Michael Keen - Why I Joined Workspot

by Michael Keen on Mar 14, 2017 7:57:48 AM

You ever have that feeling that you've been wandering the universe for years trying to find your "home"? I have. I've spent the past several years bouncing around the industry in numerous capacities; CTO, Technology Evangelist, Consultant, Solution Architect - until now. I've finally reached my destination, the "home", that I've been searching for. It's rare that you find a place in this industry that speaks to you this way. It speaks to me calmly and simply, and says I'm valued and wanted. 

I've now been onboard Workspot only a month, yet after all these years I've spent in the desktop and application virtualization market I find myself in a place where my favorite term I used with CIOs and IT executives finally rings true for me. In one of my favorite books, “The Art of Innovation”, Tom Kelley borrows this term from George Carlin; vuja dé; It means taking a look at something familiar with a new perspective as if you had never seen it before, and with that new perspective developing a new line of sight into the future. 

My old perspective of VDI 1.0 was this.

Michael Keen - why VDI is Complex

Since joining Workspot, my view of how to achieve the goal of simplifying the delivery of virtual desktops and apps has been changed. No longer do you have to deploy and manage load balancers, databases, brokers, licensing servers, portals, provisioning servers. Workspot has implemented a cloud-native solution that replaces all these components with an infinitely scalable architecture built on micro-services.

Now my perspective of VDI 2.0 is this:

There is a quote by the physicist Martin H. Fischer that really speaks to me: "Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification." It's now time for me to leverage my 20 years of wisdom in this space and share with our customers the power and simplicity that is Workspot.
