Spotlight on a Volunteer - January 2018

Darren Blumenthal
Alliance Solution Architect 
Accenture

An infrastructure Solution Architect in Accenture’s Ecosystem and Ventures Practice and a Top Ten finalist in the 2016 British Computer Society IT Industry Awards for IT Manager of the Year, Darren is an incredibly enthusiastic Volunteer leading the Automation & Cloud Builders SIG at Vivit.

With Darren’s background in infrastructure, his vision is to bring together all like-minded members to create a global community sharing their experiences and benefiting from showcasing new and innovative technologies within Micro Focus around Cloud and Datacentre Automation. In his own company, Darren’s creation of a technical training and development initiative for the global non-technical teams, called “Darren’s Power Hour,” is a great example of this. The humorous and engaging manner in which the content is delivered and the excellent participant feedback has resulted in these sessions being used to brief clients on new technology solutions from within their Ecosystems of Alliances – creating new opportunities for sales of both products and consulting services.

In his first year as SIG Leader, Darren, with the help of his Co-Leader Megan Glick, Product Marketing Manager at Microfocus, hosted two well received and informative webinars around the new Datacentre Automation Suites. And with the positive feedback and valuable suggestions from the SIG's members, he looks to run a further number of suggested demos and webinars as a staple in 2018.

Darren’s ability to use real world examples, unrelated to technology, to explain exceptionally complex technological ideas in simple terms is imperative to ensuring successful use and understanding of IT and is refreshing. We thank Darren for offering his time, passion, and enthusiasm to the community.
