Real Status, a leading software company specialising in the modelling and visualisation of infrastructure and IT applications, has appointed Craig Rowland to the position of Vice President of Sales.
Craig has more than 15 years of sales experience and has successfully led and grown a number of software, technology and services organisations. Craig started his career at Xerox before moving into the challenging world of software start-ups. He was seconded to the UK from Canada in 2000 to open up and run the EMEA office of Buystream.com. In 2005 Craig co-founded StrohlUK and led the company up until its acquisition by SunGard Availability Services in 2008.
Commenting on his new role, Craig said, “Real Status’ Hyperglance is the world’s first real-time IT modelling and visualisation software that enables enterprises to gain business context and insight about the performance of their IT systems by proving an end-to-end view of how all the components fit together. I’ve seen the demand for this from my work at SunGard. My key focus will be on increasing our current direct touch sales activity and Channel markets as well as initiating an OEM market in the near future. I look forward to contributing to the success of this exciting and dynamic organisation.”
Royce Murphy, CEO at Real Status said, “Craig’s background with SunGard’s continuity management software has given him insight into the enterprise market’s need to dynamically model the inter-dependencies between all of the IT components making up critical business services. Given the growing complexity in IT environments brought about by virtualisation, SOA and cloud-based computing, he has seen a great opportunity with Real Status to help customers understand which services are affected by IT problems and fix the most important issues faster with less cost. We are confident Craig can help us continue growing and building the company.”
