I’ve just returned from a great trip where my bike team and I rode through the French Alps shadowing the Tour de France…. there are many parallels to climbing the Alps and launching a new PaaS product. We had to climb some steep and almost insurmountable mountains, avoid some big obstacles (like an avalanche), and had a lot of fun and celebration along the way.
I’ve returned to a lot of forward momentum here at HQ. The Connection Cloud has been featured on GigaOm in a great article explaining how our service solves the information integration problem that has arisen as SaaS applications become the standard for businesses to store their information. We have over 500 companies using the technology.
Overall, I am excited to see the Connection Cloud moving in a positive direction. My dynamic team has been working hard in my absence, and though I had a great time in France, I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the office.
I wasn’t the only one caught up in the excitement of the Tour de France. Our partner, Yellowfin, has data visualizations on the exciting race, mapping everything from average speed to entrants vs. finishers. Check it out here.
