Docker gets a new CEO
There is change in the air for #Docker, the company that, more than anybody else, helped make software containers popular among developers. But while Docker kicked off this movement, it’s now under pressure from the growing ecosystem of #Kubernetes -based services and other startups that threaten to drown out the earlier leader of this movement. So maybe it doesn’t come as a surprise that after four years at the helm of the company, Docker CEO Ben Golub today announced he is stepping down. Golub will be replaced by Steve Singh, who is joining Docker from #SAP. Singh joined SAP after that company acquired Concur, where he was CEO (so blame him if you have ever tried to find a hotel in Concur’s laughably bad search interface). He became Docker’s chairman in late 2016.
