Ryan Peterson joins Data Republic, a disappointment for Dell

Australian Financial Review, March 29, 2016

A fast-growing Australian tech start-up has thrown a spanner in the works of the $US67 billion ($88 billion) acquisition of EMC by US tech giant Dell by poaching one of the key executives central to the deal’s success.

Ryan Peterson, who was chief solutions strategist for EMC’s emerging technologies division, has joined Sydney-based Data Republic to drive its expansion strategy in the United States. His departure is a blow to billionaire Michael Dell’s plans for the merged entity because he was a pioneer of EMC’s big data strategy.
