Embotics Strengthens Advisory Board Council with Appointment of CSC Executive Dr. James Serack
Embotics, the Virtual Machine Lifecycle Management Company, today announced the appointment of Dr. James Serack to its Advisory Board Council. The Council helps Embotics with product direction, organization and strategy associated with managing and controlling virtualized environments.

With more than 24 years of leadership, engineering and business experience, Dr. Serack is the director of Americas Architecture and Innovation for Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), a global information technology and services company. At CSC, he served also as Ascension Health Account CTO and a solution executive in Business Development. Prior to CSC, Dr. Serack was vice president of Information Services (CIO) for the R&D divisions of Nortel Networks.

Dr. Serack is currently the chair of the Advisory Board of Western Engineering (ACWE) at the University of Western Ontario, and on the Executive Steering Committee of the American Nursing Time and Motion Research Project. He is a professional engineer and holds a Bachelor in Engineering Physics (1983) from the University of Saskatchewan and a PhD in Electrical Engineering (1988) from Edinburgh University, Scotland. Dr. Serack presents numerous papers in microelectronics and is an active contributor to technology Wikis. He also holds a patent in the telecommunications field.

Virtualization provides an order of magnitude reduction of a data centers physical costs, while also increasing overall data center flexibility and agility. However, the increased complexity inherent in virtualized environments brings additional management and control costs rather than a corresponding reduction in the associated labor costs of operating the data center, said Dr. Serack. Embotics technology helps manage this added complexity, letting data center managers take full advantage of server virtualization in a safe, controlled and structured manner, as well as setting the industry on a path towards the automation that will address these labor costs.

Embotics flagship product, V-Commander, is the only industry solution that provides policy-based management, control and operational oversight for virtualized server environments. The companys technology allows enterprises to control virtual sprawl, automate basic administration tasks and effectively manage server virtualization infrastructures.

Jim is an accomplished leader in the high-tech industry, and he brings extensive professional expertise that we expect to draw upon as we expand our products and penetrate the market, said Jay Litkey, CEO of Embotics. As a member of the advisory board, he brings a level of technical and business knowledge, and essential thought leadership that will play an important role in driving this company forward.
