Today, I’m excited to share that our CTO, John Gentry, has received one of the industry’s highest honors and was named to Information Age’s Global Leader list. One of eight people chosen for this prestigious award, John was honored for his industry thought leadership, his work at Virtual Instruments and, most importantly, his tireless commitment to ensuring that our customers and partners are experiencing the greatest and most meaningful value to move their businesses forward.
The Global Leader list is part of the Information Age Data 50 list, which “recognizes the top individuals and companies driving data innovation and business value in the enterprise.” John embodies this on a daily basis. Known as the “voice of the customer” here at Virtual Instruments, he travels the world and works day in and day out with our customers to help them transform their IT infrastructures, digitize their businesses, protect their critical assets, and implement new hybrid IT projects.
In addition, John is a known subject-matter expert and thought leader within the enterprise IT industry, as he has a strong visionary foresight, which is combined with the ability to help our customers execute and achieve meaningful results and realize instant value. John hunts out new industry trends and speaks daily with customers to ensure he’s talking through real-world issues and not just market or vendor hype.
In no small part due to John’s leadership, Virtual Instruments offers enterprises a complete end-to-end view of performance across the infrastructure – from storage through to applications, as well as deep server, IP network, virtualization and cloud monitoring. This visibility helps customers understand how their infrastructure is performing, letting them proactively spot opportunities to improve overall performance and manage operations as workload conditions change or data volumes increase.
