Douglas O'Flaherty

Portfolio Manager, Spectrum Scale

Douglas came to IBM with a background that includes several start-ups, a few publicly traded companies and a handful of open source projects. His focus has been on introducing new technology into the marketplace, including x86-64, online game rentals, Linux, and parallel-NFS. An advocate of Lean methodologies, Douglas brings expertise with experience in cloud, product management, go-to-market strategy, product marketing, and enterprise software development. A graduate of Yale University in Physics and a former member of IASTE Local 1 and USA 829, he lives near Boston and hopes you don’t hold that against him. Douglas has lived on four continents; worked professionally in three. His only wish would be to speak fluently in something aside from English, but he still practices his Spanish whenever he can.
