If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

I want to change the world.

Full bio

Harnessing big data is as much about deep server technology as it is a battle to reign in complexity. The status quo is untenable -- brittle infrastructure, impenetrable tools, and lots of user pain. Ben founded Platfora to change this and unify disruptive server technology with superb user experience into a big data platform, for business users, that just works. He is an industry veteran and big data thought leader and was head of products at Greenplum through the EMC acquisition.
