Microsoft and IBM have teamed up to help customers with their hybrid cloud journey. To discuss the details, I spoke with Chris McGuire, General Manager of Global Microsoft Partnership for IBM Consulting, and Ricardo Davila, Global Sales and Cloud Leader at Microsoft.
Among the topics we discussed:
- In the past, IBM and Microsoft have been competitors in some sectors. What’s driving the current IBM-Microsoft partnership?
- I know that IBM and Microsoft are working together to support companies seeking to accelerate their cloud journey. What are some of the offerings or joint solutions you’re working on to help with that acceleration?
- When it comes to cloud adoption, are you seeing certain industries struggle or face barriers? And what does the IBM-Microsoft partnership bring to the table to help these industries?
- Over the next few years, how do you see the IBM-Microsoft partnership evolving? What do future priority areas look like? Sustainability? Security?
