“Many vendors claim to provide no-code automation and AI. Many vendors claim to be enterprise-ready. And many vendors claim to be customer-focused. Ushur is that rare example that delivers on all fronts. It’s an extraordinary company, and I’m excited to help it reach even greater success.” – Shashi Kiran, CMO, Aryaka Networks and former Head of WW Enterprise Marketing, Cisco
