- Why Dizzion
Today, in honor of Dizzion’s sixth anniversary, co-founder and CTO Robert Green looks back on the Dizzion journey. We already heard from co-found and CEO, Steve Prather, but Rob reflects on how Dizzion’s technology and solution offerings have evolved over the past few years.
The company vision has not really changed over the years. We have just matured and adapted in certain areas to not only survive but thrive. We started with a grandiose idea of creating an End User Computing (EUC) platform. Problem was that six years ago not many folks understood what that meant nor did they understand the value such a platform would provide. We wanted to climb a huge mountain but we knew we had to start at Base Camp 1. For us that was VDI. It was easy, so we thought.
Delivering integrated high quality VDI at scale took us about two years to perfect. It took us so long as we had to adapt to the enterprise customer versus the small to medium size business we initially targeted. Then we iterated once more but this time we focused on Base Camp 2 (streaming applications), then the next year Base Camp 3 (compliance).
Every year we get closer and closer to realizing the dream of an EUC platform. What is most exciting is our ability to iterate and build products that are impactful that our customers love. We plan to continue our integrative approach at solving complex problems for our customers, adding value each and every day.
The market is more cloud friendly. Many of our customers back in the early days were still skeptical of what to put in the cloud. Now we see a big “cloud first” push.
I am most proud of the customers we have been able to help grow their business and our employees.
We never realized that the desktop was a Tier 0 app. That means it can never go down. In the early days we thought 8am – 8pm at most and we would be able to patch and update with no problems. That is definitely not the case. This platform has to be up 100% of the time so that has posed some tough engineering challenges that our team of architects and engineers have to navigate through.
More products and reaching the next base camp. We have delivered over 40 new products and services over the last six years. I don’t ever think we will be finished driving new products and services. As the market changes and business problems arise, you can bet on Dizzion to be there was a simple, reliable and effective solution.
