Turbonomic is thrilled to announce that we have taken the ParityPledge. This is a public commitment that for every open position Vice President and above (including C-suite and Board), we will interview at least one woman for the job. While Turbonomic has always made a conscious effort to incorporate this practice into our hiring, we believe that publicly committing to the ParityPledge will promote better accountability, and urge other companies to do the same.

Turbonomic recently hosted its first virtual conference, Turbonomic Live. Joined by leaders from AWS, IBM, Microsoft, SevOne, ParkMyCloud, Allergan and Carhartt, the conference was centered around how companies can maintain business resiliency through an ever-changing IT landscape. 3,000+ registrants tuned in to hear about a variety of topics – including CIO and customer perspectives, application resource management, demystifying cloud-native, unlocking elasticity with cloud economics and network resiliency.
Our first post in the series introduced the scenario where our IT teams on the Cloud Rush application had an application needing to make its way to production. This is often the case where the Ops team is handed the working version and asked to work backwards. It’s also important that the reason this happens is that development teams often feel like they have to do a lot on their own to get products built faster. This is our chance to bring those two teams together and use the power of good IT architecture and Infrastructure-as-Code to ensure both speed and consistency of outcome.
Application owners focus their efforts on developing new capabilities, driving innovation and tend to be agile. IT operations teams focus on keeping existing applications performant and available, meeting agreed upon Service Level Agreement (SLA), while still helping the business innovate.
While there is a subtle difference between the focus of an application owner and IT operations, the end goal is the same; deliver the best customer experience, innovate faster, and improve operating leverage.

Applications are at the heart of every business and power the way enterprises interact with customers, employees, and suppliers. By 2023, IDC predicts that the global economy will finally reach "digital supremacy" with more than half of all GDP worldwide driven by products and services from digitally transformed enterprises. Across any industry vertical, applications are the new currency.
