MuleSoft Appoints Software Industry Veteran Uri Sarid as Chief Technology Officer

Expansion of Leadership Team Supports Accelerating Global Demand for Anypoint Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/13 -- MuleSoft, provider of the world's most widely used integration platform to connect the New Enterprise, today announced the appointment of software industry veteran, Uri Sarid, as chief technology officer. Sarid will focus on MuleSoft's technical vision and technology strategy across its products and will report directly to CEO Greg Schott. MuleSoft founder Ross Mason will now be dedicated full time to the company's long-term product strategy and evolution as newly named vice president of product strategy; he will also continue to evangelize the flagship Anypoint™ Platform, built on the popular open source Mule project he created in 2003.

Sarid brings extensive experience as a software entrepreneur and executive to MuleSoft. Most recently, he served as the vice president of the NOOK Cloud for Barnes & Noble, where he led the team that architected, led and released the digital content and user platform for NOOK. Previously, as vice president of engineering at eMeter Corporation, he led the technical team to deliver industry-leading software and solutions for the Smart Grid. Before eMeter, Sarid was CTO and vice president of engineering at Aptana, where he delivered pioneering products for JavaScript developers, including the Studio development environment; Jaxer, the first Ajax server; and the Aptana Cloud platform. Sarid's strategic leadership expertise, coupled with his proven experience in building high-caliber engineering teams and technology architectures, will enable MuleSoft to amplify its technology strategy for connecting the New Enterprise and accelerate its explosive growth.

"These strategic moves in our company leadership will help accelerate our pace of innovation and ensure MuleSoft is synonymous worldwide with the once-in-a-generation shift represented by the New Enterprise," said Greg Schott, president and CEO of MuleSoft. "We're growing at record pace to keep up with powerful market demand for our solutions, and we are pursuing our mission to alleviate the $500 billion integration pain point."

"I've felt first hand the pains of developing and managing an ever-increasing web of applications and services and was drawn to MuleSoft for the opportunity to address this huge problem," said Uri Sarid, CTO at MuleSoft. "The MuleSoft team has made amazing strides in revolutionizing the way the world connects, shares and manages data and applications. Much of my career has been invested in APIs and the cloud, which are major catalysts for this revolution, so I'm especially excited to help drive MuleSoft's technology vision to meet the growing demands of the New Enterprise."

Founded on the idea that connecting applications should not be hard, MuleSoft lets organizations harness the power of their applications through integration, without the need for custom point-to-point code. At the core is MuleSoft's Anypoint technology, which provides instant API connectivity to hundreds of on-premise and cloud-based applications and systems. For companies anywhere along the continuum -- from on-premise to the cloud -- MuleSoft eliminates the pain of integration so companies can realize the full potential of the New Enterprise.

"Uri brings outstanding depth of experience to our team that will help MuleSoft reach the next level of innovation and seize the immense opportunity ahead," said Ross Mason, founder and vice president of product strategy at MuleSoft. "I'm excited to work with Uri to set product strategy and direction as MuleSoft extends our industry leadership. Our team is now more equipped than ever to grow the company and the worldwide footprint of our Anypoint Platform."

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...
