About this Episode

With Coté worn out from travel and confused with expenses, we talk about the unique-ish problems of selling software to government agencies. There's 6 problems they have, and three types of motivation for changing up their enterprise software. We also (mostly ignorantly) talk about Cloudera and Hortonworks merging, as well as filing expenses.
