Historically, the entire infrastructure of an organization was managed by the organization on its premises. However, with the advancement of technology, focusing on multiple business requirements, this model grew to be insufficient in terms of accessibility and cost-effectiveness. In the last several years, the course of IT Infrastructure Management Systems (IMS) has changed, offering organizations the ability to leverage on and off-premise resources as a part of their team, ultimately reducing the costs and improving the efficiency of the system collectively. Now IMS provides a wide range of offerings in a variety of business models. From providing IT administrative and networking support to helping clients in strategic planning on outsourcing or setting up data centers, the infrastructure management solutions sector today provides significant inputs and services to its clients that impact their success directly. It may sound complex because it indeed is.
Streamlining the complexity of IT management, Kaseya provides IT professionals with simple yet powerful solutions. Kaseya is the leading provider of IT infrastructure management solutions for both external service providers (also known as managed service providers or MSPs) and internal IT professionals working within small to mid-sized businesses. Kaseya delivers best in breed technologies that allow organizations to efficiently manage, secure, and backup their IT, through an integrated platform and customer-centric approach.

CEO Leading the Vision, Strategy, and Growth of Kaseya
Fred Voccola, the CEO of Kaseya has had an incredible journey for more than a decade as a technology executive. His striking record of repeated success for building and managing sales, product, marketing, R&D and business development organizations landed him at Kaseya five years ago to elevate the company through its rapid growth and development phase. Voccola says he was highly influenced by his father who was also part of the technology industry and that as a child, he witnessed how disruptive the technology industry was and the power that technology had over driving a company’s overall success. This enticed him toward the field. Earlier in his career, Mr. Voccola co-founded and served as COO at Identify Software, substantially growing the business during his five-year tenure there, culminating in a sale to BMC Software. Prior to joining Kaseya, Voccola served as president and general manager of Yodle’s Brand Networks Division, providing digital and market automation solutions to small and medium businesses. In 2016, Yodle was successfully sold to Web.com (NASDAQ: Web).
Providing Strong Leadership to the Team
As it is famously quoted, “If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room.” Mr. Voccola believes that the CEO should never be the smartest person in the room. Instead, the CEO should be surrounded by intelligent individuals that can push the business to new heights by bringing new, differing perspectives on how to solve customer issues. As the CEO of Kaseya, Voccola is a dynamic leader with his team, who strives to achieve complete customer satisfaction. Therefore, he strives to stay transparent and to constantly share his vision with his team. Voccola also believes that being vulnerable and accepting that you can be wrong is essential to promoting the freedom of making mistakes and learning from them. This encourages workers to own their errors and honestly work on making those errors right. Voccola says he promotes an open-door policy, fosters healthy debates, and encourages creative thinking among individuals, which results in the breeding of innovative ideas. These unique leadership practices benefit the staff as well as Kaseya customers.
From his extensive experience, Voccola has realized that the technology industry has no fixed hierarchy to be followed or worked accordingly. All that matters is the result and he is successful in delivering excellent results. He makes sure that his organization works around this philosophy and delivers the best results to their clients.
