Introducing our newest contributor, Tom Bishop

by

We’re excited to welcome Tom Bishop on board as our new CTO here at Conformity, and as the newest contributor to this blog.

As we’ve discussed here, the nature of SaaS and virtualized resources is driving a fundamental rethink of what identity and systems management needs to be in increasingly cloud-centric environments. Migration of business-critical applications from on-premise to cloud doesn’t remove the need for some level of control and visibility (i.e. management), just changes it. Our mission at Conformity is to lead the transformation of identity and systems management for the cloud, and we are excited to have Tom on board to help lead the charge.

Tom is a true visionary in the systems management space, and has played critical roles in several pioneering management solution vendors, having served as CTO at Tivoli Systems before and after it’s acquisition by IBM, and as the CTO at BMC Software. Tom is well known as a technology innovator, having led the development of industry standards such as the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF), the CMDB federation specification and POSIX.

We welcome him to Conformity, and look forward to his contributions to our forum…
