VANCOUVER, B.C. NOVEMBER 12, 2013 – Digital marketing and design agency Total Product Marketing (TPM) announces the release of its first annual “101 Trust Leaders in Cloud and Hosting for 2014”, a comprehensive list of “trust” leaders in Cloud and Hosting. For the complete list of names, visit TPM’s website at: http://totalproductmarketing.com/cloud-trust-leaders/.
The list encompasses many well-known trust leaders from the Cloud and Hosting sector in a variety of segments, including independent software vendors (ISVs), service providers, research analysts, media, government, and venture capitalists.
A sampling from the 101 Trust Leaders include individuals from software giant Salesforce.com (Marc Benioff, CEO), service providers Amazon.com (Werner Vogels, CTO), IBM SoftLayer (Lance Crosby, CEO) and Rackspace (Lanham Napier, President and CEO), managed hosting provider INetU (Chris Kivlehan, VP Account Management) and service provider Telx (Joe Weinman, VP Cloud Services and Strategy).
“In a few short years, cloud computing has gone from a misunderstood and overlooked sector to the forefront of IT and computing,” said Philbert Shih, Managing Director of hosting and cloud research firm, Structure Research. “Today there is unprecedented activity in the sector as IT infrastructure shifts to a cloud-based delivery model. Organizations – from the small business to the large enterprise – are looking for ways to take advantage of the cloud and providers are positioning to tackle an opportunity that still has its best days ahead.“
Total Product Marketing’s list will allow organizations to have the right information at their disposal to make decisive business, technology, operational and marketing decisions.
“We created this list to be the only source individuals will ever need when they want to seek expert and trustworthy advice from a variety of Cloud segments”, said Dean Ara, Principal, Total Product Marketing. “101 Trust Leaders in Cloud and Hosting – 2014 is one of the most thorough ‘who’s who’ of people you should care about in the cloud computing industry. Everyone has a voice, but we’ve identified those that we should trust the most.”
Jamieson Becker, CEO of TLS Accelerator, has been named a trust leader by the list. As a 20-year veteran and expert in cyber-security in the Cloud with expertise in certificate, security and Cloud technology, he said, “at TLS Accelerator, we’re completely focused on cloud security, and we’ve been impressed by TPM’s focus and depth in this area as well. With many firms, you end up with a marketing team that lacks deep vertical insights, but TPM, and in particular Dean Ara, has a strong grasp of the technical aspects of cloud marketing and the rare ability to simplify complex technical topics.”
