Red Pill Welcomes Viktor Krantz

Red Pill Now is pleased to announce that it has engaged the services of Viktor Krantz as Director – Modernization Solutions. Viktor’s responsibilities include the coordination of our new Take 5 solution that offers an independent, one-stop solutions for Domino application modernization. We have searched high and low to identify the leading modernization solutions for Domino applications and are now offering customers a carefully developed process that starts with the establishment of a high level strategy for application modernization that meets each customers specific needs before moving on to match a set of up to 5 solutions that best meets those needs. We have also searched high and low to assemble a team of people with the necessary expertise and skills that can handle all the complexities that are often found in a modernization project so that the customer experience is a much simpler one.

Viktor has many years of experience working with Notes and Domino. Many will know Viktor from the work he did at SNAPPS and the entertaining sessions “The Great Code Giveaway” he did alongside Rob Novak at Lotusphere each year. For the past five years Viktor has been working at IBM where he was responsible for  IBM DoubleCheck, a service which allows customers to undertake an analysis of their Domino environment using Panagenda’s iDNA. Viktor’s deep knowledge of Notes/Domino combined with his experience helping customers with DoubleCheck makes him ideal for his new role at Red Pill Now. He will be joining IBM Champion Devin Olson as part of a new team at Red Pill Now focusing on helping customers be successful in getting the most out of their investment in the Domino platform. I am very excited to have Viktor as part of this team.
