Mr. Ferrando moves to the role of President & CEO after previously serving as the company's President alongside Mr. Antle. He has held executive leadership roles with Salient CRGT's predecessor companies, including as CEO of CRGT and President and COO of Cherry Road Technologies, dating back to 2001.

"Tom is exceptionally qualified to lead Salient CRGT, having spun out and grown the business over nearly two decades," said Walter Florence, Managing Partner of Frontenac and a member of the Salient CRGT Board. "He approaches each customer relationship as an opportunity to address crucial IT modernization issues across our diverse mix of federal agency partners, and his deep and hands-on operating experience at Salient CRGT leaves him well suited to drive key strategic initiatives going forward. We are grateful for Brad's leadership and contributions to Salient CRGT, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

"I am thrilled to be given this opportunity to lead Salient CRGT into its next phase of growth and development," said Tom Ferrando. "Over the last decade, we have successfully expanded our customer base and capabilities around digital services, health IT, data analytics, cyber, mobility, cloud and IT service management. I believe there is a tremendous opportunity in front of us for growing our business, particularly in the favorable current environment for federal services."

Mr. Nolan will help drive the overall strategic vision for the company and work closely in partnership with Mr. Ferrando to promote future growth. Mr. Nolan was most recently the CEO of Camber Corporation, which was acquired by Huntington Ingalls Industries in 2016. Prior to that, Mr. Nolan was Chairman, President and CEO of Stanley, Inc., which he took public in 2006 and then sold to CGI Group in 2010 for $1.2 billion. Under Phil's leadership, Stanley grew from a 20-person operation to a company of 5,000 employees and almost $1 billion in revenue.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations.

As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...

However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
