Name: Keith Johnson
Title/Team: Chief Technology Officer
How long have you been with cBEYONData? 7.5 Years
What is your favorite part about working at cBEYONData? People and challenges
How long have you worked in the business intelligence industry? 23 years
What was your first job title in the industry? Consultant
What is the most interesting project that you have worked on? It’s tough to narrow just one, each project brings it’s own unique interest & challenge for me. One of the most challenging projects has been working for a major educational institution in Boston migrating their Oracle warehouse to SAP HANA. Over 2,000 tables, 20yrs of perl, ABAP & SQL script to “translate” to a near-real-time in-memory warehouse.
What does cBEYONData offer that our competitors do not (or what makes cBEYONData unique)? Hands down it’s the people that set us apart from our competitors.
Where do you think this industry is going in the near and far future and how is cBEYONData leading that charge? The big push currently has been to the cloud, I believe this will continue for customers to architect BI “mash-ups” extending the existing software solutions on the market today.
What do you like to do in your “off work” time? Working around the yard, a different kind of challenge!
Do you have family/pets? We call him “Pooh Bear”.
