Citrix Hires Away SAP's Chief Virtualization Evangelist

As some of you may have already heard, Citrix has just hired away Roland Wartenberg from his long time employer, SAP.  Roland has been with SAP for the last 13 years!  But he has decided to move his career forward with a new opportunity and challenge within the walls of Citrix starting on July 12, 2010.

Roland has been another popular figure in the virtualization world and is a friend to me and a friend to as well.  In 2003, he joined the adaptive computing team within SAP in Walldorf, where he had the chance to actively define and drive SAP's virtualization strategy.  In 2006, he moved back to Palo Alto with the help of SAP where he continued to work on virtualization and cloud computing for the company - giving him the opportunity to start what has become the widely popular SAP Virtualization Week event series.  He served SAP as the Chief Virtualization Strategist at SAP Labs, Green IT Evangelist and is finishing out his fantastic career as its Chief Virtualization Evangelist.       

At Citrix, one of Roland's new responsibilities will be to take care of the strategic alliance with SAP.  So don't worry, he won't be going too far away. 

Congratulations to Citrix and best of luck and continued success to Roland at his new gig.
