Kamran is one of the original founding team at Storage Made Easy and, along with CEO Jim Liddle, has been one of the key contributors to company growth. From 2013 to 2016 Kamran was the VP Engineering of the company, defining architecture and roadmap for the Enterprise File Fabric solution. After a year away from the business, Kamran takes up his new position as company CTO and Kamran will drive strategic analytic and compliance initiatives to maximize Storage Made Easy’s impact with customers and prospects.
Commenting on his appointment, Chief Technology Officer Kamran Yousaf said, “It’s great to work for an organization that strives for excellence. I am pleased to be back at Storage Made Easy at such an exciting time in the company’s evolution as a leading player in the data fabric space.”
Announcing the news, Jim Liddle, CEO, said, “I am thrilled that Kamran is back where he belongs and I look forward to working closely again with him. We are at an exciting time in the company’s history. In the past, only financial institutions had to run their company as a walled garden. Now, with the advent of GDPR and increasingly stricter compliance, every company must implement privacy and security by design. Our File Fabric acts as a non invasive event based proxy for all data based applications, providing a true event based file system for consolidated corporate data sets and given Kamran’s big data, low latency, analytics background, I know that he will strive for increased product excellence.”
