IT infrastructure monitoring company LogicMonitor has hired Taggart Matthiesen as the company’s new Chief Product Officer (CPO).

LogicMonitor says that as CPO, Matthiesen will oversee all aspects of product strategy for the company and its unified observability platform, LM Envision, including product management, user experience (UX) and data science.

LogicMonitor also says that in this role, Matthiesen will be responsible for enhancing the company’s ability to provide companies with the full visibility and insights they need to cost-effectively maximise their IT environment’s resilience, performance and adaptability – “key elements for business success in today’s increasingly digital economy”.

“Taggart has a proven track record for building successful enterprise and consumer SaaS product teams that combine deep technical know-how with the empathy to fully understand and anticipate users’ needs,” said Christina Kosmowski, CEO, LogicMonitor.

“With Taggart joining LogicMonitor’s leadership team and heading product, we will be able to integrate innovations into our observability platform faster, continuing to set our customers up for success in an ever-changing tech landscape.”

Matthiesen joins LogicMonitor from Lyft, where as Vice President of Product he helped build and lead Lyft's autonomous driving initiatives. Prior to this, he held product leadership positions across Lyft’s pay platform, identity & fraud, service & support, mapping, and Lyft for Business.

Prior to Lyft, Matthiesen served as a Group Product Manager at Twitter, where he created and led the company’s Data Product Group. Before joining Twitter, he was Senior Director of Product at Salesforce, leading teams across Salesforce's developer and analytics platforms.

"Observability tools have always been key to building and delivering great products. From monitoring top level metrics, such as ride requests and ETAs, to more detailed diagnostics and insights, like identifying fraudulent vectors or outdated turn restrictions – observability tools are essential to delivering a resilient platform and providing the best possible user experience,” said Matthiesen.

“I see great growth potential in the observability space and LogicMonitor is in a unique position within that space, with an incredible team and product.”

LogicMonitor notes that Matthiesen is the latest seasoned executive to be added by Kosmowski to the LogicMonitor C-suite since her appointment as CEO in January of 2022 - and this hire reflects Kosmowski’s focus on building “the strongest executive leadership team in the unified observability market” - which now includes Ryan Worobel as Chief Information Officer, Nitin Navare as Chief Technology Officer, Carol Lee as Chief Financial Officer, Will Corkery as Chief Revenue Officer, Alyene Schneidewind as Chief Performance Officer and Julie Solliday as Chief Customer Officer. Ryan Kam, Chief Marketing Officer and Yvonne Schroder, Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.

Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
