Manu Heirbaut has been appointed as the company's engineering vice president.

Heirbaut takes over the role from Datadobi chief architect and co-founder Kim Marivoet to allow Marivoet to focus 100% on architecting the future products of unstructured data management that enterprises urgently need.

Heirbaut will continue to build on the company's long history of product success and innovation and be responsible for making sure that they meet the highest quality that Datadobi has become known for. He will report directly to Datadobi CEO Ian Leysen.

Heirbaut's appointment comes shortly after Datadobi announced the launch of StorageMAP, a new solution that provides a single pane of glass for organisations to manage unstructured data across their complete data storage estate, whether on-premises or in the cloud.

The software, built upon Datadobi's best-in-class vendor-neutral unstructured data mobility engine, enables end-users to visualise, organise, and act on their data in hybrid vendor and cloud environments.

"With the introduction of StorageMAP, Datadobi has solidified our position as the leader of the emerging unstructured data management market," Leysen says.

"StorageMAP, and our flagship product DobiMigrate, truly help enterprises harness the power of their unstructured data.

"As we continue to build upon our experience, we look forward to relying on Manu's expertise to drive customer success around the world."

Heirbaut brings over 20 years of experience in software development and building international engineering teams to Datadobi.

Prior to joining the company, Heirbaut worked at companies such as Inventive Designers, Telenet, and Sungard.

Most recently, Heirbaut served as the Director of Engineering at Unifiedpost Group.

"By now we all know that unstructured data is growing out of control. IT leaders are now questioning how they can truly manage their unstructured data in our multi-vendor, multi-cloud world," Heirbaut says.

"I look forward to expanding StorageMAP and working with the Datadobi team to truly give our customers the complete and highest quality solution they are looking for."
