Dimension X Adds Technology Industry Veteran Eric Denna to Advisory Board

Eric Denna, Dimension X advisor and investorSalt Lake City, Utah: Dimension X, Inc. (DimX), a Metaverse company developing a platform that radically simplifies the creation of immersive experiences, today announced the addition of Eric Denna to the company’s advisory board.  

Denna brings nearly four decades of experience leading I.T., sales, operations, and professional services for organizations in multiple industries, ranging from technology startups to major university systems. His storied career includes serving as Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the University of Maryland, the University of Utah, Brigham Young University, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. An angel investor and advisor to over a dozen startups, Denna sits on the board of directors for several standout companies including Health Catalyst, OC Tanner, Lucid, and Workday. 

In addition, Denna was a member of the Education CIO Advisory Board for Apple Founder Steve Jobs helping his leadership team on a number of education initiatives.

“The wealth of wisdom and business acumen that Eric brings to DimX is unprecedented,” said Chris Keller, DimX COO and President. “We are thrilled that Eric has chosen to share his deep insight and groundbreaking ideas with us as we continue to develop and commercialize the software platform that will dramatically simplify the workflow for Metaverse creators who build immersive experiences.”

With a leadership career that has spanned nearly 40 years, from the inception of the internet, Denna sees great potential in the Metaverse to improve training, educating, marketing, gaming, and entertainment. 

“I’ve seen immersive technology mature dramatically over the last 20 years to the significant inflection point we are at today,” said Eric Denna, “We are on the front edge of the next wave of value creation, but one gigantic problem persists. It is still too difficult, expensive, and time consuming for creators to build meaningful immersive experiences. DimX is solving that problem and their architecture includes some killer ideas to enable better code reuse, interoperability, and a focus on nonlinear storytelling.”

The current market includes some 9.5 million developers, but the potential exists to grow that several times over using the DimX platform. 

Part of Denna’s role will be to advise DimX on its platform architecture as well as its training processes, including the Metaverse Creators Summit, a one-of-a-kind virtual learning event on November 16th, 2022. Registration is open at https://mcsummit.dev

Eric Denna holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from BYU, a master’s degree in information systems from BYU, and a doctorate in information systems from Michigan State University, where he was the Coopers & Lybrand Doctoral Scholar.
