Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) today announced that its President
and Chief Executive Officer, Mark B. Templeton, will remain in his
current role and will not retire next year as previously announced. In
addition, as part of its ongoing commitment to evolve its board of
directors, Citrix announced the addition of Robert (Bob) M. Calderoni to
its board, effective immediately.
Citrix Chairman Thomas F. Bogan said, “Since January, the Board has been
working diligently with outside advisors to select our next CEO. During
the search, Mark informed us that, after much consideration, his desire
was to stay on as CEO. After completing our search process, and
considering a number of qualified candidates, the Board concluded that
Mark is the best leader to drive the Company forward at this time of
dynamic change in our business.”
“While Mark has made a multi-year commitment, CEO succession remains an
important focus for our Board and we will continue to manage for the
time when he steps down,” Bogan said.
Templeton said, “While I had planned to retire within the year following
my leave of absence, my personal circumstances have changed, and I am
more determined than ever to lead Citrix through its next wave of
transformation. Our core businesses have market-leading positions and
our early successes in mobile and cloud services put the Company at a
pivotal inflection point in its evolution. I deeply appreciate the
Board’s support for my continued leadership of the company at this
important time. There is much to be done, and my commitment to drive the
business forward is unwavering.”
Templeton joined Citrix in 1995 as Vice President of Marketing, prior to
its initial public offering. He was appointed President in 1998 and
Chief Executive Officer in 2001. During his tenure, Citrix has
transformed from a one-product, $15 million organization, to a global

in shaping Citrix’s culture, market direction, product strategy and
passion for customers. He holds a bachelor’s degree in product design
from North Carolina State University and an MBA from the University of
Virginia, Darden School of Business.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
In this power panel at @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud.

He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
