AtScale Appoints Jit Saxena as Member of the Board
SAN MATEO, Calif., Aug. 9, 2018 — AtScale, an industry leader in data federation and cloud transformation, has announced the appointment of Jit Saxena as Member of the Board.
Saxena is a legend in the data and analytics industry. As the founder, chairman, and CEO of Netezza, Jit led the company’s initial public offering and acquisition by IBM for $1.7 billion. Saxena also founded and led Applix, a leader in analytical CRM software, which he took public in 1994. Today, Jit advises a finite number of technology startups, including DataRobot, a leader in automated machine learning, where he shares board membership with Chris Lynch, AtScale’s CEO.
“Jit’s an incredible leader who knows what it takes for companies like AtScale to create and ultimately dominate enterprise markets. He’s taken two companies public and is a highly sought after advisor. The timing is perfect for us to leverage his experience as AtScale is on a meteoric trajectory,” said Chris Lynch, CEO at AtScale.
Lynch, who recently joined AtScale as its new CEO, has focused the company on cloud, hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud enablement, disrupting a traditionally on-premise monolithic data analytics industry.
“My entire career has been focused on enabling businesses to monetize information. When Chris joined AtScale, the opportunity to collaborate on one of the largest data management and analytics opportunities of the last 20 years was irresistible. AtScale’s ability to federate disparate data silos and seamlessly enable cloud transformation provides organizations with unparalleled freedom and flexibility to choose technology offerings and cloud providers as they continue to evolve,” said Saxena.
