Embedded Executive: Kevin Dallas, President/CEO, Wind River

Wind River has been king of the RTOS hill for a long time. We can debate whether they are still the reigning king.


But now, since last February, the company finds itself under new leadership, with the appointment of Kevin Dallas as President and CEO. And the company is undergoing a transformation. That transformation is into an intelligent systems platform company, one that looks far beyond the RTOS. Hear it right from the horse’s mouth in this week’s Embedded Executives podcast.

PS: Have you seen the Wind River web site lately? I have to admit it had been a while for me, and it’s very different from what used to be there. Check it out.
