I was recently honored to be a featured guest on IBM’s Big Data Podcast with David Pittman. The “Digitization of Everything” is quickly changing how organizations find, engage, and respond to their customers, and we dug into some of the ways this is playing out, and how organizations should be responding.

The podcast was a follow up to a fast moving Twitter chat I was asked to be a featured guest on about the same topic. There are a lot of good insights from an army of participants. You can find the curated highlights from the Twitter chat here

This post was provided as part of the IBM for Midsize Business program, which provides midsize businesses with the tools, expertise and solutions they need to become engines of a smarter planet. I’ve been compensated to contribute to this program, but the opinions expressed in this podcast are entirely my own and don’t necessarily represent, nor have they been influenced by IBM’s positions, strategies or opinions.
