Listen to the podcast for the whole conversation but a few specific points that Al made were:
Digital transformation can be thought of as taking physically connected systems and logically connecting them, i.e. connecting the processes, the data, and the decision-making.
It's important to bridge new cloud-native systems to existing functionality. Organizations are not going to be rewriting old applications for the most part and those "legacy" systems still have a great deal of value.
Enterprises are asking for open source DevOps tools, but most are specifically asking for commercially-supported open source tools.
