IDG's Computerworld has
the leader in hyperconverged infrastructure for the software-defined
data center, as one of its 2014 Best Places to Work in IT, one of 100
top organizations that challenge IT staff while providing great benefits
and compensation. SimpliVity was ranked ninth among small organizations
on Computerworld’s Best Places to Work in IT. Winning
organizations will be featured in Computerworld along with
results from the 21st annual Best Places to Work in IT survey.
“We are honored to be recognized by Computerworld as one of its
Best Places to Work in IT for the second consecutive year,” said Doron
Kempel, chairman and CEO of SimpliVity. “The success of our mission
rests on the shoulders of our team members. It is therefore essential
that we establish and maintain state-of-the-art conditions for
excellence, while growing 300 percent year over year.”
Today, IT organizations want the best of both worlds: On the one hand,
they want the economics that cloud computing provides; and, on the other
hand, they want the performance, control and protection they’re
accustomed to in their on-premises IT environment. SimpliVity offers its
Data Virtualization Platform delivered on hyperconverged infrastructure
that ensures performance, capacity, mobility, manageability, and
protection of virtual workloads while delivering cloud-scale economics.
SimpliVity’s mission is to simplify IT. The company is facing a
remarkably vibrant market opportunity, and has been expanding its
personnel to deliver on this mission. SimpliVity invests greatly in
programs and systems that facilitate growth, balancing the challenging
demands of a mission to revolutionize IT, with numerous benefits. All
team members hold stock options and participate in a quarterly bonus
program. This core investment is supplemented with a number of “perks,”
including free, high-quality lunches, such as the occasional sushi bar,
sundae bar or catered barbeque; state-of-the-art IT equipment, labs and
facilities; and 100 percent coverage of medical deductibles.
Recently placed in the Visionary quadrant in Gartner’s
Magic Quadrant for Integrated Systems, the company is experiencing
tremendous momentum and growth. SimpliVity increased headcount 100
percent in 2013, while rapidly growing its installed base and global
footprint. To support this rapid expansion, the company raised $58M in
Series C funding in November 2013 from investors Kleiner Perkins
Caulfield Byers, DFJ Growth, Meritech Capital Partners, Swisscom, and
Accel and Charles River, bringing its total investment to date to $101M.
"Hiring the best and the brightest IT pros, offering them competitive
pay and providing top-notch benefits is just the beginning for the
outstanding employers on this year's Best Places to Work in IT list,"
said Scot Finnie, editor-in-chief of Computerworld. "Both
newcomers to the list and rock-steady stalwarts nurture their talent
with challenging business-critical projects, extensive training
opportunities and ongoing career development programs. They invest in
their own futures by investing in their employees."

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
