Josh James to Join Board of Directors of InsideSales.com

The Founder and CEO of Domo, Who Also Co-Founded and Was Longtime CEO of Omniture, Joins Board of Directors of the Leading Sales Analytics Software Company

SILICON SLOPES, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- InsideSales.com today announced that Domo founder and CEO Josh James, known for his dynamic leadership of Omniture and its eventual $1.8 billion sale to Adobe, is joining the Board of Directors of InsideSales.com, the leading sales automation and analytics platform for inside sales professionals.

InsideSales.com previously announced that James invested in the company in the same funding round led by Hummer Winblad Venture Partners and several other SaaS industry leaders.

"InsideSales.com is bringing an entirely new experience to sales automation by integrating gamification, social media and texting into their platform," said James. "We've seen what InsideSales.com can do to shorten Domo's sales cycles. I'm excited to see InsideSales.com continue to deliver new value to its growing customer base. I've known Dave for a long time and I look forward to sharing more insights with him and his team over the coming years as they build their business."

In 1996, James co-founded the first enterprise SaaS business, Omniture, and sold it to Adobe in 2009. It was the number one returning venture investment out of 1,008 venture capital investments in 2004. In 2010, James started Domo to redefine the business intelligence market and transform the way business is managed. James has been involved with InsideSales.com for several years as a friend and mentor of Dave Elkington, CEO and Founder.

"Having Josh more formally involved in the business will be absolutely invaluable," Elkington said. "His insights and feedback have helped build our current momentum. Josh's experience building and managing exponential growth will be instrumental in directing our hyper-growth to building the next Utah-based billion-dollar business."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
