Zettics élargit son équipe de direction avec l'arrivée de spécialistes chevronnés des grandes bases de données et des télécommunications

Zettics, Inc., le leader des analyses de données mobiles en masse, a annoncé aujourd'hui l'arrivée de trois spécialistes chevronnés du secteur au sein de son équipe dirigeante : John Gillespie, précédemment chez IBM et Netezza, sera le directeur général adjoint (SVP) des ventes internationales et du développement commercial ; Mike Crane, précédemment chez Guavus et Grid Net, sera le vice-président (VP) du développement commercial ; et John Tremblay, précédemment chez NxStage et Verizon Wireless, sera le vice-président (VP) de la gestion des produits.

Avec John Gillespie, Zettics bénéficie de plus de 25 ans d'expérience dans la livraison de solutions complexes destinées aux secteurs des télécommunications et de l'entreprise, dont plus de six années dans le domaine des analyses de données en masse. Il travaillait avant de rejoindre Zettics pour IBM, où il occupait le poste de directeur général international du secteur des communications (télécommunications, médias, énergie et services d'intérêt public) de l'organisation Big Data basée à Shanghai en Chine. M. Gillespie avait passé auparavant de nombreuses années chez Netezza en tant que directeur général (GM) de leur division Télécommunications avant leur acquisition par IBM. Avec Mike Crane, Zettics bénéficie de plus de 20 années d'expérience dans les domaines des bases de données en masse, des télécommunications et du développement commercial à l'international. Mike était jusque-là vice-président (VP) du développement commercial chez Guavus, vice-président (VP) des ventes et du développement commercial chez Grid Net et occupait des postes de direction chez Nielsen Mobile, Vodafone et PriceWaterhouse Coopers. John Tremblay apporte plus de 20 ans d'expérience dans l'innovation des produits et le marketing sur la chaîne de valeurs mobiles. Avant de rejoindre Zettics, John dirigeait une solution de santé mobile chez NxStage Medical, il a aidé à définir la réalisation des nouveaux services 4G chez Verizon Wireless, et a cofondé l'entreprise émergente des médias mobiles, Azuki Systems, où il occupait le poste de vice-président (VP) chargé de la gestion des produits et du marketing.

« Les trois dirigeants apportent leur savoir-faire considérable pour collaborer avec les opérateurs sur de grandes solutions d'analyses des données en masse ; leur arrivée est un grand atout pour l'équipe de direction de Zettics. Nos clients opérateurs actuels ont connu d'importantes améliorations dans leurs activités en utilisant nos solutions, et nous envisageons d'accélérer ce domaine d'activité tandis que nous aidons nos clients opérateurs à identifier encore d'autres opportunités de monétisation des données. Nous accélérerons en outre la croissance de l'entreprise en élargissant notre activité sur les marchés internationaux », a déclaré Sterling Wilson, Président et PDG de Zettics. De l'avis de John Gillespie, le nouveau directeur général adjoint (SVP) des ventes internationales et du développement commercial : « L'essor spectaculaire des services de données mobiles offre une opportunité exceptionnelle aux opérateurs mobiles de monétiser ces données : à travers l'accroissement des recettes, la réduction des dépenses et/ou une satisfaction accrue des clients. Zettics est le chef de file reconnu dans ce domaine, et je suis très heureux de rejoindre l'entreprise pour aider les opérateurs internationaux à optimiser la valeur de leurs données abonnés. »

Les trois dirigeants aideront Zettics pendant cette période de rapide évolution de l'entreprise. La toute dernière version de la plate-forme, 7.0, a été déployée chez les opérateurs internationaux et traite des trillions de transactions par mois. La plate-forme Dynamic Learning Platform™ de Zettics tire des enseignements continus des données qu'elle reçoit, et elle est utilisée à la fois pour l'analyse des activités actuelles et la prévision des actions futures. Les opérateurs utilisent la technologie Zettics pour livrer des résultats commerciaux significatifs aux nombreux services au sein de leurs organisations, y compris le marketing, le service clientèle, les réseaux et les services informatiques (IT).

Zettics, Inc. (www.zettics.com) a été fondée en 2009 par les vétérans du secteur sans fil Sterling Wilson et Asa Kalavade ( respectivement fondateurs de GroundTruth et Umber). Au vu de l'adoption massive des services de données consommateurs et de l'évolution prévue des technologies des réseaux opérateurs, ils ont compris qu'en répondant aux questions sur le mode de consommation des données, les opérateurs bénéficieraient d'une chance sans précédent d'améliorer leur activité. Zettics fournit aujourd'hui aux opérateurs une solution d'analyse robuste des données en masse pour leur apporter une analyse pragmatique et immédiate de leurs activités données (Internet, application, audio, vidéo, p2p, VoIP, etc.). Cette vision claire et pragmatique permet aux opérateurs de comprendre, pour la première fois, quels modes de consommation sont associés aux services de données, afin qu'ils puissent utiliser ces informations pour mieux servir leurs clients et par conséquent améliorer leur activité. Les opérateurs utilisent déjà les solutions de Zettics pour identifier les usages abusifs du réseau, analyser les tarifs en se basant sur le taux d'utilisation réel, améliorer les offres publicitaires, réduire le taux de désabonnement, améliorer le service clientèle, prévoir la croissance de l'utilisation des services, améliorer sensiblement les données CRM, etc. Zettics est une plate-forme de traitement des données en masse. Les systèmes Zettics traitent déjà des trillions de transactions par mois. Pour garder le contact avec cet écosystème en constante évolution qu'est l'Internet, Zettics a mis au point la Dynamic Learning Platform™ de Zettics ; elle intègre un catalogue de contenu des applications et des sites Internet qui est mis à jour en continu avec ses algorithmes d'apprentissage brevetés. Zettics s'est vu accorder de nombreux brevets (plusieurs sont également en instance) pour ses technologies novatrices.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
