Ashish Kuthiala is a senior director for HP Enterprise, overseeing the organization's DevOps portfolio. We talked to him about the transformation of enterprise architectures toward technologies that support a more nimble, agile DevOps stance -- a change that Kuthiala says will ultimate impact everyone in a company: not just developers and operations people, but marketing, customer care, and even accounting and finance.

Plus, we tell you what to think about the tech impact of Brexit, Pinterest's new "shopping bag" and visual search features, and the advent of personal chatbots just for you.
