Last month, well-known virtualisation company Parallels appointed a new vice-president and general manager for the APAC region, Jerry Huang.
Huang was in town to talk about Parallels’ Remote Application Server, and he met the media alongside Kevin Greely, Parallels’ country manager for Australia and New Zealand, to talk about it.
iTWire colleague Stephen Withers covered the announcement of Huang’s appointment in an article entitled "Huang hangs up his shingle at Parallels" but I decided to do a video interview with both Huang and Greely, which is embedded below, to get a lot more detail that a face-to-face affords.
Here’s the video interview with Huang and Greely, with the questions I asked listed below – please read on!
I started by introducing Huang, and Greely to the audience.
I then asked Huang and Greely to tell us a little about themselves and their history in the tech industry.
Both gentlemen then told us about how the Parallels business is going in Australia and the APAC region.
They then shared their "insights on the company’s regional plan and the challenges for IT departments in effectively scaling IT infrastructure, especially in a mature and dynamic market such as Australia".
We looked at how Parallels Access is an important part of the Parallels business today, and looked at trends in enterprise mobility in Australia and the rest of the region they could share, and how that dovetails with Parallels Access usage.
Next up was a look at the new Parallels Remote Application Server.
I then asked about the kind of costs businesses are looking at in implementing the Parallels Remote Application Server, and the experiences of users.
We delved into Parallels' distributor relationship in Australia, peeked into hints about the next version of Parallels Desktop, explored the best piece of advice both gentlemen had received to help them get where they are today, crystal-balled a look at the future, and listened to the final messages both had for iTWire viewers and readers, and for Parallels’ current and future customers.
