Bangalore, 3 February 4, 2014: Leading US-based IT services company, with a large presence in India – Ness Software Engineering Services (SES) --has announced the appointment of Big Data expert, Moshe Kranc, as Chief Data Officer (CDO).
Moshe comes to Ness after 25 years in management roles and another 10 years working in high-tech. Most recently, he led the Big Data Centre of Excellence in Tel Aviv for Barclays Bank. Moshe was also part of the Emmy award-winning team that designed the scrambling system for DIRECTV.
Says Ness CEO Paul Lombardo: “Moshe has proven his expertise in the technology sector and his business acumen in management roles. His excellent experience in Big Data allows us to offer best-of-breed, high impact data analytics solutions to our customers. Moshe’s leadership will help us to drive business growth, as our customers seek to leverage sophisticated Big Data and analytics capabilities to create revenue opportunities from digital services and to meet the needs of digitally-savvy consumers.”
Adds Moshe Kranc: “I am thrilled to be named CDO at Ness SES at this inflection point, as our customers encounter Big Data opportunities and challenges. Big Data is now often called an ‘insurmountable opportunity’, yet businesses are still finding their feet because the data that needs to be analysed, grows every day. On top of that, the technologies to handle this are new and unfortunately, full of ‘sharp edges’. I look forward to leveraging my knowledge and experience in this space so that we, as a business, can tailor Big Data solutions to our customers’ needs whilst enhancing our core capabilities.”
Big Data and analytics are core strengths for Ness SES. The company's India operations account for about a third of its 7000 employee strength.
