NewVantage Partners Appoints Prithwi Thakuria to Partner, Big Data Practice Lead

BOSTON --(Business Wire)--

NewVantage Partners, the premier consultancy focused on guiding business and technology executives in the creation of strategic solutions that harness the power of their data, today announced the appointment of Prithwi Thakuria to Partner and Big Data Practice Lead. An established Big Data thought leader with deep Enterprise Information Management (News - Alert) (EIM) and analytics expertise, Thakuria will work closely with C-Suite 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 EMC (News - Alert) Consulting, where he conceived and led the firm's services in Big Data and Deep Analytics.

Previously, Thakuria was the head of technology for the Financial Services Practice at Patni as well as a vice president in the Office of Architecture at State Street Bank, where he oversaw data and business intelligence architecture initiatives throughout his eight-year tenure there. He also served as a director at Tessera/iXL.

"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, founder and managing partner, NewVantage Partners.

"With Prithwi on board, we are scaling our existing capabilities with new offerings that deliver orders of magnitude benefits to our clients," continued Barth. "For example, our mainframe migration solution reduces cost and accelerates processing by a factor of 10. Similarly, our Big 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 and marketing executives who need to respond to rapidly changing market conditions and regulatory requirements."

"I am excited to join the NewVantage team and eager to help clients find the right Big Data approaches that solve their specific business challenges," said Thakuria. "By taking a thoughtful, practical and staged approach to Big Data strategy and execution as part of a holistic enterprise information ecosystem, firms can realize a lot more than they 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 relevant."
