Discussion on the state of cloud computing and open source software that helps build, manage, and deliver everything-as-a-service.
My First Day In The Citrix CTO Office
As I am sure you all have seen by now, today marked the announcement of Citrix’ acquisition of cloud.com – heralding a newly drawn line in the sand for customers who are keen to accelerate their individual cloud deployment strategies.
Despite only being a cloud.com team member for just over a week, which must be the shortest tenure at a startup in living memory, I’m genuinely excited and very proud to become a member of the Citrix family, as this is an organization I have worked closely with, know very well and have a tremendous respect for.
In a previous life, I was honored to represent my former employer, Bechtel, as a member of Citrix’ Customer Council and through that, I was given the opportunity to get to know the culture of Citrix, the commitment of the leadership and the sheer passion for creating delight in the products.
