He is responsible for managing portfolio lifecycle and defining new products that meet the needs of the workstation verticals for remote access.

He holds an MBA from Kellogg School of Management, and Masters Degree of Engineering from France


Traditionally, remote workstation technology has been ideal for the large enterprise-class of users. This type of user has the resources necessary to invest in the infrastructure required to run specialized and graphics-intensive workloads from the data center. The need for purpose-built applications and the trend towards increased mobility further adds to IT management challenges, making remote access technology for workstations difficult for businesses with limited IT resources or expertise. Organizations across a variety of industries, including design, architecture and engineering, require the high-end visualization technology available in workstations, they are increasingly looking to capitalize on the potential of a seamless remote experience for their workforces, from anywhere, anytime.

As the desire for greater flexibility and productivity increases, so does the number of remote and mobile workers, particularly with the onset of BYOD. To date, delivering a remote visualization experience to SMBs across these verticals has been difficult. Smaller businesses do not operate with the same IT budgets nor do they have the same resources or skillsets at their disposal as large enterprises. Plus, they are not able to experiment with remote workstation technology due to the investment traditionally required to deploy such solutions.

But what if smaller organizations in graphics-intensive industries were able to benefit from anywhere, anytime access to high-end workstations without interruption? Imagine the convenience and the new levels of productivity that could take place. What if new ideas would be possible to organizations which can tap into talent pools outside of their local purview, or freeing workstation users from being tied to their desks?
