Brian Roche

Sr. Director, Engineering

Working directly for the division President, I provide senior leadership for the Cloud Platform Team. Responsible for and directing Engineering, Product Management and defining the overall division strategy. The EMC Cloud Management Division is bringing enterprise capabilities to Cloud Foundry and multi-cloud environments. I help enterprise customers make hybrid-cloud computing a meaningful part of their IT strategy. I believe that software is the dominate value proposition for enterprise companies now and in the future and believe strongly in the principles of lean startup, running lean and the Toyota Production System (Lean manufacturing). If you don’t have a Devops culture that supports the rapid creation of born-in-the-cloud, Cloud Native Applications then you’re going to be left behind.

I am committed to the Open Source community and in particular, the Cloud Foundry community. Having established the EMC Cloud Foundry Technical Community to support the creation of Cloud Native Applications in 2015. The Cloud Management & Orchestration Division enjoys a DevOps culture which is pervasive in our execution. I have extensive experience leading geographically dispersed people and lean product teams, with excellent communication skills and project management capabilities. Proven track record of leadership with over 19 years of success in the software industry including 10 years of leadership/management. I possess an in-depth understanding of emerging technologies and their commercial applications. Culturally sensitive and internationally traveled leader with significant experience working with local and remote development teams as well as globally located customers.
