Last month, I sat down to chat with HPE’s Vice President and Cloud Strategist, Robert Christiansen, for an interview as part of our Futurum Tech Podcast Interview Series. We had a great discussion about the state of hybrid cloud and the issues it creates for companies operating in today’s digital transformation. The key points of our discussion revolved around the pulse survey we did with HPE on hybrid cloud — for a deeper dive into the research findings, be sure to listen to the podcast or read the transcript.

Walmart is taking on Amazon, Facebook, and Google with its new ad platform. That makes perfect sense. And it’s not the only place where Walmart is innovating to transform retail.
