Irishman named among world's disrupters

Wednesday, August 27 10:48:45

Paul Glynn, the Irish CEO of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions provider, Davra Networks, has just been named as one of the Top 25 Disrupters among channel-focused technology businesses in the US.

Mr Glynn is in good company, as he joins the CTO of HP and CEO of Amazon in CRN's List of Industry Leaders for 2014.

The list, published by CRN, a market leading news source for the North American IT channel, salutes the key players who continue to shape the way the channel does business and is part of the overall top 100 list, which honours 25 of the top influencers, sales leaders, innovators and disruptors in the IT channel.

This latest award recognises Glynn and the team at Davra Networks for the development of their unique RuBAN platform, which covers everything from utilising 'fog computing' to collecting data from sensors and presenting it as usable business intelligence accessible from the cloud.

Davra Networks has been making headlines since it came out of stealth mode in June 2014 to launch an end-to-end, cloud-based platform offering new capabilities for system integrators and network VARs wishing to quickly and easily provide a wide range of useful solutions in the cloud for the IoT market.

Earlier in 2014, Davra Network was also recognised as one of the 10 Coolest Networking Startups Of 2014 by CRN. "It's a great honour for me to be listed among the top 100 leaders for the channel alongside luminaries such as the CTO of Hewlett Packard and the CEO of Amazon and SanDisk, said Davra Networks, CEO, Paul Glynn. "Davra Networks has been teaming with key system integrators and channel-partners to offer solutions that gather and make sense of the vast quantity of information associated with the IoT market. We were also delighted to be honoured as one of the 10 Coolest Networking Startups Of 2014 by CRN earlier this year."

The Top 100 list is the 'Who's Who' of the IT channel, said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "Each individual on this list has left an indelible stamp on the IT channel this year. Some are industry veterans with innovative leadership styles. Others are rising stars who have demonstrated a deep commitment to the channel. All deserve recognition for helping push the channel forward toward new market opportunities."

The CRN Top 100 list is based on feedback gathered from technology solution providers throughout the year by CRN editors with rankings reflecting each company's channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, along with its business and sales impact on the IT channel. Among the criteria considered are channel sales volume, channel investment and resources, channel advocacy, and performance in research projects conducted by The Channel Company's CRN Intelligence research arm, including its esteemed Annual Report Card and Channel Champions reports.
