MEA Hyper Converged System Manager

Alan Browning is Lenovo’s MEA Hyper Converged System Manager and brings over 18 years of IT experience. He acquired his experience by working for a myriad of companies, including Barclays Africa, MTN, Dimension Data and Gijima, where he specialised in end-user computing, cloud and virtualisation.

He has also held numerous different positions, from virtualisation architect, to technology strategy consultant, cloud evangelist and head of IAAS engineering.
