Det norske programvareselskapet QuestBack har vært gjennom 12 år med sammenhengende vekst og stor suksess både i Norge og internasjonalt. Ivar Kroghrud har sittet ved roret hele veien, og har også gjort seg personlig bemerket i kåringer som bl.a. Entrepeneur Of The Year. Kroghrud har også en betydelig aksjepost i selskapet. «Jeg tror det er sunt for QuestBack å slippe nye krefter til i den fasen selskapet er inne i nå,» sier Kroghrud, som fra 1. februar inntar en rolle som strategisk rådgiver i QuestBack, i tillegg til styrevervet.

Terje Bakken, QuestBacks styreformann, sier «Ivar Kroghrud har gjort en fantastisk jobb i å bygge opp et norsk programvareselskap i verdensklasse og vi er glade for at vi får beholde ham videre også i ny rolle. QuestBack er nå unikt posisjonert og tar mål av seg til å bli verdensledende i sin nisje. Vi er svært tilfreds med at vi får med oss en så erfaren leder som Frank Møllerop, som vi vet har alle de kvalifikasjoner som skal til for å lykkes med en så ambisiøs målsetting.» Før han tar over lederansvaret i QuestBack har Møllerop i mange år hatt topplederstillinger i andre IT selskaper som SAS Institiute og Infostream ASP. «Vi gleder oss til å jobbe sammen med Frank og støtte ham i jobben med å skape fortsatt vekst og suksess for QuestBack,» avslutter Bakken.

Frank Møllerop, påtroppende CEO, sier «Jeg har fulgt med på QuestBack fra sidelinjen i mange år, som et av Norges aller mest spennende IT-selskaper. Når denne muligheten kom, følte jeg det matchet meget godt med det som har vært min viktigste driver lenge, nemlig å skape bærekraftig topplinjevekst i software-selskaper. I tillegg er produktporteføljen til QuestBack perfekt posisjonert for de nye IT-trendene rundt feedback, sosiale medier og lønnsom utvikling av kunderelasjoner. Det ligger ett stort uforløst potensiale for alle virksomheter i å ta i bruk de produktene som QuestBack tilbyr markedet.» Frank Møllerop kommer fra stillingen som Vice President i Global Energy Business Unit i SAS Institute Inc, og overtar roret i QuestBack 1. Februar 2013.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
