Thought Leaders in Cloud Computing: Ohad Maislish, CEO of env0 (Part 2)

Posted on Tuesday, Oct 19th 2021

Ohad Maislish: Another use case is governance. Not every code should be executed. Some code can be very dangerous and expensive. That’s where you see Policy-as-a-Code. We see a lot of open policy agents (OPA) used to protect programmatic deployments before they happen. You can write policies that will prevent your organization from the wrong deployment. That’s like the unit test model for Infrastructure-as-a-Code.

Putting the Freshworks IPO in Context (Part 1)

Posted on Thursday, Sep 23rd 2021

On Nov 13, 2009, I wrote an article in my Forbes column titled India’s Next Celebrities. It was a year after the financial crisis.

Never mind the recession. In India, entrepreneurial energy has continued to grow. It still exists only in small pockets. And the sophistication of the entrepreneurial ecosystem has a long way to go before it can resemble anything like Silicon Valley–or even Israel. In this evolution, the Indian media has an important role to play.

At the time, I was busy trying to turn Sridhar Vembu, CEO of Zoho, into a celebrity. Hardly anyone had heard of HIM until my 2007 profile.

I had not yet launched 1Mby1M.

Girish Mathrubootham, avid fan of celebrity Tamil film star Rajnikant, had not yet launched Freshdesk (now Freshworks). He was still working at Zoho, under Sridhar’s tutelage.

Both of those events happened in 2010.
