Hello. My name is Bill Schmarzo and I'm the chief technology officer of IOT and analytics at Hitachi Vantara. I'm also a professor at the university of San Francisco where I teach a class called the big data MBA and also an honorary professor to national university of Ireland in Galloway. But some of you may know me as the Dean of big data and hopefully you follow me on Twitter at @Schmarzo, I'm the only one there. I'm very excited to be able to offer to you a series of podcasts about what our customers are doing around DataOps, in particular, how they're using data ops as a discipline to help set the stage around data governments, data management, analytics, and data monetization. The DataOps is a very strategic initiative for organizations that are looking to drive return on their data. This podcast will feature a series of companies and we'll actually go along on the journey with them as they go down their path of trying to identify where and how to leverage DataOps to drive value out of their data.
