Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a provider of network-dense,
cloud-enabled enterprise-class data center products and services, today
announced the realignment of its Sales and Marketing resources designed
to create a more efficient and effective go-to-market platform, as well
as streamline the operating structure. The realignment will include the
elimination of the chief operating officer role.
As part of the realignment, CoreSite has appointed Steven Smith as
senior vice president of sales, effective January 27, 2014. In this
role, Mr. Smith is responsible for overseeing all of CoreSite’s sales
organization, including direct sales, indirect partner channel and sales
enablement. Mr. Smith brings nearly 20 years of management experience in
building and leading sales and technical organizations. He most recently
served as a Regional Vice President for SAP (NYSE:SAP), a business
software company, where he led large enterprise sales across application
portfolios, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), big data,
customer relationship management (CRM), cloud and mobile.
CoreSite’s marketing and product organizations will continue to be led
by Brian Warren, CoreSite’s senior vice president of marketing and
product management. Mr. Warren held responsibility over both
organizations during his first year at CoreSite beginning in 2011 and
has again been responsible for them since November, 2013.
Jarrett Appleby is leaving his position as chief operating officer to
pursue other opportunities. Under the new alignment, Messrs. Smith and
Warren will report to Tom Ray, president and chief executive officer.
Additionally, Jeff Finnin, CoreSite’s chief financial officer, will
assume oversight responsibilities for the facilities and operations
organizations which are led by Billie Haggard, senior vice president of
data centers and Dominic Tobin, senior vice president of operations,
“We thank Jarrett for his many contributions to CoreSite and wish him
well in his future endeavors,” said Tom Ray. “We are excited to welcome
Steve Smith to the CoreSite team. With his deep background and
relationships across the technology landscape and his proven success
among our target customers, Steve is well-positioned to hit the ground
running leading our sales organization. We are pleased to have Steve
join our senior leadership team.”

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations.

To some this appears to be chaos.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
