DataRPM Adds “Visioneering” Leader Dipak Patel to Advisory Board


DataRPM Adds “Visioneering” Leader Dipak Patel to Advisory Board Oct 2014

Innovative and high-energy executive known for empowering boundary-breaking companies and helping them become industry leaders joins board of advisors for award-winning provider of smart machine analytics

October 23, 2014
FAIRFAX, Va.- DataRPM, the award-winning provider of Smart Machine Analytics for Big Data, announces that “Visioneering” leader and veteran entrepreneur, Dipak M. Patel, has joined its advisory board.

Renowned as an innovative and high-energy executive who empowers boundary-breaking companies by helping them become industry leaders, Patel joins an illustrious board of advisors which already includes numerous big data experts and Forbes’ #1 Most Influential Woman in Social Selling, Jill Rowley.

“As Founder and Managing Director of BIG Visioneering Inc., Dipak brings DataRPM more than just experience and industry know-how – he brings a forward-thinking approach that can motivate and harness the creative energy of any team and company to help them reach their true potential,” says Sundeep Sanghavi, co-founder and CEO of DataRPM.

Now, with his “Go BIG or Go Home!” motto and expertise in new and established enterprises, Dipak looks towards DataRPM — a company already providing an unparalleled smart machine analytics solution for big data — to not only continue being an innovator, but to constantly search for the next breakthrough.

“DataRPM’s smart machine analytics solution pushes the boundaries by fully automating the process and providing a simple, natural language interface that allows anyone in an enterprise to draw meaningful conclusions from their big data quickly,” explains Patel. “They are participating in a form of industry disruption that larger enterprises fear and therefore avoid, leaving others lagging in the innovative sphere of their industry.”

“The company provides a transformational effect on the systems and culture of an organization that we have never before seen inside of large enterprises. DataRPM is enterprise disruption at its finest,” he adds.

According to Patel, DataRPM’s participation within this “disruption” has provided its clients with an unprecedented amount of control and understanding over their own big data sets and projects.

“It is fundamental for a company to continuously look through an alternate lens to imagine the future and set a trend, expand an industry horizon, and establish themselves as leaders of it,” says Patel. “As part of the DataRPM team, I look forward to fostering a team of innovators and forward-thinkers that can progress this global disruption and set never–before seen trends,” he says.

A former Software Engineer at Lockheed Martin, Patel is the current VP of Global Sales & Business Development at G-Technology, a Division of HGST, Inc., and the Founder & Managing Director of BIG Visioneering Inc., a company that looks to activate established companies to challenge the status quo. He is also the Co-Founder of San Francisco-based Zeality Inc. Dipak is widely acknowledged as an expert in the Internet of Things (IoT) through his work with Wearable World, among other endeavors.
