XtremeData Hires Former IBM Analytics Leader

Company Prepares for Next Step in Big Data Analytics

SCHAUMBURG, IL--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2012) - XtremeData, the only big data DBMS company enabling on-demand analytics using commodity hardware, has appointed former IBM information management expert, Mike Lamble, as president. In this new role, Lamble will guide acceleration of go-to-market programs for the company's ground-breaking big data analytics technology offerings.

"We have a new leader who very clearly understands the big data market," said Ravi Chandran, XtremeData's co-founder and CTO. "Mike is a veteran in the big data space and brings in-depth experience from Fortune 100 technology companies as well as a successful track record at start-ups. His industry knowledge and shared vision for our business equips Mike to lead XtremeData to the next level."

Most recently Lamble was a practice leader in IBM's analytics business unit. Prior to IBM, he was VP at Greenplum, a division of EMC focusing on big data analytics. Before that he was a managing partner of Knightsbridge Solutions, a consultancy specialized in business intelligence, data warehousing, and data integration and acquired by HP.

"We're focusing on customers who are working with terabytes to petabytes of data and are hitting performance and budget walls with outdated, proprietary hardware solutions," Lamble said. "We're helping them knock down those walls."
