Plutora Announces Partnership with RAD Motorsport Ltd at UK Customer Summit

Customer event will feature discussions with and presentations from the Plutora executive team and showcase the sponsorship of the #56 car driven by Richard Crisp

LONDON – Feb. 28, 2018 – Today at its exclusive UK Customer Summit, Plutora, the value stream management experts, announced a racing sponsorship with team RAD Motorsport for the upcoming 2018 Monoposto Championship in the Formula Renault Class. The event will be hosted by members of the Plutora executive team including, Dalibor Siroky, co-founder and CEO, Mahesh Baxi, VP of customer success, and Dain Cilley, sales director. The event will be an opportunity for Plutora customers to learn from their peers, hear about the company’s vision and discuss the evolution of DevOps. Joining the Plutora team for the event will be RAD Motorsport driver, Richard Crisp and team owner, Andrew Crisp, who will share insight into the exciting new partnership. Plutora and RAD Motorsport will also speak about the similar challenges they experience when both managing a DevOps environment and a race car team to ensure the most efficient outcomes while guaranteeing quality.

“When we began discussions with RAD Motorsport about sponsoring the team, it quickly became obvious that although in different fields, both organizations are striving to achieve speed, efficiency and quality,” said Bob Davis, CMO of Plutora. “In the worlds of racing and DevOps, the continuous cycle of racing and development requires visibility and understanding to gain a competitive advantage. At Plutora, we manage every part of the release cycle just like a race team manages the car from garage to track, during the race, and from one event to the next. We look forward to learning from and working with another team that succeeds by being the fastest and most efficient, while still being able to attend to the smallest details. All things we strive for and take seriously at Plutora.”

UK Customer Summit
The UK Customer Summit event will provide an opportunity to meet with Plutora executives for a day of DevOps talks, discussions and networking. The goal is to learn from peers about what is and isn’t not working in their enterprise IT organizations, and how to use Plutora solutions to help deliver digital transformation goals.

“We love these opportunities to speak directly to our customers and gain a deeper understanding of the obstacles they face,” said Dalibor Siroky, CEO of Plutora. “It’s a chance for us to ask questions about what’s ahead and think about how we can help them best prepare for the future. Our community is strong and the feedback we get from it keeps us building the products that they need.”

Plutora Sponsorship of RAD Motorsport
Plutora will be the main sponsor of the #56 car during the 2018 Monoposto Championship, beginning with the first race at the Donington National Grand Prix. RAD Motorsport is fortunate to have a very talented young driver for the team, Richard Crisp. Crisp has had a successful career in karting and rallying (driving a Ford Puma 1.4 rally car), at the BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship and a debut season in Monoposto Formula Renault 2.0 in 2017.

"We are honoured to have Plutora on board, and excited they picked Team RAD to partner with for the 2018 racing season,” said team owner, Andrew Crisp “It's always great to bring a new company onto the circuit, especially one that understands the challenges of managing complex environments and the expertise it takes to do it efficiently – which is key when every second counts on the race track. It also means a lot at RAD Motorsport to have an environmentally friendly, green sponsor such as Plutora."

The UK Customer Summit is an opportunity to get the first look at renderings of the Plutora Team RAD Motorsports car and hear from both teams about the new sponsorship.
