Former American Express Big Data Evangelist Joins the Ranks of the Enterprise Software Company Behind Cascading™ and Driven
SAN FRANCISCO – April 2, 2014 – Concurrent, Inc., the enterprise Big Data application platform company, today announced the appointment of Supreet Oberoi as vice president of field engineering. In response to increasing customer and user demand, as well as massive growth in enterprise data applications, Oberoi will lead the company’s efforts to deploy and operationalize its commercial offerings, which include products, support and professional services.
Oberoi brings 20 years of enterprise software experience, joining Concurrent from American Express where he served as Big Data technical evangelist and director of Big Data technical delivery. Combining business acumen with technical insight, he developed reference architectures and new enterprise-level capabilities, such as operational visibility, governance, compliance, data management and quality with the Apache Hadoop™ stack using many Big Data technologies. In addition, he developed groundbreaking capabilities in fraud, risk and marketing on the Big Data platform. Prior to American Express, Oberoi held several vice president, director and senior-level positions at Agile Software, oneREV, Oracle and RTI.
Oberoi joins a seasoned leadership team that includes Concurrent CEO Gary Nakamura, and Chris Wensel, founder, CTO and API author of Cascading™, the most widely used and deployed technology for Big Data applications with more than 150,000 downloads a month. Oberoi’s appointment follows the company’s recent announcement of Driven, the industry’s first application performance management product for Big Data applications – purpose-built to address the pain points of enterprise application development and application performance management on Hadoop.
“As we accelerate growth and operationalize our commercial product, Driven, it becomes critical to have the market expertise, wisdom and counsel of a veteran leadership team. Supreet’s extensive Big Data experience and first-hand knowledge from the trenches of several high-growth technology companies makes him a key addition to our leadership team at this point in the company’s evolution.”
-Gary Nakamura, CEO, Concurrent, Inc.
“Hadoop continues to be the fabric of choice for tackling Big Data, yet the need for it to easily integrate with existing systems creates a barrier to mass adoption. Further, Hadoop traditionally represents a black box, where it’s difficult to understand exactly what’s going on. I look forward to joining Concurrent at such a pivotal time for the company as we continue to develop products and solutions, such as Cascading and Driven, that provide visibility and manageability to the Hadoop black box.”
