Who is Jeanne Morain?

Our friend Jeanne began her career in startups and made her first big splash when BMC Software acquired Marimba.

Marimba was the company founded by Kim Polese, the original product manager for the Java programming language. It was a precursor to basically, everything we take for granted today: containers, orchestration, device management, patch management. It ended up being sold to Samsung and it’s still in use at Starbucks powering everything from cars to fridges. Without it there’s no continuous delivery, there’s no DevOps.

In working to integrate Marimba’s software, Jeanne became a pioneer in the development of business service management, the foundation for what we now call digital transformation. From BMC Jeanne moved to executive roles with Thinstall, which was acquired by VMware, InstallFree and Flexera. In the middle of all this she also wrote the definitive books on desktop virtualization: Client4Cloud; and digital transformation: Visible Ops Private Cloud. She’s a highly sought-after advisor to executive boards and CEOs and is now working on a digital transformation startup of her own.

So join Jeanne and Rachel as they try to get to the bottom of why corporate innovation is hard.
