I have been working with virtualization technologies since the mid-nineties, when I cut my teeth on Insignia NTrigue, a technology that was acquired by Citrix in January 1998.

I then went on to roll-out the world's first Terminal Server implementation based on Windows 2000 (which we went live with in 1999).

A proud moment was when the project received a mention in one of Steve Ballmer's keynotes during the launch of Windows 2000.

Since then, I got the bug, and have been evangelizing about the benefits of virtualization in its various guises ever since!

I got involved with RES in January 2006, as I saw the benefit in Workspace Virtualization (separating the user from a specific device)... one of the pain points I had ran in to myself during previous projects.

I found the top down approach appealing... deal with the User first and foremost, and everything else will follow with less impact and no downtime – a concept that is even more important today with the advent of hosted virtual desktops and complex operating system migrations.

I love the continual challenge we get from customers on a daily basis, and every day in Product Management is different from the last.

RES were acquired by Ivanti in July 2017, and we are in the midst of integrating our technologies to provide the complete solution.

Technology moves so quickly, it certainly keeps life interesting!
