Paul Glynn, CEO, Davra Networks

Irish internet of things (IoT) entrepreneur and CEO of Davra Networks Paul Glynn has been named one of the Top 25 Disrupters among channel-focused tech business in the US, along with the CEOs of HP and Amazon.

The entry in CRN’s list of industry leaders for 2014 recognises Glynn and the Davra Networks team for the development of their RuBAN software platform, which allows systems integrators and value-added resellers (VARs) to quickly and easily provide a range of practical solutions in the cloud for the IoT market.

Davra Networks was founded in 2011 with US$2m in seed funding. Its research and development arm is in Dublin, with a sales and business development team working out of Sunnyvale, California. The company also has offices in the UK, Germany and Australia.

Davra Networks came out of stealth mode in June 2014 to launch an end-to-end, cloud-based platform offering new capabilities for system integrators and network VARs wishing to quickly and easily provide useful solutions in the cloud for the IoT market. 

Earlier this year, CRN also recognised Davra Networks as one of the 10 Coolest Networking Startups Of 2014.

“It’s a great honour for me to be listed among the top 100 leaders for the channel alongside luminaries such as the CTO of Hewlett-Packard and the CEO of Amazon and SanDisk,” Glynn said. 

“Davra Networks has been teaming with key system integrators and channel partners to offer solutions that gather and make sense of the vast quantity of information associated with the IoT market.”
