Syncsort to Lead Strata + Hadoop World Session on How CFOs Can Utilize Big Data to Reduce Risk & Drive Growth

CFO & COO to Discuss Data Analytics as the New Gold Standard in Fiscal Decision-Making; How Working with Over 2,000 Engineers at NYSE Euronext Led Him to Rethink the CFO Role

New York City, NY – September 22, 2015

Strata New York Syncsort, a global leader in Big Data integration solutions and mainframe software, announced today that CFO and COO, Krish Venkataraman, will be presenting at Strata + Hadoop World. Mr. Venkataraman will share how Big Data has redefined the traditional finance role of CFOs as companies are investing more in technologies to drive business strategy. This new breed of CFOs needs to understand how to harness the power of big data and predictive analytics in fiscal decision-making to reduce risk to position their companies for success.

“Compliance, regulatory and global scale are adding significant complexities to businesses, and without the ability to analyze and interpret vast amounts of data, companies are going to be lost,” said Krish Venkataraman, CFO and COO at Syncsort. “Big Data and analytics are giving CFOs unprecedented decision-making support, allowing them to better manage both the pre- and post-operational risk associated with different events. It’s a pivotal time for CFOs and Big Data is the driving force. I look forward to sharing my insights and experiences with attendees to help them utilize Big Data to make better fiscal decisions for their companies.”

Mr. Venkataraman’s understanding of technology and business operations has helped Syncsort grow as a leader in the Big Data integration and mainframe industries.
