Bernd Harzog is the CEO and founder of OpsDataStore. Bernd is responsible for the strategy, execution and financing activities of the company. Bernd founded OpsDataStore because every customer that he spoke to still had horrible service quality and capacity utilization problems, despite a massive investment in either purchased or homegrown tools. The core strategic principle underlying OpsDataStore is the belief that the pace and diversity of innovation is so high that no single vendor can possible keep up, and that therefore a best of breed ecosystem, anchored by a common high-speed big data back-end is the only viable solution to modern management problems.
