Condusiv Technologies Founder and Chairman Craig Jensen Announced as Chief Executive Officer

Inventor, Programmer, Software Visionary and Patent Holder Returns To Lead Next Stage of Growth and Product Innovation

BURBANK CA--(Marketwired - April 24, 2014) -  Condusiv™ Technologies, Corporation, the leader in high-performance software optimizing technology, people and businesses, today announced that 33 year IT veteran, Chairman and Founder, Craig Jensen, has joined the company's executive management team as its Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

Craig Jensen will play a critical role in shaping Condusiv's technology strategy and building upon the momentum of the company's I/O optimization software product line as the company embarks on its next phase of growth and leadership across transformative trends in virtualization, Cloud, Big Data, and Software Defined Data Centers.

"I am honored, energized and extremely excited to be back in a highly active roll at Condusiv. I have a strong team on board and with our V-locity acceleration software for virtual and physical environments we are poised to dramatically broaden and improve server and storage performance for the millions of users we have helped for 33 years. We will continue to evolve and build world class software that dramatically improves conditions at customer sites. We believe we have a great opportunity to be rewarded for doing that well and sharing that opportunity with our solutions provider partners," said Condusiv's new CEO, Craig Jensen.

As the company's original Founder and Chairman, Craig built one of the most successful software companies in the information technology marketplace. Condusiv Technologies Corporation (formerly Diskeeper Corporation) is the 12th oldest independent software company in the world.

Jensen went on to say "when a software product begins to take hold in a market, I know what needs to be done not only to support growth but how to accelerate exponential growth."

"Condusiv has just been recognized in a unique and impactful list of 'Cool Vendors' by Gartner Inc., recently awarded a 5-Star rating in CRN's 2014 Partner Program Guide, recognized by CIOReview Magazine as one of the Top 20 Most Promising Enterprise Software Companies of 2014, and our V-locity I/O optimization software was selected as a finalist in the Storage Magazine/SearchStorage.com 2013 Products Of The Year. 2014 will be a great year at Condusiv Technologies. Our next release of V-locity will be dramatic and notable, it's great to be back at Condusiv," said Jensen.

Condusiv Technologies' long run as one of the IT industry's top Software Companies is no coincidence. The company developed one of the industry's best-selling third-party software products in the marketplace -- Diskeeper -- and experienced accelerated growth in the PC market that led to over 45 million licenses sold and a 90% footprint in the Fortune 1000. Beyond file system management software, Condusiv developed world-leading caching technology that has been OEM'd by nearly every major PC manufacturer in the world and is installed on millions of laptops and ultrabooks world-wide. Condusiv's flagship V-locity® I/O optimization software product line has quickly amassed nearly 2,000 virtualization customers. Craig Jensen is not just a visionary by reputation but a visionary in fact. "I had some great success but I am not finished. There are big challenges facing our customers that the convergence of social media, mobility, cloud and information patterns have brought forth. Condusiv is in a great position to dramatically help and benefit our customers with innovative solutions that harness these forces to create and drive new business opportunities. I have returned to Condusiv because I want to support my team in realizing the goal of seeing their hard work make a big difference for our customers in a meaningful and prominent way."

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com...
There has been a lot of discussion recently in the DevOps space over whether there is a unique form of DevOps for large enterprises or is it just vendors looking to sell services and tools.

Unique or not, what does this mean for adopting DevOps in enterprise size organizations? He also explored differe...
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
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, includin...
The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.
