Brad Anderson’s Lunch Break / s8 e7 / Jay Emery, Anheuser-Busch InBev – #Microsoft

Today Brad meets up with Jay Emery, the Senior Director of Global IT Architecture at the world’s largest brewer – Anheuser-Busch InBev.

These two surprisingly similar looking guys talk about the “Beer Garage” Jay occupies in Silicon Valley, and Jay describes how he has seen IT evolve from order-taker to business-evolver by focusing on how to move the business forward instead of making incremental upgrades. His advice: Don’t talk about technology; talk about capabilities.

Jay also demonstrates an all-galaxy level beer of knowledge during an intense game of “Brew of False.”
