Alex Hern is a business mogul who had had a successful career in the ICT sector for over 25 years. He began his career by working with technology companies on their incubation stage. Hern later co-founded a search technology company, Inktomi Goldman Sachs-led IPO (INKT) whereby he served as the director. The company served different giant tech companies such as Yahoo, MSN, and AOL. Other companies he co-founded include Yesmail Alex Brown led IPO (YESM), Military Commercial Technologies, ArcSight (ARST) and CloudShield whereby he also served as the director. He is also the founder of NewHomes.com and Triton Network Systems (TNSI) whereby he served in the board of directors.
Through his work, he has gained abundant experience in the ICT industry and is currently serving Tsunami XR as the CEO, a company he founded in the year 2014. Tsunami XR focusses on developing new communications software to redesign how companies exchange ideas, collaborate, train, execute tasks and grow. During an interview with IdeaMensch, he said that the idea to form Tsunami XR came to his mind when people started moving from CPU driven computers to GPU driven ones. He realized that people would need new software platforms for compatibility during the transitioned era. Alex Hern believes that using enough time, roughly 4 to 5 hours concentrating on one thing rather than multitasking can lead to great success. He also said that he brings his ideas into reality by working more at night than during the day because when everyone else is sleeping, there is less distraction and can easily build an amazing innovation.
The main things that excite Alex Hern are artificial intelligence, machine learning, and cloud computing being the concepts that define his daily work. When asked if he has anything that makes him more productive, he said that focus is the main mechanism because when one is focused on goals, everything goes as planned despite how difficult it is to remain continuously focused. According to Alex Hern, waking up early every day is a very important habit that everyone should stick to, no matter what. One main challenge Alex faced in his career is experiencing unexpected changes in the macroeconomic environment leading to adverse effects on the business. However, he says that being prepared for the worst can help an entrepreneur to deal with any challenge as their come.
