He also spent eight years with Cisco Systems as an account manager.

Finn said he would be the first sales resource based in this region to accelerate the adoption of Puppet Enterprise.

"Puppet has a large open source community in Australia and Asia and has had very fast growth in the region," he said.

"I will be evangelising the benefits of moving to Puppet enterprise."

According to a company statement, Puppet is IT automation software that helps system administrators manage infrastructure throughout its lifecycle, from provisioning and configuration to orchestration and reporting.

Using Puppet, you can automate repetitive tasks, deploy critical applications, and manage change, scaling from 10s of servers to 1000s, on-premise or in the cloud.
