Launching the Enterprise Software Innovators Podcast
Today, I'm excited to announce the launch of Enterprise Software Innovators, co-hosted by Saam Motamedi, a general partner at Greylock Partners, and myself. In the first season, we chat with leading technology executives, who each offer an insider’s perspective into how disruptive and innovative technologies are deployed at scale within their organizations, as well as the hard-fought lessons learned during the process.
Why We’re Focused on Innovation in Enterprises
There is certainly no shortage of content about startups and the leaders behind them who are building innovative products and technologies. And while that content is incredibly important, it only covers half of the puzzle. Equally important are the examples of how these technologies are actually implemented in the real world, and the impact they have on their customers.
The application of exciting innovations at scale is where the true value lies, and we sought out a range of CIO and CTO guests from disparate specializations to help tell those stories with their behind-the-scenes experience.
An Inside View to Enterprise Innovation
The maiden launch of Enterprise Software Innovators features three episodes.
Episode 1 is a conversation with Michael Keithley, CIO of United Talent Agency, who has consistently been forward-thinking in his approach to utilizing technology in the entertainment industry.
Episode 2 features Shamim Mohammad, CIO and CTO of CarMax, who candidly shares how CarMax saw a changing landscape and disrupted their existing brick-and-mortar business to implement innovative digital solutions for their customers.
Episode 3 is with Jay Dominick, CIO of Princeton University, who shares examples of the unique technology challenges Princeton faced in the wake of COVID-19.
As we continue the podcast, you can expect to hear from guests from companies including Align Technologies, Workday, Box, and more.
