How Wipro is Dealing with the Effects of COVID-19
The effects of the coronavirus on technology will be studied for years to come. The ways people responded and new directions companies took are creating a new normal. IT leaders were forced to build more robust, resilient, secure data systems that support remote working. Global IT service providers were on the front lines to help businesses take on challenges brought by the pandemic. Wipro, based in Bangalore, India, touch more than a million users. When a million users needed to suddenly work from home, Wipro made that happen even though they, too, were working from home. Wipro advises companies to take a holistic approach to manage the technical challenges of enabling remote workers during and after the global health crisis. “There is a huge urgency to reimagine the workspace,” said Satish Yadavalli, vice president for global cloud and infrastructure services (CIS) at Wipro Limited. “Because of the lockdown, none of our finance folks could come to the office,” Yadavalli said. “So, we had to deliver them access to all mission-critical ERP and financial tools from home. Within 12 hours, we were able to enable access to all these applications safely and securely to all our finance executives.” Follow the enterprise cloud tech revolution at The Forecast by Nutanix.

Seeing the Future of Spatial Technologies with Robert Scoble
Lopez: I still can’t get past the idea that I’m talking to a toaster. Scoble: Yeah. You’re talking to millions of toasters. That’s the breakthrough, right? When you’re talking to a Tesla, you’re not talking just to one chip, you’re talking to 800,000 cars that are driving around with cameras on them, and all of the centralized computers that they have up in the data center… it’s the connectedness that brings the power to it. This is one of the many exchanges in this wide ranging interview with Robert Scoble on VR and spatial computing. Robert has immersed himself in spatial computing and reports that a satisfying user experience is just around the corner. Whether people will immediately adopt it might be another matter. Listen to the podcast to hear Robert’s current thinking on the state of VR, AR and other spatial technologies. Robert is the co-author of “The Infinite Retina: Spatial Computing, Augmented Reality, and how a collision of new technologies are bringing about the next tech revolution.” Follow the enterprise cloud tech revolution at The Forecast by Nutanix.

Bank of America Securities Interviews Nutanix CEO Dheeraj Pandey
The key idea behind data center virtualization has been ”no change to the application, no change to the operating system,” according to Nutanix CEO Dheeraj Pandey, in an investor call with Bank of America Securities. This has been the philosophy behind the shift to virtual machines and as well as in storage, Pandey said. “I think we now have to virtualize the entire data center and use lift and shift with this assertion: no change to the application, no change to the operating system. But now there’s a third one, no change to IT workflows.” This set up his vision for how Nutanix helps businesses and organizations move to hybrid cloud IT, where on-premises data centers and multiple public cloud services combine seamlessly. Making all of these technologies work together seamlessly is one of the IT industry’s biggest challenges in decades. In this podcast, a replay of Bank of America Securities’ June 30, 2020 “View from Top, CEO Insight Call,” Bank of America Senior Tech Analyst Wamsi Mohan talks with Pandey about Nutanix’s products and services, its prospects in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, marketshare and the competitive landscape. Pandey explains the company’s strategies to service clients in whatever cloud environment they work in from public clouds to private clouds and hybrid clouds. When asked about the company’s subscription model Pandey painted the picture of three main factors in enterprise software. “One of the trifectas that will define the computing architecture for the enterprise will be ‘laws of the land,’” he said. “Compliance and sovereignty is king, especially as we see globalization being redefined in the last three years.” Then there are laws of physics, Pandey said. “If you’re going to generate a kind of data at the edge, then you cannot backhaul all that stuff to a large data center.” And third, he cited the laws of economics. “There are things that are predictable that are much cheaper to own than to rent,” Pandey added. “We have built an amazingly agnostic architecture with subscription, where we don’t care. And our sellers wouldn’t care whether our licenses are being run on prem or off prem. And in many ways, the thing is going to come back to, business wise, do we have an architecture that will not take sides in whether it’s going to run at the edge, run in the private cloud or run in the public cloud.

COVID-19 Has Given Us a New Normal
There’s practically no debate that some new ways of living and working will be with us long after the pandemic has ended. This is the mindset of the one the world’s biggest IT services companies, Tata Consultancy Services also known as TCS. The company has nearly half a million workers worldwide. Before COVID-19, 20 percent of its employees worked, to some degree, at home. After the pandemic hit it’s been 90 percent. And it hasn’t been cost-effective primarily because the coronavirus hit without warning. But TCS sees the work from home model as a long term trend and is making investments in its own workforce as well as in its services to client companies. We spoke with Raman Venkatraman, who heads the high tech and professional services business unit at TCS, about the company’s response to the pandemic and its impact on TCS and customers. And we chatted about the idea of COVID-19 fostering a new normal and how companies can treat this not as an ongoing emergency, but as an opportunity to innovate, compete and lead.
