Outstanding Technical Achievement Award

Project Lead, Superclouds
IBM Watson Research,
The Superclouds are entire clouds within and across clouds. We have created a nested virtualization layer called the Xen-Blanked that allows running your own hypervisor on top of other Xen-based clouds (e.g., Amazon EC2). We have also explored device virtualization abstractions that enable new ways of wiring applications in a multi-cloud deployment.

Outstanding Technical Achievement Award

IBM Watson Research,
The Analytics for Logical Dependency Mapping (ALDM) is a light-weight solution for deep discovery of infrastructure and application topologies. ALDM has and continue to be used across many client engagements as part of migrating enterprise applications across data centers. The project was awarded an "Outstanding Accomplishments" for demonstrating greater than combined $100M revenue/savings impact.

Outstanding Innovation Award

Principle Investigator and Development Lead, The Cyano Process Wiki
IBM Watson Research,
Cyano is a social networking-based process co-creation platform. The award was given for demonstrating how Cyano has enabled the acceleration of capturing and enrichment of over 550 IBM IT best practices, with a community of over 12,000 subject matter experts. This project was awarded a ‘Research Accomplishment’ for demonstrating over $5M cost savings.

Outstanding Technical Achievement Award

Principle Investigator and Development Lead, Integrated Infrastructure Intelligence
IBM Watson Research,
The Integrated Infrastructure Intelligence (i3) is a mashup and analytics framework for managing disparate infrastructure components. Developed as part of a First-of-a-Kind project with a large cable provider, i3 was used to monitor over 400,000 devices. A key component of i3 is an inference algorithm that uses historical failure patterns for discovering hidden topologies, even in the presence of noisy and incomplete data. i3 automatically identifies shared failure risk. When failure is detected, i3 tracks impacted users using an adaptive monitoring technique. This project was awarded a ‘Research Accomplishment’ for demonstrating over $10M revenue impact.
