Infoworks CEO to Deliver Keynote at Evanta CDO Executive Summit
Customer traction, leadership appointments and investment fuel momentum for EDO2 leader
PALO ALTO, Calif. and BOSTON, June 5, 2019 – Infoworks.io, the leader in Enterprise Data Operations and Orchestration (EDO2) systems, announces that CEO Buno Pati will present a keynote address, “Solving for Enterprise Scale Analytics and Agile Data Operations,” at Evanta’s Boston CDO Executive Summit this morning. Pati will discuss key industry trends regarding organizations’ data operations, approaches to achieve optimum use of data, and impact on analytics, which are fundamental to digital transformation initiatives. Traction winning customers, recent key leadership appointments and investment continue to drive significant momentum for the company.
“The breakneck pace of business change and its insatiable appetite for data and analytics to inform decision-making and deliver enhanced customer experiences makes agile use of data an imperative for all organizations,” said Pati. “I’m looking forward to engaging with CIOs, CDOs and other data leaders to discuss our industry’s challenges and ways forward. At Infoworks, our offering is being enthusiastically welcomed with great traction in the market. Our singular focus on Enterprise Data Operations and Orchestration is helping our wide range of customers realize the value of their data to power real business transformation.”
To be competitive in an increasingly digital world, businesses today are challenged to fundamentally redefine their operations and customer experience. Competing and winning requires unleashing the value of data and realizing both scale and agility in analytics – goals, which until recently, have been challenging to achieve due to the prohibitive complexity of big data operations. Leading organizations have recognized the need for an enterprise-wide system to manage, organize, and orchestrate data and data operations to achieve these goals. EDO2 systems, which manage and orchestrate data and analytics pipelines in complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments, are critical to the success of business digital transformation.
Infoworks’ enterprise customers have achieved an unprecedented level of analytics agility, unleashing the power of their data and launching analytics use cases 10X faster with 1/10th the resources.
“Our analytics processes have historically been very manual, and our data has been stored in silos, which made it difficult to curate and use. Legacy data integration point products did not address our requirement for a holistic data operations and management solution,” said Bawa Jaggi, Senior Vice President of Advanced Analytics at Diamond Resorts. “Infoworks is the first company to deliver on our vision of an EDO2 system that gives us the agility and flexibility we need to democratize data for all enterprise decision makers, further differentiate in the market, and accelerate growth in our business.”
