With over 15 years of enterprise IT experience, including a two-and-a-half-year stint leading ASG Technologies' cloud business unit, Torsten returns to EMA to help end users and vendors leverage the opportunities presented by today's hybrid cloud and software-defined infrastructure environments in combination with advanced machine learning. Torsten specializes in topics that lead the way from hybrid cloud and the software-defined data center (SDDC) toward a business-defined concept of enterprise IT. Torsten spearheads research projects on hybrid cloud and machine learning combined with an application- and service-centric approach to hyperconverged infrastructure, capacity planning, intelligent workload placement, public cloud, open source frameworks, containers and hyperscale computing.
Founded in 1996, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) is a leading industry analyst and consulting firm that specializes in going “beyond the surface” to provide deep insight across the full spectrum of IT and data management technologies. We deliver research, analysis, and consulting services to two key client groups: Enterprise IT Professionals and IT and Data Management Vendors.
For our Enterprise IT clients, we deliver in-depth research and practical advice to help them make better decisions, succeed with key projects, and align IT with business objectives. For our IT Vendor clients, we provide the deep insight required to build the right product, reach the right prospects, and establish credibility in the marketplace. This means that – unlike many firms – EMA is both in tune with how real-world IT organizations are applying IT and data management technology to solve business problems and intimately familiar with the pros and cons of available vendor solutions.
