You’re Invited to an Informative Virtual Meeting  (See Registration Link Below)

Topic: The Challenges of Analyzing Large Datasets

The world continues to create a huge and increasing amount of digital information – and the value of analyzing this incomprehensibly large volume of data is also accelerating.  What are the largest datasets on the planet?  How can they be analyzed?  And what are the technical challenges to analyzing data at this massive and growing scale?  These are some of the questions that Chris Gladwin, CEO and Co-Founder of Ocient, will explore.  Ocient provides the technology that organizations around the world use for complex analysis of the very, very largest datasets.

Speaker:  Chris Gladwin, CEO, Ocient


In 2004, Chris founded Cleversafe which became the largest and most strategic object storage vendor in the world (according to IDC.)  He raised $100M and then led the company to over a $1.3B exit in 2015 when IBM acquired the company.  The technology Cleversafe created is used by most people in the U.S. every day and generated over 1,000 patents granted or filed, creating one of the ten most powerful patent portfolios in the world.  Prior to Cleversafe, Chris was the Founding CEO of startups MusicNow and Cruise Technologies and led product strategy for Zenith Data Systems.  He started his career at Lockheed Martin as a database programmer and holds an engineering degree from MIT.  Chris is now the CEO and Co-Founder of Ocient whose mission is to successfully provide the leading platform the world uses to analyze its largest datasets.
