Speaker

Dmitry Shapiro
Veoh Networks

Dmitry Shapiro is a world-recognized thought leader and visionary in electronic communications, peer-to-peer networking, online community, and computer security. He is a frequent speaker at major technology and business events, and is widely quoted in the press, including InfoWorld, PCWorld, Computer World, eWeek, Internet World, and other publications.

Prior to founding Veoh Networks in 2004, Shapiro founded Akonix Systems, Inc. Under his vision and leadership, Akonix Systems pioneered the technologies that are now standard corporate requirements for IM and P2P management. With over one million enterprise seats deployed, Akonix's P2P management solution is the world's corporate standard in P2P security. Akonix's products are deployed at media companies such as MTV, Fox News, 20th Century Fox, Viacom, and Disney, as well as hundreds of other recognizable brand names across all major vertical markets.

Prior to founding Akonix, Shapiro led technology development for CollegeClub.com, at that time the world's largest community of college students, which provided innovative real-time communications to its community of over four million users. CollegeClub.com was a recognized pioneer in integrating presence, Instant Messaging, and other collaborative technologies into a comprehensive communications infrastructure. His visionary work on presence integration into web infrastructures has been the basis for the "Who's Online" functions now implemented across major industries, including e-commerce, call centers, online personals, and others.

Before CollegeClub.com, Shapiro led the internet technology group at Fujitsu Business Communication Systems. Prior to that, Shapiro was a key player in Fujitsu's systems engineering team where he helped lead Fujitsu's entry into the Computer Telephony Integration space.

Shapiro holds a B.S. in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. In his spare time, he is a hobbyist videographer, activist, and philanthropist.
