Brendan O'Brien is Chief Innovation Officer and Co-founder at Aria Systems.

O’Brien is the industry’s foremost thinker on IoT and recurring revenue: enabling new business models, providing multi-dimensional customer choice, and ultimately increasing revenue. The number-one ranked cloud-billing provider, Aria, empowers enterprises to monetize a wider variety of product offerings, retain their customers for longer periods of time, and grow recurring revenue at scale. Trained as a professional stage actor and classical tenor, in the mid ‘90s Brendan realized coding paid better than acting.
