Join us for a look back on the themes and concepts covered in this year’s ISG Smartalks™ podcast series. Barry Matthews and his guests, Eleanor Winn and Bryn Barlow of ISG, reflect on where we’ve been and what we can take away.
Over the course of the series, the podcast has covered diverse technology-related themes that have informed, entertained and inspired listeners. Discussions with guests have explored subjects from blockchain, sourcing, automation and artificial intelligence, to 5G networks, the future of work, service orchestration and the digitization of business, and drawn on the experience of experts from a variety of industries and backgrounds.
Join Barry, Eleanor and Bryn on their journey through the episodes as they discuss the technologies that have had the biggest personal and professional influence, those that promised much but delivered little and those that they believe will have the greatest effect on business over the next 10 years, along with favorite technology gadgets and heroes.
