Big Data thought leader with deep Enterprise Information Management (News - Alert)

executives from Fortune 1000 organizations to find new and innovative
ways to extend the value of their data assets.
Prior to joining NewVantage, Thakuria was the technology leader for the
Financial Services CIO Advisory Practice at Price Waterhouse Coopers
(PwC), where he led EIM and Big Data initiatives. Before that, he served
as technology leader and partner in the Financial Services practice at

"Our clients are increasingly looking for deeper levels of technical
expertise in data management, analytics and EIM t turn their data
assets into business value. The breakthrough Big Data methodologies,
architectures and design patterns that we have developed deliver
immediate results and create a lasting foundation," said Paul Barth,

Data Hub solution allows new enterprise data sources to be connected,
cleansed, and delivered in weeks, rather than the months which is
typical with complex data warehouses. This is critical to finance, risk

conditions and regulatory requirements."

challenges," said Thakuria. "By taking a thoughtful, practical and
staged approach to Big Data strategy and execution as part of a holistic

are used to. The importance of Big Data and deep analytics is driven by
a perfect storm of technologies, business issues and economics. Firms
need to include this as part of their technology portfolio to stay
