SAN MATEO, Calif., Jan. 10 – SnapLogic, the leader in enterprise cloud integration, today announced enterprise software industry veteran, Andrea Eubanks de Jounge, has joined the company's executive management team. With extensive experience building product awareness and developing high-impact marketing programs, Andrea will lead the charge in broadening enterprise awareness of SnapLogic products and solutions.
"Andrea is an experienced marketing professional with a strong track record in enterprise software product marketing and strategy. She has the perfect skill set to expand our market reach among enterprises," said Gaurav Dhillon, chairman and CEO of SnapLogic. "We are thrilled with the addition of Andrea to our management team as we further establish our leadership in enterprise cloud integration. SnapLogic is connecting enterprise apps to the cloud for even more Global 2000 enterprises -- reducing their integration time to market by a factor of ten, improving their decision-making with better information flow, and providing mobile-ready data to all their enterprise applications -- in a Snap."
Andrea previously held management positions at several enterprise software companies, including VMware, Oracle, Macromedia Inc. (now Adobe), BEA Systems (now Oracle) and TIBCO. Most recently she served as the vice president of marketing for cloud application platform provider Heroku, which was acquired by Salesforce.com in early 2011. Andrea began her career as an analyst for IBM and went on to hold marketing positions at Oracle for over six years. She holds an MBA from Columbia University in finance and technology.
"SnapLogic's cloud-ready, easy-to-deploy integration solution addresses the biggest pain points that large organizations and their CIOs experience when integrating on-premises legacy applications with mobile and SaaS environments," said Andrea. "With Software-as-a-Service, you can launch a new HR or CRM solution right away, but traditional data integration solutions are costly and slow. SnapLogic's innovations have cracked the code to solve this problem, delivering the fastest and most productive solution for integrating all types of enterprise applications to the cloud. I am energized by SnapLogic's innovations and the opportunity to drive new audiences to discover SnapLogic's unique value."

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
