The Promise of Data and Why I Joined Unravel

By: Roman Orosco, VP of WorldWide Sales

This is my first post since landing at Unravel and I couldn’t be more energized about what’s to come. Our industry is being re-architected in new and exciting ways. Many industry observers would say it’s about time! The landscape is littered with unfulfilled promises and unsolved complexity. However, one fact remains, without data and more critically, what that data can tell us, we are flying blind amidst a business climate that has never moved faster and has never faced more uncertainty.

Many data ‘swamps’ have frankly failed to deliver, not because the data was not of value, but rather it has been too complex to wrangle and actionable insights have been too hard to extract. This has now changed. Our collective industry ability to apply more discipline and rigor to Data Operations and the maturity of Machine Learning and AI developments fuel our unwavering belief in the promise of Data.

To get the full benefits of modern data applications, you need reliable, optimal performance from those applications. And that’s no easy task when everything is running on what has been a massive, ungainly stack – different technologies, stretching across on-premises and cloud environments. You have not had the visibility or the resources to monitor each element, understand how they’re all working together, find and resolve issues, and optimize for the greatest efficiency and effectiveness.

It’s time to stop being reactive and start getting proactive. Data is only useful if you can depend on it. I joined Unravel not only because of their strong belief system around the promise of data but also in their ability to help you build understanding, remediate issues, uncover opportunities, and ensure your applications remain effective and reliable.

Ultimately, Unravel is here to help you get ahead of the game, avoid nasty surprises, and be ready for whatever new needs and technologies you’ll have in the future. In addition to providing recommendations for today’s needs, we also help you plan for what’s next – modeling how you’re going to grow, for instance, and what you need to do to keep up with that growth. I couldn’t be more excited about our industry at this time and of course the phenomenal team I have the privilege to be joining.
