If you didn’t catch it, Bruce Rogers, Chief Insights Officer at Forbes Media, wrote a great piece about us and our CEO, Rajat Bhargava, last week as a part of their Thought Leaders Changing the Business Landscape series. Bruce gracefully summarized the tenants of the DevOps movement into three points: the rapid iteration of your process, integration of your teams, and the automation of your infrastructure. Having access to resources, such as the cloud, isn’t good enough because you need a methodology that enables you to quickly utilize those resources effectively. JumpCloud has been a big proponent of leveraging DevOps for our Directory-as-a-Service® platform and SaaS-based service.

Bruce not only talks about the genesis of JumpCloud and the tenants of DevOps, but he also details the culmination and accomplishments seen in Raj’s career. From the first company Raj started as a senior at MIT, to what he is currently doing here at JumpCloud, his track record of being a problem solver represents what JumpCloud is all about. And, the core problem that JumpCloud is aiming to solve is how to securely manage and connect users to their devices, applications, and networks. Or said another way, JumpCloud is building the next generation, cloud-based identity management platform.

Why We Love this Forbes Article

We love this piece because it’s honestly what we believe here at JumpCloud: “our goal is to give [DevOps and IT folks] time to focus on what they love – innovation – rather than on maintenance and management tasks,” and we intend to be constant problem solvers in the DevOps and IT space.

Big thanks to Bruce Rogers and Forbes for counting us and our CEO as a thought leader in the DevOps space! After reading the article, we encourage you to try out JumpCloud for yourself or send us note if you have any questions or feedback!
