Our Global Leadership Team

In the 90s we evangelized the "promise of the Internet". We said, "everything can now be measured" and that we could do BIG things with that data. But the Cloud had not been invented yet, and only the largest companies could take advantage of data science.

Things have changed. You could say that we've waited 18 years for this moment. The promise of the Internet can now be realized, and we'll help by putting the power of Big Data within everyone's reach.
