Podcast: Cisco’s Gidwani and VMware’s Gales

Podcast MicrophoneThe Podcast is back with a couple of big interviews this week.

  • Shanti Gidwani, senior director of healthcare at Cisco Systems, joins us to discuss the state of technology in healthcare in Canada, how buying patterns and decision ownership is evolving, and how Canadian solution providers can get on board. Where is healthcare spending its IT dollars today, and what are the priorities for the future? Find out from Shanti.
  • Eric Gales, president of VMware Canada, made a big splash with the hiring of Donna Wittmann as his company’s new channel chief. Gales had identified channel leadership as a key part of his strategy to build a more “made in Canada” VMware Canada. How does Wittmann fit into that plan, and how is the plan coming together? What are Wittmann’s priorities as she starts her new role? Gales discusses all this and more.
