About this Episode

With a new CEO and president at IBM, we talk about what’s been going on good and bad at IBM in recent years. Big bets were made and that whole cloud things overshadowed things. We also talk about the mysteries of private equity, here what Thoma Bravo has done to make billions of dollars of Dynatrace and Compuware. Finally, we briefly talk about the whole microservices and serverless are silly trend - monoliths rule! (Oh, and some small Java talk.)

(Sorry there’s so much high-volume on Coté's end. Hopefully your ear-holes won’t hurt too much. Coté needs to get a new pop-filter.)
