November 13, 2014
FAIRFAX, Va.--DataRPM, the award-winning provider of Smart Machine Analytics for Big Data, announces that renowned Big Data expert, author and 30-year industry veteran, Bill Schmarzo, has joined its advisory board.

“The industry is desperate for tools that help accelerate the data science discovery and analytic model development process, and DataRPM provides the first industry product that addresses the gap in helping BI-centric organizations transition to data science,” said Bill Schmarzo. “DataRPM’s ‘smart insights’ jump starts the data science model development process by identifying and proposing predictive variables that should be tested, and its automated ‘smart data modeling’ is key to helping business analysts shift from traditional ‘schema-on-load’ to data science ‘schema-on-query’ capabilities.”

Mr. Schmarzo is the author of “Big Data: Understanding How Data Powers Big Business” and is the Chief Technology Officer, Enterprise Information Management & Analytics, at EMC Global Services. As part of his CTO charter, Mr. Schmarzo is responsible for working with organizations to help them identify where and how to start their Big Data journeys.

Previously, Mr. Schmarzo was the vice president of Analytics at Yahoo, where he was responsible for the development of Yahoo’s Advertiser and Website analytics products, including the delivery of “actionable insights” through a holistic user experience. Before that, he oversaw the Analytic Applications business unit at Business Objects, including the development, marketing and sales of their industry-defining analytic applications.

“We are truly honored to add a preeminent Big Data expert of Bill’s stature to our advisory board,” said Sundeep Sanghavi, co-founder and CEO of DataRPM. “Bill’s three decades of Big Data experience and deep industry knowledge will be a tremendous asset for our company and an enormous boon for our customers.”
