We are pleased to announce that Matthijs van Vliet has joined Simtech’s Advisory Board with a primary focus on the Simtech cloud portfolio (DBaaS, IaaS, OpenShift & Managed Services). He brings extensive experience in sales leadership and business development to the team. Matthijs will be in charge of formulating and executing our sales and diversification strategies and identifying new market opportunities to support our rapidly growing DBaaS product line.

Matthijs has more than 20 years of experience in business development and sales and has spent well over a decade in senior executive roles, spanning multiple industries in the IT sector. He has held previous senior sales management positions at MongoDB, SAS, Oracle, METRI, Software AG, EMC, Compuware, Rational Software, and ADP. Most recently, he focused on driving business growth for ServiceMax in the field management industry.

Matthijs joins Simtech to spearhead the launch of a unique DBaaS platform that brings public cloud capabilities on-premise, combining IaaS, automatic database provisioning, and license compliance management.

“I’m delighted to be joining the Advisory Board at Simtech at such a pivotal stage in the company’s development. I am confident that I can support its continued growth, in line with the expansion plans, to develop its business and propositions to benefit customers during these difficult economic times. Opportunities like this don’t come along that often. Simtech has already proven itself as one of the most innovative and respected companies in the managed services sector. I am looking forward to helping realize the potential of this fast-growing company’s DBaaS Private Cloud product line, which automates the provisioning, administration, backup, recovery, availability, security, and scalability of the database, reducing the time spend by the database administrator (DBA) by 50%.”
