Inflect, an open, neutral marketplace where buyers and sellers of Internet infrastructure – among which data center colocation, networking and related services – can find information to connect, collaborate and transact, is throttling up its product development and management engines with the addition of Josh Neuroth to the role of vice president, product. He joins Inflect from Digital Realty.
Formerly Global Product Manager at Digital Realty, Josh Neuroth takes the VP Product role to drive new features and capabilities in the Inflect platform.
“Complexity in the industry is only growing. Companies need to procure complex hybrid infrastructure across multiple providers and regions,” said Josh Neuroth. “Inflect is using data-science to build a product that is fundamentally transforming that process by leveraging the interests of both buyers and sellers, replacing frustration with a beautiful use experience for everyone involved. Building that product is an exciting challenge. The team has already made big strides in that direction, and I’m excited to be a part of that team.”
Digital Realty Service Exchange
At Digital Realty, Mr. Neuroth built the ordering wizard for on-demand SDN interconnection into the cloud, called Digital Realty Service Exchange. Prior to Digital Realty, Neuroth helped build an “award-winning” marketplace for more than 500 carriers, enterprises and cloud providers for Telx, which was later acquired by Digital Realty.
“A great product leader knows how to translate customer needs into a product roadmap and work with engineering to build a truly useful product,” said Mike Nguyen, founder and CEO of Inflect. “But very few have the vision and ability to build partner ecosystems, find new market opportunities and revenue streams. Josh has proven himself to be a great product leader with uncommon vision, attuned to the needs of both existing and potential partners and users.”
Buyers and sellers of infrastructure can use the Inflect platform free of charge. The Inflect platform would provide a data driven experience for both buyers and sellers, making it as easy to buy colocation and network resources as it would be to buy public cloud.
