Hybrid Cloud and IBM Watson's Cognitive Services

In this episode of Software Architecture Concepts Podcast, we have Will Chaparro from the Watson team at IBM. Will, probably against the wishes of the overlords at IBM, shares with us the secret ways that Watson is planning on taking over the most cognitive functions currently employing humanity. We will hope to keep this episode up as long as we can before the overlords discover it! Also revealed in this episode is the actual meaning of Hybrid cloud, why would you want to use a hybrid cloud, what are the drawbacks to using a hybrid cloud, hybrid cloud architecture considerations. We also tackle the big question: Is it drastically easier for enterprises to move to the cloud these days?
