Kip Compton has an interesting story. He’s an MIT grad, he was raised by a mom that was a computer programmer back when pretty much nobody’s mom was a computer programmer, and he’s Cisco’s VP of Cloud and Platform Services, which gives him loads of interesting insight into the state of cloud today. Tune in to Episode 3 of Cloud Unfiltered to hear what Kip has to say about:

  • How he got into tech
  • Why he’s led so many different groups at Cisco
  • How the cloud conversation has changed over the past year and why that’s so important
  • The difference between hybrid cloud and hybrid IT
  • Why security, performance analytics, and the network are critical to hybrid IT
  • Why the winners in the cloud transition will be the ones who master culture change
  • What Cisco has to offer companies as they embrace the cloud
