30: Episode 30: IBM buys Instana, Salesforce may be buying Slack, AWS takes down a big chunk of the web (again) — and we are all thankful for Slack and Zoom

IBM buys Instana — what does this mean for the monitoring market

Is this a sign of more monitoring deals to come?

What does this mean for adoption? Did Teams steal Slack’s growth, or did they fumble execution all by themselves? And what does this mean for Zoom? With everyone working from home, we have not seen a real change in remote working compared to before; Slack & Zoom are still Slack & Zoom, just with more people.
