DISCOVER FRANCE-IX’S NEW BOARD COMMITTEE

The vote results have marked another record: the number of voters, which reached 150 participants for 340 electors, representing 44% of our members and thus exceeding the requested quorum of 25%. 

At the end of the vote closed on the 20th of September, the 2017-2018 accounts were approved (128 yes, 0 no, 22 abstentions) and 3 members of the Board Committee were elected, marking the first time in France-IX’s history that the Board sees women joining in. The 3 members who have been elected as individuals, are the following:

Stéphane Bortzmeyer (re-elected as an individual this time)

We would like to warmly thank Hans-Peter Ligthart for his participation in these elections. Our special thanks go to Benoît Plessy and Yvan Lyko for their involvement within the Board these past three years.

WHITEPAPER: THE CONNECTED ENTERPRISE

We had the pleasure to be invited to participate in a whitepaper developed by our long-standing partner Interxion, aimed to understand the network challenges that enterprises face today. This paper explores the strategic connectivity options available to enterprises and network operators, including whether traditional models and architectures are sufficient to support their digital business transformation.

In the whitepaper, Delphine Masciopinto, CCO of France-IX, delivers her insights on how Internet Exchanges have the potential to serve as a key element of the evolving enterprise architecture.
