XebiaLabs Opens London Office to Drive Market Expansion

Appoints Deborah Shakespeare as Director of UK Sales

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/14/14 -- Celebrating a year of record growth and looking to further expand into new markets, XebiaLabs announced plans to open a London office to recruit new customers to its application release automation platform. Organizations such as John Deere, the Met Office, and Société Générale, turn to XebiaLabs to accelerate the time-to-market of their software applications with optimum reliability.

XebiaLabs also announced a former Oracle Senior Director, Deborah Shakespeare, as Director of UK Sales.

"We're very fortunate to have experienced record growth in customer wins and now we wish to better service the demand flow from the UK and Irish markets," said Coert Baart, CEO, XebiaLabs. London is a huge financial services center and we are already helping many large banks realize major ROI in the amount of time they save getting high-quality applications out to production."

Staffing the UK office will be newly appointed Deborah Shakespeare, who brings 20 years of technical sales and business development background including eight years moving up the ranks in various leadership roles at Oracle. Before Oracle she held sales executive positions involving direct and channel relations with Borland Software, Popkin Software, Bradmark Technologies, Dataease, and Bytech. Before joining XebiaLabs, she was EMEA Director of Sales Strategy for Corso Ltd.

The UK's largest provider of forecasting data, the Met Office, has weathered nicely with XebiaLabs. Prior to working with the vendor, application release preparations at the Met Office were handled manually; each step would be subjected to time-consuming checks to ensure proper execution. The Met Office can now support continuous delivery of services to millions of customers while reducing the risk of errors and number of resources required to get applications out to users.

Alan Morbey, Configuration Management Team Leader at the Met Office, said, "We have seen very encouraging results, with deployment times being substantially reduced."

Most recently, XebiaLabs rolled out XL Platform, a suite of applications comprising XL Deploy, for application release automation, XL Release, for enterprise release management for DevOps and Continuous Delivery, XL Test, the first dedicated Agile test management and analysis tool and XL Scale, for on-demand provisioning and scaling of full environments.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
