PARIS, March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Ipanema Technologies, the industry leader of WAN Governance solutions for enterprise networks and application centric services, today announces the appointment of Rogier van der Wal (http://www.ipanematech.com/en/Rogier-Vanderwal) as Vice President of Cloud Services.
Van der Wal, who heads a newly-formed cloud services business unit, is responsible for defining Ipanema Technologies' cloud services strategy leveraging Ipanema's technology to penetrate new markets.
"Today companies embrace cloud and Internet applications to reduce costs and increase flexibility in managing their IT systems, and they expect to have a similar or better application user experience. To illustrate this, by 2015, 74% of them will use cloud services with an average of 3.3 cloud services (Microsoft "SMB Cloud Adoption Study 2011"). However, unresponsive applications lead to user frustration and loss of productivity," said van der Wal.
"The benefits companies receive from cloud and Internet based applications can come at the cost of end user experience, in which case the cloud promise is not met. With the adoption of cloud and Internet applications, guaranteeing application performance becomes more critical than ever," continued van der Wal. "Ipanema Technologies is moving aggressively to address this need, so companies will be able to take full advantage of Internet and cloud applications without having to worry about the end-user experience and application performance. The applications will just work."
"Ipanema Technologies is pleased to have Rogier take on this new role overseeing our cloud services initiative, leading the effort to help customers fully take benefit of cloud services," said Jean-Yves Leclerc, CEO and co-founder, Ipanema Technologies. "Rogier and the cloud services team will share their expertise and focus Ipanema's resources to help customers embrace the cloud with guaranteed application performance and a positive user experience."
Van der Wal, based in Ipanema's headquarters in Paris, brings experience working with customers and service providers on complex IT and managed service solutions. He joins Ipanema from UBIqube Solutions, where he defined and executed go-to-market strategies for service providers, channel and OEM partners.
