Qognify Names Yaniv Toplian New Vice President of R&D
Yaniv, who joined Qognify in 2019 as R&D director, will lead a global team that includes product management as well as software developers, DevOps and QA engineers.
PEARL RIVER, N.Y. — Qognify, a technology solution provider for physical security and enterprise incident management, has named Yaniv Toplian as its new vice president of research and development.
As part of Qognify’s senior leadership team, Yaniv has a remit to define and execute its R&D strategy to design and develop solutions that mitigate risks, increase security and optimize operations, through world-class research and innovation, according to the company.
Based in Qognify’s Ra’anana, Israel office, Toplian leads a global team that includes product management as well as software developers, DevOps and QA engineers.
“Our highly capable and committed team enables us to perform the full development life cycle, starting from the requirements definition through implementation, deployment and support for Qognify customers and partners throughout the world. We rely on state-of-the-art agile development methodologies that enable improved transparency and better quality of the results,” Toplian explains.
The company cites the launch of Qognify VMS as an example of its R&D capability. The next-generation video management system (VMS) leverages advanced integration capabilities and enterprise-class functionality, combined with a low total cost of ownership, to maximize the outcomes of a physical security strategy, according to the company.
Toplian adds, “With Qognify VMS and Qognify EIM we can offer a strong combined portfolio for organizations that place a premium on security and want to manage the entire incident lifecycle in their control rooms.”
Qognify says Toplian brings over 20 years R&D experience and a proven record of delivering enterprise software to his new role. He began his career as a software engineer in the telecom and IT software industry and has held leading engineering positions in companies such as Comverse, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and NICE. He joined Qognify in 2019 as R&D Director.
“Research and development has been the cornerstone of Qognify’s past achievements and continues to be instrumental for the future success of the company, our customers and partners. We are committed to a continual program of innovation and improvement and Yaniv has the knowledge of the sector, the technical ability and management skills to lead our R&D group,” says Qognify CEO Steve Shine.
