Inspired Execution is a podcast series where DataStax Chairman and CEO Chet Kapoor interviews technology leaders from global enterprises on their journeys to scaling multi-billion dollar businesses while inspiring their teams. You will hear their stories, their perspectives, and they will tell you what they wish they could’ve told the younger version of themselves, and much more.

Because every business must be a mobile-led business, an AI-led business, and a data-led business, Inspired Execution will focus on how to inspire transformation, overcome challenges and celebrate innovation by achieving this at scale.
