4. Chris Kemp, CEO, Nebula, Co-founder OpenStack - Top IT Influencers
Chris not only leads an IaaS company to enable the creation of scalable private clouds via small servers, but also co-founded the initiative that created the cloud operating system OpenStack, but was also CIO and CTO at NASA, was a member of the White House Cloud Computing Executive Steering Committee, and the chair of the Cloud Standards Working Group. Nebula may not have the exposure of Microsoft or Google, but Kemp represents a new generation of entrepreneurs with the drive to reinvent enterprise computing. Kemp has every opportunity to be the next Sergey Brin or Mark Zuckerberg.
