you can get to very very precise attribution with very deterministic. You know was strengths, but we choose you know other priorities leaders. We choose not to do these things for you know perhaps some indirect as well as the reasons in this is why the whole field of digital risk management is still so vague, has standard deviation unacceptably large? We're getting to be as precise. Of silicon that can be. So! That leads me next. Obvious question I guess let's talk about chain kit and it's described as software as a service company that builds cyber security solutions. Maybe walk through the technology stack from of foundation upwards. What wise it so different houses! unique and enlightened able to mitigate most these these coal risks talking about. And and we sort of delve into some of them, examples of it being implemented in where a place into the into the various spices. Yeah and if you don't mind, I'll use sort of a company. That's a bit of competitor ours, but it's mostly viewed as a pioneer in the integrity industry. As we've discussed before we, we like to position ourselves using a very well well known constructive. The C. I. A. Security Triangle, the standing for confidentiality, the I for integrity and the a facility cybersecurity professionals you know, remember this text textbooks, and if you take A. A look at how crowded each corner of that triangle is. You'll see that the confidentiality portion of that triangle is just overwhelmed with pretty much. Every cybersecurity vendor more than a thousand close at two thousand vendors, which of course lends to confusion and fatigue on the part of the buyers, the availability angle particularly with the era, and the rise of cloud is not as crowded, but there's lots of great solutions for keeping. Keeping your data available, if you know something either happens to natural disaster or malicious cyber damage to your data, there are great availability solutions from the old backup industry. If you will and now the modern cloud version of that, but the integrity part of the triangle is a very very lonely empty space, because apart from an innovators such a trip wire about fifteen twenty years ago, there was no other vendor you can. Can name yet. You know hopefully chain kids suit, and once we get our branding up, but that really is an underserved part of the market, and therefore we revert back to your thirty nine percent statistic of of undetected attacks. We take a look at incredibly well documented analyses for rising does a fantastic job annually publishing the dvr that data breach investigation report it look at hundreds of thousands. I think this year was. One hundred seventy thousand incidents, they reduced to about four thousand different kinds of attacks in this very painful that I love, it covers everything so succinctly and what you observant that I chart. Is that? Yes, confidentiality is breached by all the attacks, and yes, half the tax benefit like ransomware from having a good mirror view data for availability to recover from, but also every single is four thousand styles of attacks, one hundred seventy thousand times last year, breached integrity and what we don't have in the industry is a modern version of the pioneering solution. A trip wire was because twenty years ago. The world is files bites. If you manage to just closely monitor. Monitor the integrity of files. You had a really great balance to your other antivirus solutions as the case might have been twenty years ago, maybe a network firewall twenty years ago, you know in at least a backup of your data or an archive of your data, so that represented balance in Cyber Security Twenty years ago were completely out of balance today, but if you were to re imagine a strong integrity solution today, he basically saved. The world has moved beyond files. From a persistent basis we have objects, we have buckets of objects, and in a folded like hierarchy. We have in memory databases, so it's really important to have integrity for memory regions, not just persistent things, and of course we don't want to have the user manage this because it can also be attacked. When it's a user. Manage thing. We want this to be offered as a secure service to the user as opposed to having to have the user manage the integrity service themselves, and that re imagination of an integrity solution is now chain kit integrity as a service, it applies to all these environments, and we've actually chosen to make it simple for customers to consume this by make basically going through the typical overwhelmed fatigue scenario where we have empathy for our buyers, not forcing him to replace something they're already works matter. How much better we are not forcing them to learn something net new which requires. Requires quite a bit of investment of time, which is the most precious resource now, but simply taking tools they already have namely spunk and or elastic search, and adding onto those tools, writing effectively apps for those platforms and exposing all that integrity value, initially those ubiquitous widely deployed tools, and then being able to extend that as necessary to other security, monitoring, solution, or other data, pipelines, quite frankly or just network segments or systems hosted APPS, so the extent stability is just a fantastic opportunity for our value added distribution channel to do consulting systems integration support in audits on.

Because the the such a an amazing amount of information that just to get started but I also recently saw a number of great updates coming through the vitality program and one of the things I really loved was right out. Front is a question that just says what's in it me always like it when people realized. I want to know what what I'm going to get out of this and so I did like that. That was a great addition above and beyond outlining the fact that as you said through all the sections is I know this one. That's saying now that this session's coming up for the Winter Spring Period for two thousand twenty and then write this outline what the vitality program is but right in the middle of the page. What's in it for me and I think that's probably speaks volumes to I. Guess the the approach. You're taking that. Is it you you know why people are coming to? You know what they're looking for so yeah absolutely I. I think you're banging on the money there that people should just jump on the broadcom dot com website. And just go through both the Well the two ones we've been talking about specifically the Mainframe Academy and the vitality and then from that does a whole bunch of the material. I wonder if I could ask you one last question before we wrap up there. I mean if you brought I really love what you doing around the advocacy piece That's just a fantastic. Just get so excited about the fact that someone in the organization within broad come in the world who who has this whole customer focus not just from the basic customer service and support and so forth but really understanding what makes a customer tick and a dust. Love the fact you you. You've answered all the questions and challenges around the community and the businesses from on boarding new people or refreshing skill sets and retraining skill.

"And whatnot and so for our small businesses We are very very much very much focused on ensuring that we can do what we can To support them through this very very difficult time and just another You know what I would say a little a little personal commercial here for small businesses. I know in the community that That I live in here outside of the Dallas Fort Worth Metro area. You know our community You know we're all about the small businesses here and so I know we've rally here Around around our town on Ensuring that because we wanted to communities who still can write our restaurants are still open for takeout and delivery and whatnot and even as Something as simple as just just continuing to go right You know in a Physically distance the way to support the small businesses. In whatever way we can I mean we are. We are all about that. Just in small businesses are in fact the You know if the heartbeat they are the heartbeat of American. I think he might have even heard me. Say That in my job right as I had the opportunity to support them and so there are. Many things You know that that we all can do as as individuals right this whole Notion of shopping local or being able to conduct with these businesses online. We all we all should do our part if we can right. So this gives you a feel for what we're doing testing. And congratulations on those amazing initiatives. Because I think they are so critical. Because I've always been of the view that small businesses the bulk of jobs created whether it's part time workers or from a burster doing a few hours a week at my low cafe and be my favorite cup of coffee through to the types of services we consume once or twice a month and without that support as you said they are going to go broke. They're not going to survive. And there's been one fund one he that I saw where there was a campaign where the cafes obviously weren't allowed to have lots of people in them and they had a whole bunch of product available so there was a campaign run where people actually went and just bought a two of everything and In in my case I went and bought half a dozen croissant. Just put them in the freezer and frozen knowing that I could microwave tomorrow but I think it's so critical that you've done these amazing things around low income consumers Some of the trials. You're running and even things like your digital TV subscriptions. I mean I hate to say whilst we got kids at home. And if the young digital-tv our IPADS become the babysitter while mom and have to work from home and try and keep the job going and I think this whole thing of scaling up. The level support for them is so critical. I think it's an amazing thing you're doing there. I wonder if I could maybe just touch on one final point before we wrap up then. I mean we've talked about what you're doing with federal level state level government big enterprise and certainly now small enterprise. One of the things that. I'm really really keen to learn about a given the amazing what you and your team are doing. And how how much impact you're having as you said and you touched on this at twenty four seven year right now personally. I'm sure that's the case for your whole organization given the the challenge you have. I mean how your team doing. How your employees cutting this whole thing and and the some of the changes you've had to make the company recently. Yeah I hear Ya well I think It's And I'm glad we're closing with a discussion on the employee because I you know just just as we started there You know our people are are the most important part of any organization right. They are the the heartbeat of be rooting station. Literally literally And figuratively. So how are my people doing You know this is. This is a stressful time right. I mean stress is Is as stress. Manifests itself discomfort with the dissatisfaction with the current situation? Right and I think that if we if we looked at any point in history That describes where we are today right. I think that you know if I think about each of us on a personal level each of us does have some degree of stress has some degree of fear right perhaps some degree of sadness.

How do I get them the information they need? And how do I enable them to be able to do their job? And this has been a bit of a rolling thunder kind of approach. Every day is different in terms of what is needed and as more countries hit the different phases of where they are with the Pantai back as more states. You know here in the. Us declare different states of emergency. You know go from a shelter in place to stay at home to the various degrees. Hi and welcome to come stations with Dez on your host does Blanchfield net. Today I have the pleasure being joined by an chow now and as the chief executive officer at. At business and welcome to the show. Thanks for taking time to catch up with me. My pleasure happy to be here so no strangers. We've caught up a number of times over the last few years particularly on camera number circumstances at the eighteen business summit. And it's been fantastic to see you in person there and I really appreciate you making to catch up today because I wanted to have a conversation around some of the amazing work you doing. Their business as chief executive officer writing business. You've got such a broad remit but in particular right now with what the world's facing with this whole pandemic and code nineteen. I thought it was a timely of changes to highlight some of the things you're doing within your own organization even some of the challenges you're facing personally and your own need to work from home and then some of the things you're doing with regard to addressing some of the challenges that the customers are facing in the industry as a whole. But how you doing? How's work from home turning up for you? I mean you personally obviously have to go through this journey yourself as well as lead the the the business in the team around you. How's this whole shift of working from home and safe with going to use I fall? Yeah yes it has. It's it's It's it's kind of interesting isn't it? I mean we as a society we as humanity of never found ourselves in this position. And you know from from business perspective. I almost feel like you. My multi decade career which has spanned three decades. Now has almost prepared me personally for this moment as well as As well as my team you know I've spent the last Last three decades Serving customers of different sizes and shapes and in different industries in various roles. And so now at this point of let's face it. We're in a crisis you know this is really all about. How do we ensure that businesses and organizations humanity consumers people you get through this and that we not just survive but we get to a point where we can at one? Point thrive again in terms of work from home. I will have to say that I'm not that great at it. You know I I am not one who is typical to work from home. And so this adjustment for me even on a personal level is Is stretching my Flexibility and my agility in the that. I'm big on relationships as I think you know And so the challenge and the opportunity of figuring out how to build and grow relationship in a mode of crisis Where things are ever dynamic ever. Changing is a challenge that that face especially in the early couple of days we got used to. How does one communicate collaborate effectively? I would say on a very personal level. I think the dynamics even just of all of us being in our home more virtual environments. Or if you're in the office rent a center without all of your resources that you're used to being they're coming upon us to learn what this next normal is day to day. I mean literally every day is different and I think that is something that also drives stress and pressures in today but you know ours is a mission where we are a people business. You know we are all about our employees and our teams and we're all about serving our customers and so This is This is what we were made for us. We were made for the business of communication and connection covert nineteen instead of one of those things where it's once a lifetime for for all of us. I think there was an ancient comment ahead from wool to vet in Britain. And he's come. It was a his generation went to war for us. And all they're asking is that we sit on the couch for few weeks which I thought was interesting. A really did bring home. That whole challenge of won't do we need to do as individuals to change behavior around society and cultural you know mixed to to ensure that yes we asked home and we are social distancing and doing that sort of thing but the flow on challenge of business continuity around keeping the lights on from a technology perspective from a telecommunications perspective from keeping staff morale this really big challenges that organizations are facing now and the interesting thing. In this case. I guess For Chinese that eight hundred thousand nine hundred business sells having to go through it for the very same reasons that every other organization is. I mean you've got a number of different types of business continuity plans in place from just you know scenarios like a fire in the building to these sorts of health crises. What are some of the key things you being through of light yourselves just to go from moving? Humans out of the buildings to putting safeguards in place just to get to the point where you can keep your own lights on. Yeah so as Roy. Our business I'm in. Yeah let me START WITH WITH OUR EMPLOYEES. You know you eighteen business networking of communications and you know the. Us Department of Homeland. Security is being our roles as essential. Because when we think now about the role of connectivity does you know and the role of networking no no longer is this technology. Are these solutions disservices? Nice to have they are they are a must have and if I would even ask our listeners here to pause for a moment and think about what this situation would be like if we didn't have connections if we didn't have continuity if we did not have a communications What would this crisis be like if we were not enabled by technologies to work through it? And so for us. It's really been about our employees for us to make sure that they. Are you know in a in a safe environment? We've had to pivot heavily as many many many many of my customers have had two very heavily virtual environment and that requires that you. We set the right tools we said at the right processes. We've also had to make sure that we're focused on our employees safety and our employees health. Right person foremost we have done various things around the organization in terms of what we provided to our employees around that and so of course we've we've also put in place so you know you call it. And then I think a world calls it social distancing. I don't like social distancing does because I feel that What is it really is? It's physical distancing. I I actually feel that now more than ever. We need social connection In this current environment is making it More difficult but we. At and T. Our role is to make that a social connection that relationship connection business connection even more viable even more critical even more reliable even more scalable. And as I think about the network. You know the network most Most of our listeners. At and T. As a as a networking company. And you know. I I can readily say in fact the very first job that I had thirty years ago working for the company was as a network architect so I can say here now. Almost thirty years later that Our network was built for this And it is operating quite well. I do like the the highlighted that the term social distancing probably doesn't do a very good job of describing what we'd really do which is as you said physical distancing. I wholeheartedly agree with the whole social connectivity thing. I mean I was watching something last night online and and there was a commentator who was saying that one of the biggest fallouts from this is going to be psychological issues because people aren't used to being landlocked in their homes all the way through to the health issues because people are normally get out governor. Walker governor job and Iran and now having to work out in the backyard or in their apartment so some of the the the social and economic flow on this a still to be realized one of the biggest things that keep coming up. The is the general challenge of connective incapacity. And I'm really keen to get your insights on what you could share around when customers. Think about just keeping that connectivity going in the quality of it particularly just around capacity and the ties capacity the organizations need. I guess firstly from eighteen point of view. What sort of measures are put in place to ensure that the network itself has the appropriate capacity and then what sort of things should organizations and particularly accustoms be thinking about with regard to? Do I have the appropriate capacity on on my network connectivity. And this'll services. I have so our network as it's evolved over the years our network is software. Define which means that you know. Our our network is very much suffering able which means that we see surges and that were traffic. We anticipate them. We model them so our core network is under what we would call software defined control as many other areas of the network and what this really enables us to do is rapidly respond to surge as anticipate any security concerns and we can flex to our customers needs wherever we wherever we see them. You know the network is is really purpose built for this and You know when I think about the network and the services and support that we provided is the connectivity. But it's also the the people around that connectivity. We have in my view. The world's best engineers and network architects. Who tirelessly stay ahead of the technology curve here to make sure that our network is scalable reliable Secure Right that. Our customers are connected protected at all times. You know as a society when I think about where we are right now at this point in time with nineteen we have never had this many people working remotely. You know We've never had this kind of broad scale around the globe. A need for additional Dan with We've never had this. Many hospitals preparing for growing needs or school systems right in mass Moving to remote learning it does if I could give you a couple of stats here of some dimensionality to what we're seeing. So if I if I look back at this Monday this Monday for us March twenty third are wireless of voice minutes of use. Were up thirty nine percent compared to an average Monday Our WIFI calling minutes of us were seventy eight percent higher than average Monday if I look at our consumer home business are consumer voice calling up forty five percent and our core network which includes.

"Allies are over. I noticed at our normal. For for down downtown Manhattan Jolt Colas. Yes it walk unreal normally cetera. Sticking out so that type of trend is continuing to sort of provide more high value type of insights. that sticks out from day to day. Tap operations to read understand okay. How can we help them? Build the right type of Netra calvary showroom will do what type of device more than they should Beth on in the marketing campaigns on these topics inside. So I think it's more going towards automate all this other basic type. Walberg steps you can. So what made the whatever we can So be taught skills to make sure that you have expertise teams in bright decided to focus on the tricky parts. And that's where I think out of solutions here coming in that we bring them type of insights that they should don't spend the focus on whether Oba's cannot fix it maybe future that's the The town we're seeing that they don't have moral basic stuff or getting automated torture different notes or upgrades and all the basics. Things are getting more. And more automated. Which freeze up time for their no smart guys to really think over ninety one loss on a bulky? I wonder if you could just quickly wrap up for us with regard to the whole topic of partnerships. I know there's a lot of focus on enterprise offerings. And and certainly what comes beyond Mobile Brandon as the final question to? You is wonderful if you could maybe just give us a quick summary uncountable position around partnerships. And what's happening in the enterprise space and we see that going in the next year so if I look at what we do in Ericsson is on the we are working through our our customers and they then sell to to the enterprise our go to market modem however in order for us to understand how anti I think we have a lot of partnership with enterprises and we may be for instance. How you run in mind. How you're on your manufacturing plants and coal industry and so forth to understand okay. How can five technologies help this kind of industries in order to be more productive and how they can automate further they are sort of saying activities and I believe that's important for us because in the past we have been so focused on? Let's say consumers right and the normal using a bunch of they every monster extremely made you know wanted to have this kind of capability in. We need to understand. Exactly what are the requirements from this kind of industries in order for them to more? From instance maybe a wide. Line connection to a wireless connection and I believe that has been very useful for us in order to understand how we are. We this lead to sign our products that we make them very secure in order to really take these kind of critical at tasks and where failure is not an option. And it's been a good exit. Feeds GONNA make citing spices because I imagine you're things like autonomous cars and drawings and other things I imagine the enterprises and out looking at things in such different way that they're coming at you with innovations. We haven't even imagined that as that of George jetsons type era stuff that we thought was never gonNA happen like flying cars and now people seeming. Things can be done for five G. that that we probably didn't imagine and I'm sure that can be the case right. Yeah I also saw that. We need to help pay. The price said be successful to make it easier for them. They don't know Mobile Technology. Really Rights as we need to have different kinds of support systems. That seem to understand what's going on and really guide them what actions to take in case something doesn't work properly right so it's the it's also shift. I believe from an operative perspective moving into this kind of technology. I see it's a to Dork even more with okay. How do we prepare our? That's the infrastructure to deploy cloud native and etta questions. How do we prepare our staff? In order to have more quick turnaround on software upgrades doing more continuous integration continuous deployment though software really here operators also have an exciting journey ahead in order to be really prepared for the five core and indeed my mind moguls and as as you say we could do a whole show on each of these topics too. I know we're coming up the but Fulke and Thomas. Thank you so much for making time available to catch up when they congratulations on some of the amazing innovations that you're cheating now and I'm always breathlessly excited about what's coming at us of the next year or so just out of Ericsson line and and what you're making possible with some of the new and innovative ways that carries an operators can offer services that It's kind of like. I almost got wait for the next year. But I don't WanNa do that because it'll h me quickly but fogy Thomas. Thank you so much for making time to catch me aptly pleasure and I look forward to catching up with you both in person real soon and maybe get you on camera. Thank you very much thank you. Fantasy will have a great day. And we'll chat again soon and folks. Thanks for tuning in. I'm does Blanche. Woody hosts this is conversations with. Dez and we'll see in the show thanks again..

"Had some help from from from computers and technology and everything to help them make an informed decision or the right decision or or or better decision? And that's where I think again. This digitalization is really going to help them there. And then I think you know the point is that it's really it's really heterogeneous. I think there's there's going to be data and information coming from all sorts of areas here and you've got to have kind of this ubiquitous this platform this ecosystem to be able to consume all these different different a data repositories these different sources of data. So they can feed that feedback clinician with the right information and this is where again we need to have. Great Technology partners that are connecting facilitate that. They're flexible enough to be able to pull that information from the different areas. And then you have these great clinical algorithms that CNN actually leverage all that data and then and then make the right decision for for for the patient. Indeed Industry you here. We have a thing called the flying Doctor Service because the sixth largest piece of dirt on the planet. Twenty five million people where we're quite well spread out and so often. People live on farms remote areas or country towns. Where there just isn't a doctor and we have to fly the pick them up and bring him back to the city's imagine this is now going to kind of shrink the world and create the small village mentality that whole world is connected and digital anyway can bring these skills one of the things. I was fascinated about with and I thought about the relationship. You've you've formed now where you're working so closely with Intel is. Is it fair to say that? Now you've got the to kind of open the door in the same well. Siemens and Siemens health and he has had a whole range of challenges that you've put interests it help us solve these. Imagine now you kind of ask them well. What else haven't we thought token sort of Wilkins they will. Have you considered this? So have you seen this technology just built this? Imagine now you can flip the coin in that you've gone to challenges and they've helped you solve them and you've got democracy early probably done it at a fraction of the cost if you had to build yourself self but now. I imagine you'll kind of asking them. What other things can you do to help us differentiate? Yeah absolutely I mean. It really is here as as we talked about earlier. Health healthcare is playing a little bit of catch-up relates to technology here. So we're we're now kind of embracing and trying to figure out how we can leverage all these technological advances topic click ai and whatnot but again from from Intel's perspective and in other in other disciplines you know. Technology has been used quite prevalent through throughout other industries here. So we're we're we're turning to our partners in Intel and saying you know. Hey where where? Some other places that we can apply. Apply your great technology towards in the healthcare space. And you talked about earlier. Does you know about about reaching remote patients and cannot remote areas of the country. Or How do you get? How do you get clinical specialty? Special specialist to those areas. I mean with with the help it Intel. We're now we're now actually putting together solutions where we can. We can remotely operate some of our imaging equipment or some of our. You know therapy procedure equipment off from a remote location so being able to kind of say you know. That patient doesn't have to be flown into the big city to have that procedure of that exam done. Let's let's let them go to this the community hospital and then we'll have our specialist doctor who's who. Who is you know? Who's the expert there being able to remotely controlled control the The scanner or remotely troll the therapy device there and again this is. He's our visa great concepts that that I think Siemens when necessarily thought on their own. And you know what the Hell intone insult? Kind of saying look in in other industries you know kind of remote access. Computing Industries is norm. You know you can actually apply that into the healthcare space and we've got the technology that enables that you know it's it's fun. Great conversations happier that actually turned into something You know again beneficial for the patient. Indeed I mean I'm studying thinking about what we've been doing. Vpn technology forever email web browsing? Why could we use that With with Intel's VPN secure encrypted technology just to get data across from from remote site to special still multiples. But also what doing chip level around things like mobile devices an in Car Technology. Now make it health related. I wonder if we could maybe wrap up with one last thing. I liked to US my guests to do and that is that when we think about all the things you've done here and congratulations on an amazing success stories. They found with seem as healthy as I think. It's an exciting concept to my mind is kind of like a stop legacy in many ways and that we still fintech within banks. We saw all these other spaces Piven applies digital thinking to legacy environments. I think it's an a phenomenal success. Story the the pot and got into bed with Intel and and looked at leveraging strings particularly leveraging. What until does the so broadened deepen every space. If I was to ask you one last question. I'd love to hand Your Crystal Ball. A virtual crystal say could you guys into this and just for a moment ponder where we are now twenty twenty if we wouldn't look at an x three to five years. I mean it's a very big fundamental shifts around mobility and enterprise mobility something in traditional enterprise. Space I can see this coming into health. I can see all the things. You're working around with remote imaging an onsite imaging processing. I can imagine that as you said before. If you've got something where a machine learning model is being applied to particular thing with ten fifteen someone might say. Well I WANNA run a thousand years with analysis on this. We'll just stand up a thousand cores in the cloud bound by Intel. And see what happens. It's going to cost six dollars. I would say yes do that. But advise the DP decision whether it's with your vice president of business development at digital health healthy or not in the next three to five years. What are some of the big trends you think are gonNA come out around? What's possible how we're gonNA see things pivot because one of the things I'd love to do is give people come a couple of takeaway thoughts that they can then look at actioning You know do they have a great strategy in place said they got the right skill sets has HR department thought about this. Imagine given the year literally the bleeding edge. You a better position than almost anyone I've met for a while on the planet was sort of think about what's coming horizon. And what should people be thinking about? Yeah I mean I you know for for me personally I you know I see I see a big push especially in the healthcare space around personalized medicine. We touched on it a little bit here with with some of the solutions that we're working on it. Siemens but but I think again this concept of a personalized medicine. So it's not only finding kind of the right diagnosis and Whatnot. But it's also getting trying to create that personalized therapy plan. That's really optimized for for the individual here so stabbed like platforms that again really ingesting. Large amounts of data to be able to kind of figure out almost create. Kind of almost. Like a bit of of of you're me right there this digital twin concept that we talked about earlier. But but the whole reason why there's this concept the digital twenty and everything is because we're we're trying to push towards the concept of personalized medicine. So wouldn't it be great if I have a twin of Dez that I could actually then try out different different therapies to see which one is the most effective to declare the ailment that you have but in order to do that from a practical standpoint. It's going to require a lot amount and data and that data has to be really in kind of a discreet or curated form and what I mean by. That is kind of being A. It's gotta be in a form where we could extract that information and do something with it and I think that's a challenge rate that we have today from a practical sense with with all these new emerging technologies especially in healthcare as they're relying a lot on on on data but data may not actually be in that discreet or curated. Form that these algorithms and everything need you know. They might be just kind of buried. Might be just kind of like a scion of of of a patient history. You know that or a photo or something of that sort and and what we really want to do is trying to pull out all those different data elements and make them kind of discreet in interior basically finding meaning behind all that all that all that data so one of the one of the things that that practically needs to be done today is kind of making sure that data becomes an accessible in easily able to index and search and be able to pull out all the right pieces of information and arguably especially healthcare. A lot of that data is is not in that form today. You know a lot of providers say oh. Yeah we've accumulated history of ten twenty years worth of data. Whatever but you know if those those pieces of data again are just scans of a paper there. You're going to be difficult to to pull out what that clinical meaning is so so I think what what can be done right now is really kind of you know making the data accessible and preparing the information so that we can feed some of these new technologies in the future. This is this is something that's going to be a big challenge but something that If if done correctly then you can leverage all these great these great new and emerging technologies. That are happening today. Indeed and I had a startup of my own years ago where we were doing digital transmissions for healthcare environments. Bigly age care and I'd horror scenario around what you're just talking about with the protection data. Where an H? Person had to get their records and IT TURNS OUT. It wasn't in a cardboard box in a in a compactness storage space in the building. It was in a forty foot shipping container behind the healthcare center and had rained and everything in there. Turner Pep couldn't get the person's record so they had to go through all the scans and all tests again even though they didn't charge him a second time. Just the pain the drama. But I had this mental picture when you're talking about digital twins eventually having seem insulting year Intel palled Tamagotchi of myself. Which which I look forward to. I can't wait to download. Install the temperature of diz and track myself in keeping myself to make sure I'm healthy. Peter's has been absolutely fantastic spin and now with you thank you so much.

"That that's where we're headed. That's the future and Certainly from my point of view without leaning forward on that on automation and Diagnostics and also the things as the date is clearly telling us People are looking for Then that then that will not allow you to transform and so that's where everyone we won't added And if you're not doing it that's something you should Consider doing as you move forward indeed. I think there's a famous Amos lineup forgot who used it was one of those things where they said something. Do you think that Organizations who adopted technology early invariably get such a lead over their competitors competitors competitors might never catch up gentleman's been an absolute pleasure to to catch up with you both and thank you so much making time to catch me and join me in the show. I've really enjoyed that gleaning. The share here and have absolutely loved reading this daddy of published in the book and Felicitous who haven't yet had the opportunity. Please do make a note to visit APPs associates website or follow him on various social media platforms to be linked or twitter or whatever your favorite platform is and look for the tunnel advance guide for Article Application Management Twenty Twenty optimization trends and recommendations it's it's a must read and I recommend that you get your hands on puppy but share it within your teams and by all means I'm sure connect with a poll. VN and Bill Salty's and pose your curly tricky questions at them both. I know there's an amazing conversation going online. There and as bill just to allude to this is a conversation that's happening whether joining or not gentlemen absolute pleasure and hopefully have the pleasure of having on this show again soon. Very appreciative event as day A.. And folks thanks for tuning in we'll see next conversations of Dez I'm your host. Does blanchard have a great day. Evening Order might be. And we'll see again soon.

They're all a position where they're looking at how they on board new error hires and we can call that millennials eales we can think about it as retrainees people from different areas or different skill sets that are moving in technology or maybe moving from distributed or some other area into mainframe. There is actually some data that is displaying. The needle is being moved that we are addressing that kind of impending shortage welcome to another conversations with Dez. I'm your host does launch field tonight. I have the privilege of being joined in the studio by two amazing guests from broadcom from Bronze Mainframe Division. We'll get into that number more. We're GONNA have a great conversation about what's happening. In the space of what we're terming skills crisis.
