Time to rejoin the blogging community
I have to admit – I had hit a period of burn out. I had been leading IBM Database Software & Systems Marketing & Strategy for some time, and it was time for a change.
A little over a year ago I moved to a new role – leading Strategy for Software Defined Environments in IBM Systems & Technology Group. It was a wild first year, with a lot of changes – including picking up business line responsibilities for Elastic Storage, our scale-out software defined file & object storage offering – known to most as General Parallel File System, and our software defined computing portfolio, Platform Computing software. It was a busy year and I had a lot to learn.
We are now at a very exciting point in IBM, having worked though a challenging transformation year in 2014. I am now business line VP for Software Defined Infrastructure in the new IBM Systems team, and am fired up about our new organization, our product portfolio and the plans we have for 2015. As such, I figure it is time for me to get back to posting regularly.
That’s enough about me and the transition of topic for this blog. As a tease for the next post.. I will have a lot to talk about next month as we head into the IBM InterConnect conference. I invite you to follow the link and register to join us in Vegas at the end of February. Travel safe.
