RESTON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- Responding to increasing enterprise demand for IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) solutions, Netuitive today announced the appointment of Bob Brooks as Vice President, North American Sales.

Reporting to Netuitive CEO Nicola Sanna, Brooks will lead Netuitive's expanding North American sales organization and partner development efforts as it serves new and existing enterprise customers.

Netuitive's predictive analytics software monitors, analyzes and correlates across silos, incorporating virtually any performance metric -- from customer experience, to IT systems, to business metrics -- into a holistic model of application performance. This enables large enterprises to easily understand how IT performance is impacting their business in real-time. Netuitive's solutions play a key role in the implementation methodologies for IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) processes, technologies and solutions aligned with customer requirements and expectations.

Based in Reston, Va., Brooks will oversee the business activity in North America with a focus on developing strategic partnerships with enterprise customers and in driving revenue in the region. Brooks will work closely with Netuitive's Professional Services organization to ensure successful customer deployments and realizing value from Netuitive's open predictive IT analytics solutions as part of the customers' journey from siloed and reactive monitoring to a service-based, proactive stance.

Previously, Brooks was Vice President of Sales at Software AG overseeing sales for webMethods Integrations, Service Oriented Architecture, Business Process Management and Intelligent Business Operations. This included cross-functional responsibilities developing strategic business solutions and working closely with professional services. Prior to this, Brooks was Vice President of Supply Chain Outsourcing at Cap Gemini. Here he oversaw the company's Supply Chain Outsourcing offering through the use of ERP, Business Process Management and Supply Chain Integration Technology. Prior to this he was Vice President & General Manager, Supply Chain Applications at GE Global Exchange Services. Here he was responsible for solution-oriented, supply chain effectiveness and pioneered the company's SaaS-based offering for supply chain applications.

"Bob Brooks' proven track record of simplifying and solving complex enterprise IT and business problems is well suited for Netuitive's large telco, retail and financial services customers," said Nicola Sanna, CEO of Netuitive. "These organizations are looking to more effectively manage and understand increasingly complex IT and application environments underpinning critical business services. Bob and his team are laser focused on a new breed of ITOA solutions that enables large organizations to visualize, isolate and proactively address infrastructure and application performance issues before they impact the business."

Increasing Industry Demand for ITOA

Gartner recently published a strategic planning assumption forecasting that by 2015, 60% of Global 2000 enterprises will consider IT Operations Analytics a higher priority than APM, up from 20% in 2012.

The demand for IT operations analytics (ITOA) has grown significantly during the past two years. Gartner estimates that worldwide spending in this market subsector will surpass $800 million in 2013, which is a $500 million increase from the $300 million spent in 2012. Furthermore, this more than 100% growth rate is expected to continue through 2014, based on the spending plans disclosed to Gartner during recent inquiry-related conversations. (1)

"We started a Master of Science in business analytics - that's the hot topic. We serve the business community around San Francisco so we educate the working professionals and this is where they all want to be," explained Judy Lee, Associate Professor and Department Chair at Golden Gate University, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
There is a huge demand for responsive, real-time mobile and web experiences, but current architectural patterns do not easily accommodate applications that respond to events in real time. Common solutions using message queues or HTTP long-polling quickly lead to resiliency, scalability and development velocity challenges. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ryland Degnan, a Senior Software Engineer on the Netflix Edge Platform team, will discuss how by leveraging a reactive stream-based protocol,...
We call it DevOps but much of the time there’s a lot more discussion about the needs and concerns of developers than there is about other groups. There’s a focus on improved and less isolated developer workflows. There are many discussions around collaboration, continuous integration and delivery, issue tracking, source code control, code review, IDEs, and xPaaS – and all the tools that enable those things. Changes in developer practices may come up – such as developers taking ownership of code ...
The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making r...
Cloud Governance means many things to many people. Heck, just the word cloud means different things depending on who you are talking to. While definitions can vary, controlling access to cloud resources is invariably a central piece of any governance program. Enterprise cloud computing has transformed IT. Cloud computing decreases time-to-market, improves agility by allowing businesses to adapt quickly to changing market demands, and, ultimately, drives down costs.
For over a decade, Application Programming Interface or APIs have been used to exchange data between multiple platforms. From social media to news and media sites, most websites depend on APIs to provide a dynamic and real-time digital experience. APIs have made its way into almost every device and service available today and it continues to spur innovations in every field of technology. There are multiple programming languages used to build and run applications in the online world. And just li...
The general concepts of DevOps have played a central role advancing the modern software delivery industry. With the library of DevOps best practices, tips and guides expanding quickly, it can be difficult to track down the best and most accurate resources and information. In order to help the software development community, and to further our own learning, we reached out to leading industry analysts and asked them about an increasingly popular tenet of a DevOps transformation: collaboration.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...

Some say it a culture and every vendor in the industry claims that their tools help with DevOps. Depending on how you define DevOps, some of these metrics may matter more or less to you and your team.

The enterprise data storage marketplace is poised to become a battlefield. No longer the quiet backwater of cloud computing services, the focus of this global transition is now going from compute to storage. An overview of recent storage market history is needed to understand why this transition is important. Before 2007 and the birth of the cloud computing market we are witnessing today, the on-premise model hosted in large local data centers dominated enterprise storage. Key marketplace play...

With continuous delivery (CD) almost always in the spotlight, continuous integration (CI) is often left out in the cold. Indeed, it's been in use for so long and so widely, we often take the model for granted. So what is CI and how can you make the most of it? This blog is intended to answer those questions. Before we step into examining CI, we need to look back. Software developers often work in small teams and modularity, and need to integrate their changes with the rest of the project code b...
