Software AG’s Terracotta unit has appointed former Tibco Software veteran Robin Gilthorpe as its CEO. “This is a pivotal time to be joining Terracotta, as the company becomes a major growth driver for the Software AG Group. In-memory and related technologies will be fundamental to deriving real value from big data,” comments Gilthorpe, who is also joining Software AG’s group executive board.
Among other things, Terracotta offers BigMemory, a distributed, in-memory big data platform. It recently announced version 3.7, supporting terabytes of RAM in servers that run BigMemory.
