BELFAST -- Vello Systems, a leading provider of open, converged networking and software solutions, and charter member of the Open Networking Foundation, opened the doors of its first dedicated offices of its Northern Ireland operation as part of its strategy to significantly expand its software and applications development capabilities in the region.

The site opening sees the next step in an ongoing process to position Vello more prominently in the European market and will allow the business to grow to over 70 new jobs in Belfast over a three-year period.

Vello president and chief executive Karl May commented that; “(he) was swayed after meeting representatives of other US technology companies which had set up here, such as the world's third largest software company, SAP.

“The European market represents a huge opportunity for Vello as a company and the opening of our Belfast operation shows our dedication to growing our presence in Europe and championing the uptake of applications and new network software architectures as genuinely ‘new’, business enablers.”

Growing confidence...
The recent Pacnet deal in Asia must have given Vello some confidence about expanding elsewhere. Nice to see one of the smaller networking and SDN companies expanding on its own.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
