Steen joined Nutanix attracted by the compelling business proposition - which is focused on delivering Financial Outcomes for our customers including lowering Cost of IT by up to 60% and Business Outcomes including improvements of service. A key part of the approach is to apply metrics to measure success in advance of the investment and to measure post investment success.
Steen has been instrumental in developing the Cloud Economist role within Nutanix. The role was created to respond to a need from customers to help them understand the complexity of choosing a Cloud Platform and to determine which approach would deliver the most value.

Steen works closely with customers to help them to calculate financial metrics to support investment decisions and to present these in the language of business – finance terms.
