SADA Systems Appoints Google Cloud Leader Miles Ward to CTO

SADA Systems Inc.May 20, 2019

LOS ANGELES, Calif., May 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SADA Systems (SADA), the reigning Google Cloud Global Partner of the Year, has named Miles Ward its new Chief Technical Officer. Ward joins SADA from Google, where he was Director and Global Lead for Solutions at Google Cloud. He founded Google Cloud’s Solutions Architecture practice, built a Style-Detection AI API, and helped customers like Twitter migrate the world’s largest Hadoop cluster to public cloud. Ward’s expertise developing and deploying public cloud solutions, and his Google Cloud experience in particular, will be invaluable as SADA grows its professional and managed services portfolio.

As SADA CTO, Ward’s focus will be on driving SADA’s cloud strategy, reinforcing its engineering culture, and engaging with customers on their most complex and ambitious plans around Google Cloud. His timing in joining SADA couldn’t be better. Last month the company was named 2018 Google Cloud Global Partner of the Year, and in March, SADA sold its Microsoft business unit so it could focus exclusively on Google Cloud.

SADA has a long and successful history with Google Cloud. The company was a launch partner to Google on Google Apps (now G Suite) and has migrated over 3,000 companies to Google Cloud, including Colgate-Palmolive, Hunterdon Healthcare, TVG/Betfair, Media News Group, Hackensack Meridian Health and Marriott. As a Google Cloud Premier Partner, SADA provides a range of services to Google Cloud users, including technology consultation and assessment, planning and implementation, customization and development, change management and managed services.

“Miles’ deeply technical background at the cutting-edge of Google Cloud, including Anthos, makes him an ideal fit for SADA,” says Tony Safoian, president and CEO at SADA. “He is an extremely well-respected leader who will fit in perfectly with our innovation and engineering-centric culture. We are excited to add someone to our leadership team with tremendous experience in helping enterprise companies leverage Google Cloud to achieve real transformation. Our customers are going to benefit greatly from his ability to guide their cloud journeys.”

“I am absolutely geeked to join SADA as CTO,” says Ward. “Tony and the SADA team are the Gold Standard; nobody is faster, more innovative or more tenacious about their customer’s success than SADA. They know what’s up: the hard-earned experience, business acumen and technical chops they bring to the table unlocks the value, the opportunity of cloud. I am thrilled to join their team and help SADA, and its customers achieve even greater success.”
