Yes, it’s that time of the year again. Got this quick 2014 summary for you, from Barcelona with love.
We launched Alignia, encapsulating the knowledge from hundreds of successful monitoring projects into a revolutionary software product.
Alignia allows you to control, optimize and align these nasty Business Applications, Business Processes, Online Business Services and Business Security in the Interconnected Era (hey, the Extended Enterprise is finally here… and you need to be ready for it).
It has been a major, multi-year, multi-million effort, and we can’t be happier with it. Alignia is rapidly getting traction among leading companies like yours all over the world as they realize that they can unlock lots of value in a matter of hours. (Yes, hours. And not that many.)
Corporate alignment between IT and the Business has never been this easy. Get the whole story here. You’ll thank me later :-)
We kept adding talented staff, moved to bigger and better offices in Barcelona and we are remodeling our offices in Buenos Aires.
We keep gaining more and more customers in the financial sector. In some countries we help more banks that the whole competition together.
My mother passed away at the age of 86 on December 8th. She will be surely missed.
I also returned for a while to an old love of mine, cinema direction, and directed The CIO’s Office, a funny mockumentary that warns CIOs about the horrors they may face without Alignia :-) It premiered with a warm reception at our Tango/04 Monitoring Symposiums. Academy Awards, here we go!
I also celebrated the 25th anniversary of graduation from college at the University of Buenos Aires, which also invited me to give a speech there this month; it was a pleasure and an honor for me.
Well, thank you fellow readers, customers, friends, partners, suppliers, colleagues and teammates.
Have a really really really WONDERFUL (and ALIGNED) 2015!
