  1. 1. Observatory XXI century application management
  2. 2. The Trend • Cloud transformation presents an excellent opportunity to create better apps for virtually all markets: • Enterprise software is complex, lacks capabilities, very costly and needs to go (just as Salesforce.com replaced Siebel 10 years ago, Salesforce.com is now the dinosaur) • SMB needs are significantly underserved
  3. 3. The Trend • As business processes are increasingly treated as a competitive advantage: • Operations inside large companies become merged with internal IT • Need tools for fast implementation, change management and deployment
  4. 4. Meteor framework
  5. 5. Meteor Framework • Super-fast development, painless deployment and change management • Modern technologies (node, javascript, reactive programming…) • Emerging alternative to Ruby on Rails as startup platform of choice; aspiration to eventually compete with J2EE enterprise servers and other middleware - but in a “tornado” game-shifting way • Backed by notable VCs investment
  6. 6. Opportunity • Every “techtonic” shift creates opportunity for next generation ecosystem products: • and partners • and • . • Technologies used in Meteor present application management possibilities previously unheard of
  7. 7. The Market • Infrastructure & Middleware ~ $20B (32% IBM share) • Solarwinds ~ 335M in 2013, growing 50%+ • Several million startups are created every year in the US, 50,000+ get funded
  8. 8. Observatory • Application management and monitoring for Meteor apps, extendable to virtually any technology • Prototype used in semi-production apps today • 100+ enterprise developers signed up and waiting for public beta announcement • Excitement in the Meteor community • Start small, solving specific problem at the very early stage, build up from there
  9. 9. Observatory • http://observatoryjs.com
  10. 10. Product • Done • Performance monitoring, profiling, versatile logging • Alpha cloud (SaaS) version • Plan • Complete visibility into application internals thanks to JS and node power • Error detection, live remote debugging, including for specific application clients - next generation customer support • Modular architecture for non-meteor technologies support

  14. 14. Investment needs • Launch cloud-based service to start wide beta program around Meteor 1.0 release timeframe (Fall of 2014) • Fine-tune version 1 for public launch based on real world scenarios (currently, 100+ enterprise developers signed up and waiting for beta announcement) • 24 months of development & support before operational profitability • No marketing expenses (word of mouth works fine at this stage)
