Adrian Cockcroft has had a long career working at the leading edge of technology most recently driving enterprise adoption of cloud technologies and microservices amongst other new trends. He’s always been fascinated by what comes next, and he writes and speaks extensively on a range of subjects. He is currently at Battery Ventures focused on working with exciting start-ups and keeping abreast of technology trends.

Before joining Battery, Adrian helped lead Netflix’s migration to a large scale, highly available public-cloud architecture and the open sourcing of the cloud-native NetflixOSS platform. Prior to that at Netflix he managed a team working on personalization algorithms and service-oriented refactoring.

Adrian was a founding member of eBay Research Labs, developing advanced mobile applications and even building his own homebrew phone, years before iPhone and Android launched. As a distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems he wrote the best-selling “Sun Performance and Tuning” book and was chief architect for High Performance Technical Computing.

We have invited Adrian to talk about "Enterprise Transformation with Cloud Computing" and "peer" into the cloud crystal ball to talk about emerging opportunities in the enterprise cloud space and see what "lies ahead" in 2016 and beyond!
