Statement of Interest

Having been in the academic field for more than 8 years, I believe I understand the learning lifecycle. Armed with my expeirence in running operations for a Learning & Development Company, I could very well contribute in carrying the vision of OpenStack.


I have been contributing to IT industry for past 13 years. One of the components of virtuous circle of Business lifecycle is Learning & Development, which I research and contribute. As a CEO, I carry the vision to be the preferred Learning partner for Enterprises, Academia, and for Individuals. My organization focuses in elevating knowledge of an individual, thereby increasing the net worth of the organization.

As a Technical evangelist and advisor to my Clients, I help them build their roadmap for Learning & Development strategies. Building Skills and promoting various technologies within and external to the organization helps many understand the employment trend.

I plan to be committed in promoting OpenStack by providing consistent Education delivery, thereby increasing brand awareness, validate proficiency and mastering the technology. The result will be increased employability.





Sathish Kumar is a candidate in the 2014 Board Election.


What is your relationship to OpenStack, and why is its success important to you? What would you say is your biggest contribution to OpenStack's success to date?



OpenStack is a revolutionary way to lower down TCO. Since we connect with both Enterprises and Academia, it is very easy for us to collect the pain points and share with OpenStack community. I brutally believe along with OpenStack, my organization as well will scale.

As of today, I have been evangelizing many of my Clients to start using OpenStack. I have been successful educating OpenStack to couple of my Clients.  I feel proud to be evangalizing OpenStack. 


Describe your experience with other non profits or serving as a board member. How does your experience prepare you for the role of a board member?


As a board member, the responsibility in carrying the organization vision, followed by being ethical and accountable to the organization. Building organization financially healthy and help raising funds is another key task which I was involved in successfully.  


What do you see as the Board's role in OpenStack's success?


 There are many areas where Board's role can bring in success. Per my experience, strategizing the vision, creating manifesto, connecting with research and development communities will bring in excellence and success.

Per my perspective Top Priority shall be:

1. Enlist various features and options provided by CloudStack. Creats Feature list for OpenStack
