• Change is hard... but F5 is doing it

    (10 Dec 2018)
    So we all know change is not easy, especially when it involves moving away from what you have be doing successfully for many years. Last week I had the opportunity to attend **F5 Networks - North American Partner Leadership Summit** along with many of F5's top North American Partners. The message from the senior management team was crystal clear, F5 is **changing its stance** in the market and is very serious about rapidly evolving to meet these new market and customer demands.

    I had the opportunity to attend the f5 Networks North American Partner Leadership Summit December 4th and 5th. They certainly picked a sweet spot the host the event, the Ritz Carlton - Half Moon Bay is an amazing property on the edge of the west coast. Hitesh and I were able to step away during lunch to have a conversation about what's going on with f5, the thriving community, emerging technology and all the change that is rolling out across the organization.
  • Fireside Chat with Loris Degioanni and Knox Anderson from Sysdig

    We have been getting a lot of great feedback on the recent Fireside Chat series we have been posting. This week I am traveling on the west coast and had a stop over in San Francisco for GitHub Universe. I had some time on Monday so I stopped in at the Sysdig office to meet some of the extended team and dig deep into their culture and powerful technology. As we know timing is everything... I managed to get some time with Loris and Knox and have an impromptu fireside chat.
  • So ... A year and a half - part1

    (06 Oct 2017)
    My plan was to write this blog at the Arctiq 1 year mark, but business got in the way, so I figured the 18-month mark is also a good time to capture some thoughts. It’s also a nice reflection point when looking back at a busy, challenging, productive time for our young, growing company. WOW a lot happened! Many important aspects came to mind that were critical to building and running a brand new business with an amazing team.
