Raj Jalan

Founder & CEO

Raj Jalan, previously an IT consultant for numerous companies, recognized that many corporate data centers lacked the visibility and control they require to most effectively manage both planned and unplanned changes within their IT infrastructure.

When Raj looked for DCIM tools to help, he found very expensive, non-integrated point solutions that simply didn't deliver the functionality that data center managers require. This motivated him to start Device42.

Today, as CEO, Raj’s experience and insight continue to fuel Device42’s technology innovation and corporate growth.

When he’s not working, Raj enjoys running, photography, and board games -- with “Settlers of Catan” being his favorite.
