Soundbytes #013: Hitachi Vantara with Greg Knieriemen

Chris EvansSoundbytes

In this quick podcast, recorded live at Commvault GO 2017, Chris talks to Greg Knieriemen, Technology Evangelist with Hitachi Vantara.  Hitachi recently merged the HDS (Hitachi Data Systems), Pentaho and Hitachi Insight Group brands together into a single entity, Hitachi Vantara.

The new company will focus more on data and IoT, as Greg explains.  Unfortunately the recording terminated early, so we lost about a minute of wrap up and some of the conversation with Max Mortillaro, who joined us at the beginning of the recording.
