    EPISODE TRANSCRIPT
    Derek Robinson 00:00:03 Welcome to Data Points, a podcast by InterSystems Learning Services. Make sure to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast app. Links can be found at datapoints.intersystems.com. I'm Derek Robinson. And on today's episode, I'll chat with Product Manager Bob Kuszewski about Kubernetes and the InterSystems Kubernetes Operator.
    Derek Robinson 00:00:39 Welcome to the Data Points podcast by InterSystems Learning Services. On today's episode, we're joined by Bob Kuszewski, Product Manager for the Developer Experience here at InterSystems. Now about a year and a half ago, we had Luca Ravazzolo on the podcast to talk about Kubernetes, the open-source container orchestration platform. Now, at that time, the InterSystems Kubernetes Operator wasn't even released, and lots of strides have been made in cloud technology ever since. Today, Bob will talk with us about Kubernetes and some of its common use cases, as well as how the InterSystems Kubernetes Operator, or IKO, helps deploy InterSystems IRIS applications in Kubernetes clusters. And additionally, he'll also tell us a little bit about how Kubernetes compares with InterSystems Cloud Manager, or ICM. So without further ado, here's my interview with Bob.
    Derek Robinson 00:01:32 All right. And welcome to the podcast Bob Kuszewski, Product Manager for the Developer Experience here at InterSystems. Bob, How's it going?
    Bob Kuszewski 00:01:38 Good. How are you?
    Derek Robinson 00:01:39 Good. Your first time on the podcast? 
    Bob Kuszewski 00:01:41 It is!
    Derek Robinson 00:01:42 …and we're finally back in the office here. I've been doing remote podcast interviews for a while now. So this is very refreshing to do one in person and be able to both be sitting here at the mics and have a good conversation.
    Bob Kuszewski 00:01: It's exciting to be back.
    Derek Robinson 00:01:54 So today we're going to be talking about Kubernetes, and specifically the InterSystems Kubernetes Operator and a few other cloud topics around the InterSystems technology stack. Over a year ago, we did a podcast episode with Luca Ravazzolo, who talked to us about Kubernetes and what it was. And in that episode, we maybe had a few hints toward the Kubernetes Operator, but it was much earlier and maybe not even released yet at that time, I think.
    Bob Kuszewski 00:02:18 That's right. It wasn't out yet.
    Derek Robinson 00:02:20 So we figured it was overdue to do another episode and have a good conversation about that. So, starting from the 10,000-foot view, tell us a little bit about what Kubernetes is and where its place is in the market today when it comes to cloud technologies.
    Bob Kuszewski 00:02:31 Yeah. Kubernetes is this extensible open-source platform for maintaining and managing your workloads in the cloud. It is declaratively configured. It has a lot of automation built into it. This is how those websites that you go to that scale to infinity…this is how they all work. It's incredibly popular. It's really kind of taking over the world. One of the things that I love about it is that it's ubiquitous, and it's portable. So it runs on everything from edge cloud computing devices, like IOT devices—think of it that way—all the way up to giant…you know, Alibaba runs their whole website on it. You know Kelsey Hightower, who's a DevOps person, I think he's at Google Cloud now, you know, he describes it as it does all t

    Derek Robinson 00:00:02 Welcome to Data Points, a podcast by InterSystems Learning Services. Make sure to subscribe to the podcast on your favorite podcast app. Links can be found at datapoints.intersystems.com. I'm Derek Robinson. And on today's episode, I'll chat with Product Manager Benjamin De Boe about what's new and noteworthy in the 2021.1 release of InterSystems IRIS.
    Derek Robinson 00:00:39 Welcome to the Data Points podcast by InterSystems Learning Services. On today's episode, I'm welcoming back a familiar guest, if you're a regular listener of the podcast, and that is Benjamin De Boe. Benjamin will talk to us about the 2021.1 release of InterSystems IRIS. From analytics to business intelligence, to machine learning, to development gateways into FHIR improvements, Benjamin will walk us through all of the latest and greatest from the most recent release of InterSystems IRIS.
    Derek Robinson 00:01:12 All right, and welcome to the podcast, Benjamin De Boe, making what I think is your third podcast appearance now. So Benjamin, thanks for joining us.
    Benjamin De Boe 00:01:19 Pleasure, Derek. Thanks for having this.
    Derek Robinson 00:01:22 So today we're going to talk about the 2021.1 release of InterSystems IRIS, and kind of talk about what's in that, and what's exciting and what should be, you know, getting people's attention with this release. So, let's say I see you today in the elevator. You have 10 seconds to give me the rundown of what's new in this release of InterSystems IRIS. What would you say?
    Benjamin De Boe 00:01:40 That's unfair, you're on one of the highest floors of the building (laughs), but anyway. So I think the most important thing, or the most important leap forward that we made in this release is what we did in analytics. We've made really a lot of investments. We've introduced InterSystems IRIS Adaptive Analytics, which is a new add-on capability in this release. We've made IntegratedML, which we've talked about before, now a core part of the standard release. And we've also significantly upped our game in SQL to support analytical queries.
    Derek Robinson 00:02:09 Nice, nice. So you clocked in just in time there, but let's say now we're getting off at the same floor and you have a few more seconds to talk about some of this in more detail. So tell us a little bit about Adaptive Analytics. I know this has been mentioned; in one of our recent episodes, we talked about analytics and AI. Give us a little bit more of a breakdown of Adaptive Analytics, 'cause that's one of the big new things that pops out at me in that ten-second description.
    Benjamin De Boe 00:02:30 Yeah, absolutely, and it's probably worth its own dedicated podcast in a while, but essentially it enables customer to define their logical data model on top of data that's in their IRIS database, in business terms: so business measures, business dimensions, but it makes sense to business users and analysts. And then the technology in Adaptive Analytics takes care of mapping those business measures and business dimensions to whichever native format, their preferred tool of the day, for end-user data visualization or BI, prefers, but that could be Tableau, Power BI, even Excel, but also, many, many other BI tools. So because Adaptive Analytics takes care of that mapping of the business model to w
