Innovation is the key to survival in a digital age. My goal is to help others leverage technology to do great things, build a more sustainable future and find their inspiration.

About Bill Kleyman

Hey Everyone! I’m Bill, and I feel like I’m the luckiest person in the world. I have a wonderful family, great friends, and I get to do amazing (techie) things every single day. I’ve worked with data center design, DevOps, cloud, artificial intelligence, cognitive systems, and pretty much all things connected. And, as an active member in the technology community, I was lucky enough to be ranked #16 globally in the Onalytica study that reviewed the top 100 most influential individuals in the cloud landscape and #4 in another Onalytica study, which examined the industry’s top Data Security Experts.

After 15 years in the technology space, I’ve had the chance to see quite a few advancements. Today, as Executive Vice President of Digital Solutions at one of the industry’s most innovative technology companies, I work with leaders in digital infrastructure to help build a more sustainable and inclusive future and support an ever-connected digital society. Outside of my day job, I’m a contributing editor to some leading publications, including Data Center Frontier, Data Center Knowledge, ITPro Today, and InformationWeek. I also get the chance to speak at leading conferences like DCD, AFCOM Data Center World, Interop, Google Partner Days, AFCOM Leaders Labs, Informa, HIMSS, and others.

Finally, I also work with an extraordinary organization called Infrastructure Masons. At iMasons, I sit on the Advisory Council and am the Chairperson for the Millennial and Gen Z resource group. Our efforts result in thousands of dollars of scholarships, broad diversity, inclusion, equality programs, and hours of mentorship at colleges and universities. It’s honestly one of the most rewarding and memorable programs that I work with.

My first interaction with Bill was at a press interview where he was writing an article about my company. From the moment he first spoke I realized that he is one of those people that deeply understand the technology and its impacts. The very first time I heard Bill give a keynote in front of 2000 people, I realized that he is just one of those folks that understand the importance of digital infrastructure, and how it impacts our society. The fact that he is now a great father and a good friend, I realized that he is just one of those folks that gets it.

Xtelligent Healthcare Media prides itself on producing content in-house, but specific topics require technical knowledge that exceeds even our most studied journalists. Based on his experience working in the field, Bill has written with authority about the intersection of health IT and security for the readers of HealthITSecurity.com. His conversational writing style makes complex topics understandable to security and privacy professionals across the healthcare industry.

It’s been a pleasure getting to know and work with Bill. I had sat in on some of Bill’s keynote addresses and seminars at AFCOM events in the past, and so when the ASHRAE TC 9.9 team needed someone to write a foreword for a new DCIM Datacom book, I immediately thought of him. Bill’s willingness to volunteer his time and his professionalism far exceeded our expectations. It’s clear Bill is not only a forward thinker in the industry but a key player and advocate for bridging divides within the industry.
