Al Liebl
VP Product Management, Trigence
With over 10 years IT industry experience, Al has worked with many leading vendors, including Platinum Technology, Digital Equipment Corporation, NetIQ, Consera and BladeLogic. At NetIQ, he helped drive sales and product direction and completed his tenure as a principal strategist. Most recently, Al was senior program director at META Group where he focused on infrastructure and application management, specifically monitoring infrastructure and the related management models. Mr. Liebl received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Trigence develops application virtualization software that helps IT departments liberate applications from the underlying OS and manage them as independent, moveable objects. Trigence Application Environment (AE) delivers on the promise of virtual computing at the application level.

Trigence AE helps IT departments to segment or package applications into application “capsules”, creating a discrete object that defines and contains an application. An “application capsule” is a secure environment, one that effectively separates the application from the operating system and the underlying infrastructure and insulates the applications from environmental changes. Trigence AE does not remove application dependencies; rather, they are embodied within the capsule itself. The result is a self-contained application “object.” For example, Trigence AE allows application capsules to run on newer members of the same operating system family upon which they were created – for example, a Solaris 8 application capsule can run on Solaris 9 or 10 (with a compatible processor architecture), or a capsule created under Red Hat Linux could be run on a SUSE Linux platform.

The advantage of combining the application and its dependencies into a single file is that it helps to explicitly define “what is the application” and how can it be more easily managed, which remains one of IT’s biggest challenges.
