Michael's career has focussed on the academic and commercial application of scale-out and massively parallel computing technology. Having previously founded two companies in the High Performance Computing space, Michael set up Concertim in order to build technology that would help data centre operators optimise their use of energy by consolidating the management of IT and facilities. As data centres become increasingly large and complex, Michael believes that new approaches will be required in order to manage operational efficiency at scale.

Gordon is a technically focused professional who has spent over 20 years working in and around data centres. He has worked for end user, reseller, vendor and out sourcing/integration companies. He has been directly involved for many years with developing software in many different markets: analytical data processing, HA clusters and HPC. He joined Concertim in 2010 to focus on turning what was primarily an HPC cluster management tool into the now successful DCIM tool. Software scalability has always been a key issue and Gordon strives to produce a "best of breed" scalable DCIM product capable of dealing with today's large and diverse data centres.
