Conversations and market awareness
Mark, Fantastic podcast to stay up to speed with data & analytics market, and vendor roadmaps. I particularly like your questions around problems that specific tools try to solve as well as those around comparison with similar tools.
Stand out episodes for me have been the ones with Colin Zima, Mike Ferguson and Stewart Bryson. The one on Snowplow hit home as I am currently working on similar analytic domains.
