SOA Software’s Roberto Medrano Selected by ExecReps as a Top CMO Worldwide

Roberto Medrano, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of SOA Software, an API Management and SOA Governance leader, has been positioned as #12 on ExecReps' ExecRank listing of the nation's top 250 CMOs for 2013. Using a proprietary algorithm based on performance in 24 key areas, ExecRank evaluated more than 15,000 CMOs to select the current year's top 250.

"Roberto is a master of what might be one of the most challenging forms of marketing," said Pavan Sethi, Lead Analyst for ExecRank, the research division of ExecReps. "He’s responsible for bringing a new, disruptive technology to a target audience that hasn’t quite gelled. He has to think at least half a dozen steps ahead of where the market currently sits. That’s what he does with API management and other emerging technologies."

Medrano is responsible for worldwide marketing at SOA Software, which has operations in North America, EMEA, the EU and Asia-Pacific. Over the last decade, his contributions have led SOA Software to achieving industry-leading vendor status. Today SOA Software has become the de-facto standard in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) governance and API management software in numerous global 2000 enterprise accounts. Further Medrano has influenced SOA Software’s rise to top positions in many of the industry’s prestigious analyst rankings.

Medrano is a recognized executive in the information technology fields of SOA, API Management, internet security, governance, and compliance. Experienced in both start-ups and large companies, Medrano served as General Manager of Hewlett Packard’s E-Services and Internet Security division becoming one of their top 100 executives. He has held executive positions at Finjan, Avnet, and Sun Microsystems. He participated in President Clinton’s White House Security Summits, the White House National Cyber Security Summits, and the White House National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace. Additionally Medrano has been ranked one of “The Top 100 Most Influential Hispanics in the US” and the “100 Most Influential Latinos in Silicon Valley.”

"This is a great honor," Medrano said. "Our whole organization at SOA Software is committed to thought leadership in leading technologies for the enterprise. I’m fortunate to work with a great team and have the opportunity to market a standout product in a very important space."

ExecRank reports that, among CMOs, 2013 was highlighted by considerable focus on multiplatform content, content marketing and engagement strategies that cut through the white noise to generate a positive return on investments. The year also saw many marketing executives growing in recognition through publications, one of several forms of thought leadership that is factored heavily into these rankings, as well. The 2013 ranking includes CMOs from Apple, Wal-Mart Stores, Nike, Dell, IBM, GE, Ford, Microsoft, Dunkin Brands, Seagate and Coca-Cola.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
