It's easy to talk about how well your company is doing, but the proof is in the revenue (generally private) and in the people (generally public).
I know that Hyperic is doing well on the revenue side, but I'm particularly glad to see it doing so well in attracting exceptional talent to its team. This week Hyperic announced that it has hired Matt Stodolnic, former vice president, Interactive Marketing and Creative Services at Salesforce.com, as its vice president of Marketing.
With how well Salesforce.com has been doing, it's a real testament to Hyperic's opportunity that Stodolnic chose to leave the SaaS CRM leader after seven years.
You can judge a company by the money it generates and the company it keeps. In Hyperic's case, it's doing very well on both counts.
