Paul Peissner
Director of Business

 Vivit Leader for the DevOps SIG and Silicon Valley/San Jose Local Chapter


For more than a decade he has built his IT Solutions career with a belief in 2 things...

1) User Communities and the collective wisdom it holds...and willingly share to help its members solve a problem

2) IT Platform offerings critical need for an Innovation Network of fast-moving 3rd parties' technologies that have the expertise and resources to solve complex and new problems that the Platform could not address in the short-term.

What drives Paul…

In working with IT customers, system integrators and technology providers, he has been amazed at how quickly people innovate when the "core problem” is presented to the "right person”. He sits in awe of how many "long-standing problems” can be permanently and globally fixed when the "right data and right relationships” can be connected. People have said that he has the "heart of IT development” in mind when he engages with business users and IT Operations teams. He believes DevOps is the effort that will pull all of IT together for organizations of all sizes.
