Cloud communications is certainly seeing its time in the sun, with creativity serving as the space’s only limit. Enabling this era or feature-rich, future forward communication solutions are APIs, serving as the building blocks of integrating the digital age. With great power, comes great responsibility – or at least that’s what Uncle Ben says.

Vonage (News - Alert) announced Omar Javaid is the new President of the Vonage API Platform Group. As President, Javaid is tasked with crafting content portfolio development strategy, offering a roadmap for the future of the firm.

"I am thrilled to congratulate Omar and to recognize the significant impact he has made on the Company's success in driving the growth of our API Platform strategy," said Alan Masarek, Vonage CEO. "Omar has been a key driver in bringing our product portfolio to where it is today and we will continue to rely on his guidance as we accelerate the evolution and growth of our product roadmap." 

Also receiving a boost is the newly appointed Chief Product Officer, Jay Patel who was formerly Senior Vice President of Portfolio Panning and Strategy for the firm. Patel will report to Javaid, and aims to lean into 20 years of industry experience of leading top design teams. The portfolio appears in very good hands for the foreseeable future.

"Jay's vast experience in product development and cloud services, as well as his proven leadership skills, will help Vonage to drive further innovation in our product development timeline," said Mr. Javaid. "Since joining Vonage, Jay has made a tremendous impact on our product strategy, helping us to become a global leader in business cloud communications. I look forward to his continued success in leading our product teams."

APIs are allowing a new day, and for Vonage who owns the entire communications stack, is delivering a robust blend of architecture, performance and features.
