FSO Consultants Brzoska and Jacobs joined Xigent to help clients gain insight into network performance internally and across cloud service providers while adding to the depth of Xigent’s APM expertise. A key area of focus for both will be driving client adoption and enablement of FSO.

  2. Brzoska’s experience ranges from providing insights for application performance from oil rigs in the North Atlantic which resulted in significant cost avoidance and restoration of real time services, to working with a global shipping and logistics company to uncover errors and performance issues in the customer shipping portal increasing customer satisfaction and preventing churn to competitors, thus demonstrating the knowledge he will apply towards current and future Xigent clients.
  3. As a result of his love of problem solving, especially solving problems that have material impact on business, Dan will have an immediate impact on Xigent’s FSO capabilities.
