Chief Executive Officer and Founder at TDi Technologies
Mr. William (Bill) Johnson formed TDi in 1991 and has served as President and CEO of TDi since its inception. Mr. Johnson founded TDi Technologies to deliver 24/7/365 infrastructure management for mission critical government and corporate networks. Mr. Johnson and his mission critical customers understood infrastructures had to be independent of the devices they were managing.
He is a recognized Thought Leader by such prestigious organizations as The SANS Technology Institute and the Software Security Institute – the first person to “sound the clarion call that we may be vulnerable to attacks via the baseboard management controller.” (www.sans.org)
Mr. Johnson has over 20 years of experience in the infrastructure management field. He is a regular speaker for professional IT organizations regarding data center automation and enterprise computing and has served on the Board of Directors of Connect, the worldwide HP user group.
Beginning in 1996, Mr. Johnson and his team were awarded patents for their innovative methods of “outside-in” infrastructure management, a paradigm where the infrastructure was being actively monitored and managed even if the O/S went down.
Prior to 1991, Mr. Johnson formed Johnson & Associates, serving as a management consultant specializing in network integration and design for enterprise computers.
Previously, the Federal Land Bank, Mostek Semiconductor, International Telecharge, and Alcatel (DSC) employed Mr. Johnson.
