We welcome Dan Dosen back to the iManage Team!
One of the most common questions I get from customers and partners, who have watched us over the last 18 months as we transformed our products with Work 10 or the Work 10 Cloud, innovated with new offerings for security and governance, and markedly revamped our global customer support, is: “How has iManage been able to do so much so fast?”
And the answer is really quite simple: Great people build great products. We have had a maniacal focus on building out a team and a culture that enables us to be the best we can be. And now we’re expanding this team by welcoming Dan Dosen back to the iManage family as our newly appointed General Manager, Cloud Services, to lead this fast-growing segment of our business.
Dan brings over 20+ years of experience in enterprise content management both as a customer and a technology provider. He was most recently VP of Business Development at Microsystems and before that VP of Product Management at SaaS ECM vendor SpringCM. He also served with me for almost a decade as a core member of the team at iManage/Interwoven, driving market leadership through innovation, teamwork and a deep empathy for customer needs.
And now, he comes full circle back home to iManage with the same integrity and work ethic that we have known of him. He also brings fresh and valuable insights from his industry experiences during the few year hiatus from the company. I’m thrilled to have Dan back with us in this critically important role, especially as we are seeing more and more customers exploring the benefits of the iManage Cloud, as evidenced by the 200% increase in iManage Cloud customers quarter-over-quarter in 2016 alone.
In his new role, Dan will continue the mission to deliver our Work Product Management (WPM) solutions, that today provide the deep vertical functionality that our customers need, in a modern cloud architecture that ensures elastic scalability, reliability and performance. We take pride in providing state-of-the-art smart cloud computing solutions with uncompromising security standards.
You will have a chance to meet Dan, along with the rest of the iManage leadership team, Product Management and Customer Care, in just a few weeks, when we will host our second annual ConnectLive user conference – the largest gathering of iManage users under one tent – May 24-25th in Chicago and June 27-28th in London, with over 1,000 customers and partners expected. The entire iManage team has been preparing feverishly for months to share best practices, customer case studies and the roadmap for the future. Perhaps most importantly, the ConnectLive events provide an opportunity for us to interact face-to-face with and learn from our community of inspiring customers.
Over one million professionals at more than 3,000 organizations around the world rely on iManage to help them deliver great client work. The fact that we continue to attract top talent back to the company, all while delivering feature-rich solutions with impressive levels of growth, makes me believe that the next several years can be just as rewarding as our first 18 months as an independent company.
