Tech accelerating supply chain evolution
26:41Shipping and logistics are the core of the supply chain and digital transformation could have a massive impact, but it’s not a simple transition. Analyst Mark Fontecchio and Eric Johnson from the Journal of Commerce return to discuss study results and the activities taking place at the TPM and TPM Tech conferences with host Eric Hanselman. It’s a business that has been information-heavy, but technology challenged. Perennial problems in skills and scale are holding them back.
Data challenges in volatile markets
28:02Data can be a powerful tool to gain competitive advantage, but to put it to work, organizations needs skills and technologies that can be hard to acquire. Research analyst Paige Bartley and head of channels David Coluccio join host Eric Hanselman to discuss the implications of their recent webinar that offered some perspectives and paths forward for organizations that are struggling in the journey to better digitization.

Energy and innovation at CERAWeek
31:39Breaking through boundaries and sparking innovation has been the hallmark of the CERAWeek conference for almost two decades and this year it arrives with a world that’s in much greater turmoil but one where innovation offers greater hope. Analysts Gabrielle Brown, Jonathan Schroth and Johan Vermij are chairing panels at the conference and exploring what they’ll be discussing with host Eric Hanselman. Crypto energy use, generative manufacturing and quantum are all on: https://ceraweek.com/
M&A in Focus: the new normal?
27:54The technology landscape has been transformed, and not for the better. Brenon Daly returns to deliver a dour outlook on M&A prospects with host Eric Hanselman. Will a macroeconomic woodchuck nip the buds of an M&A spring? Private equity has pulled back, and some previous mega-deals may get unwound. The technology market is looking to just get through the current situation and move forward to better times. The webinar has more detail under events here: https://spglobal.com/Datathatdelivers
Data in AI
26:48Hidden behind all of the buzz around ChatGPT is the dependence on the nature and quality of the data that built the models that run it. Peter Licursi and Chris Tanner join host Eric Hanselman to discuss how data drives the model’s capabilities, but can also create unwanted bias and scaling issues driven by the large compute requirements. Is generative AI the single most compelling piece of computational technology that humanity has seen? So much of what it can do comes down to the data.
Super Bowl games, gaming and ads
19:03The Super Bowl is coming up and there’s a lot that’s changing beyond just the teams that are playing. Justin Nielson and Scott Robson join host Eric Hanselman to examine the changes in advertising, the growth of gaming as it fills the holes left by crypto and the lack of streaming options. The linear version of the event gets a technology boost with the latest over the air digital video standard. There will still be beer commercials, but they’ll be different, too. There’s also a football game.
Data on Datacenters
26:11Infrastructure supporting technology is often hidden from sight. Understanding fundamentals, such as where the datacenters are that house so much of what we work with every day can be a complex exercise. A source of clarity is the Datacenter Knowledgebase and analyst Stefanie Williams joins host Eric Hanselman to look at what it is and how it’s used. Capacity and resource consumption for ESG tracking are just a start. http://www.spglobal.com/marketintelligence/en/campaigns/2023-trends-in-tech
The future of practical AI
29:48For our 100th episode, analysts Nick Patience and Dan Thompson rejoin host Eric Hanselman to look at practical things that we can do with AI tools today. Improving the quality of astrophotographic images is a complex task that AI approaches have radically simplified and enhanced. Coupling natural language processing, as ChatGPT has done at OpenAI, opens new uses. AI driven models have taken speech synthesis to levels where it might even be hard to tell which is the real podcast host...
Like Vegas, CES is back!
25:28The regular glitz and hype of Las Vegas was kicked up a notch with the Consumer Electronics Show, now just CES, debuting the latest in technology. Analyst Neil Barbour joins host Eric Hanselman to look at what was more of an incremental step up, as the event returned to its pre-pandemic size. The crowds were back, but there were fewer mind-bending innovations, as automotive and industrial collaborations took the spotlight and display technologies improved. And yes, there was a lot of metaverse…
Quantum is not boring
24:00New technologies cycle through visibility phases, surfacing when breakthroughs are made, and quantum computing has just had a number. Still, the buzziness of the previous year seems to have faded. Is quantum getting boring? Analyst Gabriella Brown joins host Eric Hanselman to discuss why it’s not. New records have been set in qubit counts, and practical applications are flowering. Growing numbers of tools make it easier to put quantum to work, and more businesses are harnessing its possibilities.
