Alexander Stojanovic Joins DataRPM Advisory Board Aug 2014

August 06, 2014 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time
FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DataRPM, the world's leading platform for instant big data discovery, today announced that preeminent Big Data expert and 20-year industry veteran, Alexander Stojanovic, has joined its advisory board.

“DataRPM has a clear and disruptive view of Big Data discovery – far larger than traditional information retrieval and indexing solutions aimed at enterprises,” said Alexander Stojanovic. “The company is led by a passionate, articulate and tech-savvy team of founders along with a top-notch cadre of business and technical professionals who truly understand how to distill complex technologies – natural language processing, machine learning and large-scale computing – into a compelling form that businesses can harness immediately.

“This is a market which will explode over the next five years as the interface gap between how business people need to find, share and leverage knowledge at scale moves up the stack from APIs and programming frameworks to the sorts of natural language interfaces and models that DataRPM offers. I am proud to join as an advisor and provide my expertise to the DataRPM leadership team.”

Mr. Stojanovic is a Vice President at Oracle, where he founded, designed and is driving the business strategy for the new Oracle Data Enrichment Cloud Service. Prior to Oracle, he was General Partner and Chief Scientist at Frost Data Capital, where he focused on cloud analytics platforms, semantic search and exploratory data analysis platforms. During his time with Frost Data Capital, Mr. Stojanovic co-founded Ubix Labs, a scalable real-time analytics cloud startup, and was involved from inception with the business and technical evolution of MAANA, a Hadoop-based semantic indexing and search startup.

Previously, he was a General Manager and Senior Partner at Microsoft, where he founded the HDInsight team to deliver Apache Hadoop on Azure and Windows platforms, and drove Big Data strategy to focus on Open Source Software Engagement. Before Microsoft, Mr. Stojanovic was Director of Engineering at BEA Systems, where he was co-architect of the market-leading Weblogic Integration 8.1 product.

“We are honored to add a Big Data pioneer and technology expert of Alexander’s caliber to our advisory board,” said Sundeep Sanghavi, co-founder and CEO of DataRPM. “Having someone of Alexander’s stature lending his proficiency to DataRPM’s disruptive instant Big Data discovery solution will be an invaluable asset for our company and a tremendous boon for our customers.”
