1466: An AI Recommendation Engine for Technical Support
When something goes wrong, tech teams don't have the luxury of logging a support ticket. When I heard about Peritus, an AI recommendation for technical support, I felt compelled to find out more. Robin Purohit is the co-founder and CEO of, a Bay area startup that is tackling technical support for developers and engineers. He was previously a senior executive at BMC and HP Software, where he led multi-billion dollar business units for IT management, application delivery, and security. AI chatbots for customer support are getting significant attention and investment in industries ranging from retail to financial services to employee help desks. However, an important area neglected is support for engineers and developers who are driving IT innovation. These technical users have little patience for pre-wired chatbots without industry context and view opening a support ticket as the last resort. Instead, they look for insights from trusted experts on Community Forums, such as Stack Overflow or vendor-sponsored communities. When done well, community forums can create both user loyalty and deflect costly support cases. Peritus, an AI recommendation engine for support automation, recently announced the results of its first IT Industry Forum Benchmark that examined over 12 million posts and responses on over 50 leading IT industry forums for vendors and open source technologies such as Cisco, MongoDB, and Kubernetes. The benchmark study zeroed in on four key metrics: * The number of posts that were resolved * How quickly the average length to resolve each post was resolved. * Whether posts were resolved by the first response, * How many experts answered the bulk of the questions.

E044 - Securing Angular Apps with the Microsoft Identity Platform
Securing your Angular application is almost always necessary. And, it's almost always unnecessary for you to roll your own solution to authentication and security. Why? First, security is not easy and straight-forward. At first, you might be tempted to think, "Well, it's just a form with two fields, email, and a password, right?" Not really. Securing your app is complex, constantly evolving, and is critical to your application. Finally, implementing your own OAuth-based social account authentication can be mundane, and perhaps even trivial. You, your team, and your organization should prioritize what you know and do best: building your app. While there are many identity providers to choose from, Angular Show panelists Jeniffer Wadella and Brian Love wanted to learn more about the solution provided by Microsoft. So, we sat down with Christos Matskas from the Microsoft Identity Product Group to learn more. Microsoft Azure provides a robust infrastructure and tooling for securing Angular applications. And getting started only requires an Azure account and your existing knowledge of Angular. First, you register your Angular application, then you can configure your Angular application using the Microsoft Authentication Library for JavaScript. The Microsoft Identity Product Group team has also built a wrapper on top of the JS library specifically for Angular, making it very easy to install and import the necessary module into your Angular application's root module to configure your application. The team also provides plenty of source code examples in their documentation specific to Angular. Using Microsoft Identity platform, you can rest assured that your application is secure, and the security of your application is following best practices from security experts. Join us as we learn about the benefits of using an identity provider, the specific implementation of using Microsoft Azure identity solution with Angular, and how you can get started.

The Siemens-SAP partnership explained - a chat with Joe Bohman and Keith Zobott
Siemens and SAP announced a very significant partnership last year.  My colleague, and occasional podcast guest Richard Howells wrote a nice explainer about the partnership which is also worth checking out, as is this quick video. The partnership helps organisations accelerate time to value by enabling a digital thread throughout the manufacturing lifecycle, so  I invited Joe Bohman Senior Vice President at Siemens' Digital Industries Software and Keith Zobott Global Vice President of Digital Products & Projects at SAP to come on the podcast to talk about it. We had a great discussion about the partnership. I learned loads, and I hope you do too. If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page, head on over to the new Digital Supply Chain podcast forum, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn. Audio messages will get played (unless you specifically ask me not to). To learn more about how Industry 4.0 technologies can help your organisation read the 2020 global research study 'The Power of change from Industry 4.0 in manufacturing' ( And if you want to know more about any of SAP's Digital Supply Chain solutions, head on over to and if you liked this show, please don't forget to rate and/or review it. It makes a big difference to help new people discover it. Thanks. And remember, stay healthy, stay safe, stay sane!

TEI 317: Culture, teams, and leadership
Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you the next episode of... The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD. The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers. About the Episode:  This podcast is getting a new name to better align with its purpose of helping product managers become product masters. That new name is Product Masters Now. You don’t need to do anything to keep listening, but I want you to know the name change is coming in a few weeks, and it will show up in your podcast player not as The Everyday Innovator but as Product Masters Now. This is another episode in the series on a product management body of knowledge curated by the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA). If you are unfamiliar with PDMA, it is the longest running volunteer-led professional association for product managers, existing since 1976. I’ve been publishing this series every-other-week, starting with episode 307, which was an introduction to the body of knowledge. Today we cover topics related to culture, teams, and leadership, which are essential to forming and maintaining an innovative environment that enables, encourages, and rewards product management and innovation processes and practices. Our guest is Dr. Teresa Jurgens-Kowal, founder of Global NP Solutions, which helps individuals and organizations learn, adopt, transform, and sustain innovation. Previously, she worked in R&D, process technology development, and as an internal innovation expert at ExxonMobil Chemical Company.

Inside the Mind of Glenn Beck, You Find…Walt Disney and Orson Welles?
Contact: Original: “When I turned 30, I knew my life was at a crossroads. It was either over, or I was going to restart.” – Glenn Beck [9:10] The goal of my blog and podcast is to push you outside of your comfort zone and force you to question assumptions. This is why I invite divergent thinkers and world-class performers who often disagree. I might interview Tony Robbins and then Matt Mullenweg. Or I might have a long chat with Sam Harris, PhD, and later invite a seemingly opposite guest like… Glenn Beck. This interview is a wild ride, and it happened — oddly enough — thanks to a late-night sauna session. I was catching up with an old friend, who is mixed-race, a Brown University grad, and liberal in almost every sense of the word. I casually asked him, “If you could pick one person to be on the podcast, who would it be?” “Glenn Beck,” he answered without a moment’s hesitation. “His story is FASCINATING.” He described how Glenn hit rock bottom and restarted his life in his 30’s, well past the point most people think it possible. Fast forward to 2014, Forbes named him to their annual Celebrity 100 Power List and pegged his earnings at $90 million for that year. This placed him ahead of people like Mark Burnett, Jimmy Fallon, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Will Smith. Glenn’s platforms — including radio, tv, digital (, publishing, etc. — get somewhere between 30 and 50 million unique visitors per month. This interview is neither a “gotcha” interview nor a softball interview. I ask some tough questions (e.g. “If you were reborn as a disabled gay woman in a poor family, what political system would you want in place?”), but my primary goal is to pull out routines, habits, books, etc. that you can use. This show is about actionable insight, not argument for argument’s sake. First and foremost, this is a story of entrepreneurship, and whether you love Glenn, hate Glenn, or have never heard his name, there is a lot to learn from him.
