"Wij zijn erg blij dat de heer Geust de rol van CEO op zich gaat nemen. Hij kent het bedrijf en de activiteiten heel goed. Met de herstructurering van de rest van het managementteam kan de heer Geust het bedrijf op de juiste weg helpen voor het uitvoeren van zijn strategische plan en de enorme belofte van het bedrijf vervullen," aldus Timo Tirkkonen, voorzitter van de Raad van Bestuur van Rightware. "Wij willen ook graag Tero Sarkkinen bedanken voor zijn diensten als CEO vanaf de oprichting tot nu toe gedurende een periode waarin het bedrijf zich gevestigd heeft, zijn producten op de markt heeft gebracht en gegroeid is, waardoor het nu activiteiten heeft op drie continenten. Wij kijken ernaar uit om dit succes in deze nieuwe functie binnen het bedrijf te zien worden voortgezet."

De heer Geust was lid van de Raad van Bestuur van Rightware en is sinds 2010 bij het bedrijf. Bovendien was de heer Geust CEO bij Havainne Oy. Daarvoor was de heer Geust meer dan 15 jaar bij Nokia, waar hij verschillende functies heeft bekleed, waaronder zijn laatste als vicepresident van de Nokia N-serie smartphones. In zijn nieuwe functie zal de heer Geust zich vanuit het hoofdkantoor van het bedrijf in Finland richten op het uitbreiden en het op een hoger niveau brengen van de activiteiten en technische aspecten van het bedrijf.

"Als een van de oprichters van Rightware is het mijn voorrecht geweest om het bedrijf door zijn eerste jaren te begeleiden om een van de leiders op ons gebied te worden. Na het opbouwen van de activiteiten van het bedrijf in Finland en China, is mijn volgende taak om hetzelfde te doen in de Verenigde Staten. Inmiddels is ons bedrijf zodanig gegroeid dat we meer topfunctionarissen in Finland moesten hebben. Ik ben er meer dan een jaar mee bezig geweest om Jonas bij ons team te krijgen en ik ben ervan overtuigd dat hij het bedrijf naar het volgende niveau kan brengen," aldus Tero Sarkkinen, oprichter van Rightware. "De operationele ervaring, het uitvoerende leiderschap en de capaciteiten van Jonas bij het brengen van nieuwe technologieën naar de wereldmarkt maken hem uitermate geschikt om de versnelde groeistrategieën van Rightware voor de toekomst te leiden."

Dit is de eerste van een aantal wijzigingen en herstructureringsinitiatieven die bedoeld zijn om het bedrijf en zijn positie voor succes op de lange termijn te versterken. Verder kondigde Rightware ook aan:

  • Jussi Tammi werd benoemd als vice president, financiële zaken. Voordat hij bij Rightware kwam, was Tammi de CFO bij EmblaCom in Finland.
  • Jari Selin is toegetreden tot het bedrijf als directeur van Kanzi Product Development. Voordat hij bij Rightware kwam, was Selin senior Engineering Manager bij Nokia. Hij zal toezicht houden op alle R&D van Kanzi.

"Deze wijzigingen brengen tot op heden een uitstekende groep doorgewinterde leiders samen met een breed scala aan talenten en vaardigheden en een bewezen geschiedenis voor het leveren van resultaten en het bereiken van doelstellingen," aldus Timo Tirkkonen, voorzitter van de Raad van Bestuur.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
