Adaptive Computing President To Discuss The Importance Of The Cloud Management Layer At GigaOM Structure 2010


San Francisco & Provo, Utah—June 22, 2010—


Michael Jackson, co-founder, COO and president of Adaptive Computing, the company behind the Moab® unified intelligent automation technology, is scheduled to participate in a panel discussion titled, “The First Step to ROI: Analytics and Management Layers” on Wednesday, June 23 at GigaOMStructure 2010. GigaOM Structure 2010 is set to be the largest and most influential cloud computing conference this year. Dozens of leading cloud industry executives and influencers will take the stage at Structure 2010 to share best practices and real-world strategies for embracing cloud computing across the enterprise.


Moderated by Sebastian Stadil, CEO of Scalr, the panelists for “The First Step to ROI: Analytics and Management Layers” include:

  • William “Skip” Bacon, Vice President of Products and CTO, Virtual Instruments
  • Michael A. Jackson, Co-Founder, President, and COO, Adaptive Computing
  • Jagan Jagannathan, Founder and CTO, Xangati
  • Alex Polvi, CEO and Co-Founder, Cloudkick
  • Javier Soltero, CTO for Management Products, SpringSource


“You cannot manage what you cannot measure” — or so the saying goes. That’s especially true when it comes to investing in the cloud. In order to understand both the ROI and the performance of the deployment, the cloud client has to turn to reporting and management layers. In this session leading technology providers discuss the conflict between providing operators with the correct decision-making tools vs. creating policy-driven, intelligent infrastructure.
