Paxata Expands Advisory Board as it Continues to Accelerate Adoption of Adaptive Data Preparation for Business Analytics

Paxata, the first Adaptive Data Preparation™ platform that rapidly connects, explores, transforms and combines data, today announced the expansion of its Advisory Board, with the addition of Kenny Mendes, an innovator in quantitative talent acquisition at Box; Sanjay Poonen, General Manager of End-User Computing at VMware; and Ameet Patel, a noted advisor and investor in early stage and high growth technology companies looking to disrupt and revolutionize enterprise computing.

This announcement follows Paxata’s recent news of partnerships and leadership appointments that continue to set the pace for the emerging Adaptive Data Preparation category. The expanded Advisory Board will work closely with Paxata’s team to ensure that Paxata’s products and strategy continue to address the evolving needs of business analysts at all technical levels.

“As we rapidly grow, it is extremely critical that we continue to attract, measure, and develop world class talent, stay ahead of trends in enterprise analytics, and gain a deeper understanding of customer analytical challenges across various industries,” explained Prakash Nanduri, Co-founder and CEO of Paxata. “We are thrilled that Kenny, Sanjay, and Ameet have joined the existing members of our advisory board. We are truly privileged to work with such a team of luminaries who bring a depth of understanding and share our passion for exponentially improving timely and accurate business decisions through our ground breaking adaptive data preparation platform.”

“Removing the barriers business analysts face in data preparation will serve to unleash significant business value,” said Sanjay Poonen, General Manager of End-User Computing at VMware. “Our role on the advisory board is to provide external perspective that will help Paxata anticipate and solve market and customer challenges through innovative business models, partnerships and product strategy.”

Sanjay Poonen has more than 20 years of experience in the technology industry and has held a variety of management roles in engineering, products, sales, marketing and business development. Before joining VMware, Poonen was president and corporate officer of Platform Solutions and the Mobile Division at SAP AG.

Kenny Mendes leads recruiting at Box, helping the disruptive brand grow its talent acquisition efforts to support explosive business growth. Mendes has pioneered the way Box uses analytics and big data to identify, attract and retain world-class talent that has helped Box outpace its competition.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
