Johan has been at Scale Computing since 2016 and has over 30 year’s experience in technology sales and product management, with more than 10 of those focusing on reseller and distribution. Previously Johan worked at Springpath where he was responsible for driving their hyperconverged EMEA regional strategy as the Vice President and Managing Director of EMEA.

Johan has a proven track record in rapid international growth; under his direction Microsoft’s joint venture with SAP, Duet, was crowned the most successful business software introduction in Microsoft’s history.

In this talk, Johan will discuss why edge computing is changing the data centre as we know it, and how this innovative push to the edge is proving to be transformative for a wide variety of use-cases.
