Every year, Scality founders Jerome Lecat and Giorgio Regni unite their staff for an Annual Kickoff. Each year, they ask one question: What if?
What if… we think differently about how data is stored and used in the cloud. The initial open-ended question led to a new way of accessing and managing multiple clouds to become the brainchild of Scality’s award-winning product, Zenko.According to author @SafiBahcall's definition, @Zenko was a Loonshot, a surprising new way of thinking, to help nurture radical breakthroughs.

Safi Bahcall is a physicist, biotech entrepreneur and best selling author of the best selling book, Loonshots.
Loonshots, an instant Wall Street Journal bestseller, has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, the Harvard Business Review, the Washington Post, Forbes, Bloomberg, Newsweek, Nature, and Scientific American. It was selected by Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Pink, Susan Cain, and Adam Grant for the Next Big Idea Club.
In Bahcall’s massively insightful book, he draws on the science of phase transitions, allowing Loonshots to identify small shifts in the structure of technology. The volume explores how teams and organizations can embrace wild new concepts to produce new- and next-generation solutions.
These innovations come when people allow their imagination and creativity to pose new questions. Companies grow when they allow their employees to voice those crazy “what ifs.” Businesses that nurture creativity adapt to new situations better and continue to innovate in an ever changing world.
