124 - Interview with Thomas Thalmann, CEO and founder, PoINT Software & Systems

Season 3, episode 124
17 min / Published

PoINT Software & Systems joined the recent 45th edition of The IT Press Tour early September in Paris, France. Thomas Thalmann, CEO of the company, updated the group on the company and the product line with Storage Manager, Archival Gateway and Data Replicator. Thomas also announced a new product, I should say an extension, to Archival Gateway with Unified Object Storage. It couples disk and tape under a single namespace and I anticipate some others in the future. We spoke about the genesis of the company, almost 3 decades ago, the various products, the new one, the installed base, the go-to-market model, the pricing philosophy and a bit of future. A very good episode and for sure with a company that many listeners will discover as the company is a bit confidential. Enjoy the listening. Thank you Thomas.
