1. Adam Famularo, GM, Cloud Customer Solutions Unit, CA Technologies
Famularo is behind the cloud offensive from an old-guard company that is looking more avant-garde every day. He’s already delivered solid results for CA’s storage products unit. Now he’s setting his sights on putting partners into the cloud and uniting CA’s six cloud acquisitions in the past 14 months under one umbrella. His first major cloud move—a new MSP program around CA’s 3Tera AppLogic cloud platform—was a slam-dunk. Partners say that Famularo is the right executive at the right time.
