Picture an airport, sitting on 18,000 acres, with 50 buildings, and 1,800 direct employees.

Oh, and they filmed the whole thing, too.

Multiple Pivots, Taking on Giants, to Over $100 Million in Revenue: Matthew Calkins, CEO of Appian (Part 1)
Matt’s first couple of bets didn’t pan out. The story is interesting on many levels, the pivots being two critical ones. Also interesting is how the company managed to compete with much better funded competitors and win.

The benefits of cloud computing are no secret to the federal government -- to the contrary, they’re extremely well documented. Beginning in 2011 with then-federal CIO Vivek Kundra’s ‘CloudFirst’ initiative, the government has taken significant steps toward unlocking the primary benefits of the cloud: lowered cost, agility, increased shared services between agencies and efficiency of service for both internal stakeholders and public citizens.
Greater Washington’s technology community does not need the hype a unicorn label brings. But it’s here. Time to confront the mythical horse.
It’s a gamble. Cloud adoption is barreling along at breakneck speed, but even as round and round it goes, where it will stop no one knows. Should businesses put all their money on the cloud or play it safe by keeping one foot in traditional networking and another in the new technology – in other words, the hybrid cloud?
