Woman in Tech of the Week (5/31/17)
Abby Kearns, Executive Director, Cloud Foundry.Org Foundation Inc.
Fueled by data, analytics and cognitive technologies, all types of businesses are becoming technology companies. The continual growth of the cloud creates new opportunities for companies to bring technologies, such as data analytics, cognitive tools and artificial intelligence, directly into the heart of the business operations.
Those organizations that not only transform but collaborate in an open environment using and developing their own technologies will disrupt their industries, according to Abby Kearns, executive director at Cloud Foundry.Org Foundation Inc.
“Investing in technology, in software, in particular, allows you to differentiate your business. …[Open source allows] developers have the freedom to create. And that’s really what’s going to differentiate businesses that are becoming software companies,” Kearns said.
During Cisco Systems Inc.’s DevNet Create event in San Francisco, California, Kearns discussed the new business paradigm with John Furrier (@furrier) and Peter Burris (@plburris), co-hosts of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile live streaming studio.
This week, theCUBE spotlights Abby Kearns in our Women In Tech feature.
