Join Tim Huckaby, Founder of InterKnowlogy and Actus Software, and Andrew Brust, Founder/CEO of Blue Badge Insights, as they discuss their perceptions from the Build 2011 Conference. Andrew currently helps customers and partners of Microsoft understand how to strategically work with the Microsoft stack from a business perspective. Andrew also sits on the Business Intelligence Partner Advisory Council helping to guide Microsoft in the BI Platform with realistic market feedback. With the coming release of Windows 8, there will be a real importance placed on the enterprise side of the business along with the developer side.

This is a great interview to catch to get a feel for what's coming with Windows 8!
