DataArt Launches Dedicated Telecom Practice

Last updated:

DataArt, a global technology consulting firm that creates end-to-end solutions for enterprise clients in select industries, today announced the launch of a dedicated Telecom Practice, which will focus on building high-performance, cost-effective, scalable, secure infrastructure and solutions for telecom providers.

Telecom industry figure Michael Lazar will lead the new practice.  Lazar has served in C-level positions in system design, custom engineering and software development with major telecommunication solutions providers around the world. In his new role, he will implement strategies to drive growth in the telecom sector and support DataArt’s clients.

“The network functions virtualization (NFV) software market is estimated to reach over $9 billion by 2019, signaling a major shift in the telecom sector focus from hardware to software, creating a major opportunity for DataArt,” said Eugene Goland, President of DataArt.

“We are delighted that we have managed to attract the top talent in Michael to such an exciting area.”

Michael Lazar joined DataArt in 2016 to lead the company’s telecom practice, focusing on the most demanding areas of the marketplace – systems performance, Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Networking (SDN) and telecoms security.  He is a veteran of the telecommunications industry and for the past twenty years has held a range of C-level positions.

Prior to joining DataArt, Mr. Lazar was Chief Technology Officer of Veloxum/Ambicom Holdings where he was responsible for developing system optimization software, and before that CTO of Network Physics, where he led the design and development of Voice over IP (VoIP) and Financial Information exchange (FIX) monitoring software. Prior to the CTO role, Michael was VP of Customer Advocacy at Network Physics, in charge of worldwide pre-sales engineering, post sales support, and custom engineering. Prior to Network Physics, Michael held senior technical roles at Datatec Systems and Spirian Technologies, Inc.

Mr. Lazar holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics from New York’s Queens College and holds a patent for Systems and Methods of Tuning an Operating System, Application or Network Component.

With years of experience serving telecom clients, and a mature, professional team of developers and technology consultants dedicated to the telecom industry, the new practice will focus on creating solutions for virtualized infrastructures and converged networks, including virtualization security, application and service scalability, performance monitoring and big data analytics.

“The telecommunications industry is undergoing a revolution. As telecom providers are moving away from closed, proprietary systems and embracing open standards and open source software, they have to continue delivering high quality solutions with exceptional reliability, while virtualizing functions and services, reshaping their network architecture, and deploying innovative applications,” said Michael Lazar, head of the telecom practice.

“DataArt has been working with global clients across other industries that have experienced similar challenges, and we’re well equipped to apply our expertise in the telecom sector.”

DataArt will be at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, on February 22-25, 2016, exhibiting with Canonical (a commercial sponsor of the Ubuntu project). DataArt will demonstrate the process of building a virtual conferencing application that can handle millions of subscribers, scale the infrastructure up and down, intelligently and automatically, in a matter of seconds. Canonical Cloud Pavilion, Hall 3, Booth #3J30.
