Kent Graziano, Chief Technical Advisor at Zetaris

Zetaris, the Australian fast growth analytical data virtualisation company enabling real-time joined analysis of data across multiple clouds and the data center, announced a significant United States appointment, securing Kent Graziano as its Chief Technology Advisor.

Kent Graziano decided to come out of semi-retirement to join Zetaris, a fast growth Australian global success story, because he recognises the need for closer integration between the cloud and existing data center solutions to enable real-time analytics.

What does Graziano bring to Zetaris in the new role?

This is the first time Graziano, known as The Data Warrior, a globally recognised thought leader in cloud and data warehousing strategies has agreed to a venture with an Australian company. He has written dozens of articles and books on data modeling, Data Vault, and agile data warehousing. Previously he served as Snowflake’s Chief Technical Evangelist.

Graziano sees a great market opportunity with Zetaris to help enterprise data warehouse, BI and advanced analytics clients, with on-prem and legacy systems migrate to new cloud-based data platform solutions such as Snowflake. Zetaris users can expect a 6x speed-up of data projects, massive reduction in cloud compute costs and a 3x reduction in the total project cost when overlaying the Zetaris Networked Data Platform across existing data tools.

Graziano’s expertise is expected to be especially valuable in rolling out Zetaris’s technology in the U.S. big data market. According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the big data market is expected to reach $297.28 billion by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate of 14.52%.

What were the executives’ thoughts on the appointment?

“We are fortunate to have Kent onboard as our Chief Technical Advisor. His extensive understanding of the data warehouse market will be invaluable in guiding the evolution of our Networked Data Platform. His insight will be indispensable as we craft our product roadmap and expand our go-to-market strategy,” said Vinay Samual, CEO and founder of Zetaris.

“What’s exciting is the possibilities presented by real-time analytics. Zetaris has an innovative platform that enables data-driven organisations to get immediate insight and value without transferring all their data immediately to the cloud. I’m delighted to be asked to advise Zetaris and help the company achieve new levels of success,” Kent Graziano commented.

Zetaris offers an analytical data virtualization platform that delivers access to data trapped in disparate data silos. Zetaris ensures virtual access across the data ecosystem while ensuring data governance and security since data isn’t moved – analysis is performed at the source.
