BigPanda Hires Michael Canon as VP of Worldwide Sales
Former New Relic and WebEx Sales Exec to Bring Leadership to Growing Team.
Mountain View, Calif., May 12, 2015 – BigPanda®, the data science platform for automating IT event correlation and incident response to reduce system and network downtime, announced today that it has hired Michael Canon as Vice President of Worldwide Sales.
”We were looking for someone who has made large companies successful, with recent success in startups,” said BigPanda CEO Assaf Resnick. “With his experience at New Relic and WebEx, Michael brings a proven ability to help grow companies by building top quality sales teams. He’s made it happen.”
BigPanda is a data science platform that automatically eliminates IT noise and prioritizes relevant alerts to help improve system performance and reliability. It notifies teams when critical incidents occur by clustering related alerts together and correlating them with infrastructure changes. This helps IT staff dramatically shorten the mean-time-to-recovery (MTTR) for their critical issues.
Canon is a graduate of San Jose State University in Finance, and has held roles at a number of Silicon Valley success stories including WebEx, Cisco, New Relic and Sauce Labs.
“BigPanda provides tremendous value for customers. It allows them to see critical issues far faster than ever before. No other platform unifies a monitoring stack into a single easy-to-use dashboard like BigPanda does,” said Canon. “No other tool helps our customers see all of their deployments and changes in the same place as incidents. And no other tool can notify an entire team about critical system outages in mere seconds.”
BigPanda’s mission is to change the way IT and DevOps teams manage and respond to the thousands of IT issues they face every day. BigPanda uses data science to automate the manual and time-consuming processes involved with IT Incident Management to meet the scale and fragmentation of modern data centers. BigPanda’s team has decades of deep experience in data science and data center infrastructure management. Founded in 2012, the company is backed by Sequoia Capital and Mayfield and headquartered in Mountain View, CA with offices in Tel Aviv.
