Former VMware Executive Scott Davis Joins Embotics as Chief Technology Officer
Davis Will Drive Embotics’ Product and Technology Strategy Innovation
OTTAWA, Ontario – September 20, 2016 – Embotics, the cloud automation company, today announced that Scott Davis has joined the company as Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Davis spent seven years at VMware, most recently as CTO of the company’s end-user computing business unit where he was instrumental in building that $1B business while driving product and technology strategy, partnerships and engineering initiatives across VMware’s product lines.
“Since my pioneering work on containers at VMware, I’ve been passionate about driving next-generation application architectures such as microservices and serverless computing. Embotics’ cloud automation platform is directly aligned with my interests and the opportunity to join the team was one I couldn’t pass up,” said Scott Davis. “Embotics has a deep and nuanced understanding of their customers’ need for agile cross-cloud infrastructure automation that can enable them to capitalize on new business opportunities quickly. As DevOps methodology, microservices, PaaS and clouds become pervasive technologies for business applications, flexible automation that effectively bridges and seamlessly coordinates both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds is required. Legacy-style integrated management suites are simply too complex to deploy and not agile enough for these environments. I look forward to working with and expanding the fantastic roster of customers and a talented management team.”
At Embotics, Davis will be responsible for managing technology and product strategy for vCommander, the company’s award-winning solution for hybrid cloud automation. Davis will also head up the Office of the CTO, an Advanced Technology Team chartered with accelerating value through new technology innovation.
