Morain's career-path has followed technology innovation and gained her an industry reputation for keen business strategy and leadership excellence. She was a pioneer in the early development of the integration of discovery tools into assets systems. Most notably, she was responsible for the integration to Remedy of the Marimba products, relationship with BMC Patrol and many of the concepts that evolved into what BMC coins as Business Service Management that led to the acquisition of Marimba and transformation of the IT Industry.

She has a strong understanding and focus around regulatory compliance, partnerships and key hurdles large Enterprises and ISVs face in today's global market.

"Similar to Business Service Management, I see Application Virtualization as the next great paradigm shift in IT. Customers are looking to reduce the number of agents on the endpoint and reduce the growing costs of Software License Management while increasing their ability to deliver Business Services in today's mobile enterprise," said Morain. "I see Thinstall as being uniquely poised to untether applications from their OS dependencies and enable IT to deliver self-service enabled solutions that comply with regulatory, business, and technology directives. I am excited to join Thinstall at this important juncture to bridge the gaps in the market to realize the full potential of Application Virtualization as the missing link for full value realization of Asset Lifecycle Management from Cradle to Grave."
