HOUSTON – (August 21, 2006) – Kinesix Software, a producer of graphical-user-interfaces for command-and-control applications, has named Thomas Murphy as its vice president of technical services.
Murphy, a seasoned technology executive with more than 18 years of experience, is expected to take on a strong leadership role at Kinesix, helping it expand into new geographic markets and industry sectors.
“It’s been a very exciting year at Kinesix – one marked by the debut of our most sophisticated product yet, as well as a slew of customer wins in North America, Europe and China,” says Russ Jamerson, CEO of Kinesix. “With Thomas on our team, we will be able to continue this momentum, while also developing increasingly sophisticated offerings capable of meeting the market’s changing needs.”
Before joining Kinesix, Murphy served as vice president of enterprise operations at Houston-based NetVersant Solutions. There, he led a wide range of technology deployments. These include work with enterprise applications, integrated-operations centers, mobile voice-and-data networks, and project-management systems.
Prior to his tenure at NetVersant, Murphy held leadership and technical positions at top-tier technology companies, including work as a consultant developing targeting systems for Texas Instruments and a stint as an avionics-software developer for Lockheed Martin’s F-16 fighter-jet program. Murphy has also worked as a developer of oil-and-gas SCADA systems for a Foxboro subsidiary.
He holds a bachelors degree in computing science and a minor in mathematics from Texas A&M University.
About Kinesix Software
Kinesix Software is the developer of Sammi, an enterprise and control-room graphics tool used by more than 20,000 mission-command and process-control workers. The Sammi product, which was first launched in 1990, allows users to build custom graphical displays that animate and manage massive volumes of streaming data across dozens – or even hundreds – of workstations.
With Sammi, users see full-color dashboards, instead of rudimentary numeric readings or basic, conventional GUIs. While Sammi is often categorized as a graphics product, its real value lies in its proven ability to display live data across a network of command and control systems. Sammi is currently available for Unix, Microsoft NT/2000/XP and Linux platforms. Kinesix offers Sammi for a variety of platforms, including Unix, Microsoft NT/2000/XP and Linux. In addition, Kinesix recently released KX EDGE, its next-generation human-machine interface, based on Microsoft’s .Net platform. Kinesix is based in Houston, Texas.
