A Quick Career Advice For Edward Zander

Edward Zander Joins NetSuite Board of Directors

When I saw the press release about Ed Zander's recent career move, I could not help myself from thinking about Ed's last 20 year professional life. His reputation since the Sun Microsystems days was that Ed was not a very technology-enabled executive. I am not sure even today if he personally uses an email account or any intercation with technology beyond his cell phone.

Ed should look at President Obama's video clips with his blackberry in hand and ask himself as one time president of Sun Microsystems, then as the CEO of Motorola, if he was any closer to Obama's passion with technology. The answer is NO. You must always be passionate about anything you do in life.

How successful can you be as a technology executive, if you hate the idea of email, not to mention, not even using it?

You can't.

Here is thepress release:

NetSuite Inc. (NYSE:N), a leading vendor of on-demand, integrated business management software suites for the mid-market enterprise and divisions of large companies, today announced the appointment of veteran technology executive Edward Zander to its board of directors. Mr. Zander was most recently chairman of the board and chief executive officer of Motorola, Inc. Before joining Motorola in 2004, he spent 15 years with Sun Microsystems, rising to president and chief operating officer. In addition to his board service, Mr. Zander will also serve on the Compensation Committee and the Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board.

“We are really thrilled to have Ed join our board, and I am personally excited to have the opportunity to work with him again,” said Zach Nelson, CEO of NetSuite. “Cloud computing is the convergence of telecommunications, advanced data center capabilities, and great web-native software. Ed’s incredible background and track record in all of these areas will bring enormous benefits to NetSuite as we bring the promise of Cloud Computing to businesses worldwide.”

“NetSuite's accomplishments to date are as impressive as its potential going forward,” said Mr. Zander. “The NetSuite team, technology and customer base make a powerful combination. I am excited to join such a dynamic company at an important phase of its growth and contribute to their success as they reach greater heights in the industry.”

In addition to his key leadership roles with Motorola and Sun, Mr. Zander was managing director of leading private equity fund Silver Lake Partners, vice president of marketing at Apollo Computer, and an engineering and marketing executive with Data General.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
