Data Republic, a leading provider of enterprise products and services for data-driven innovation, announced today the appointment of Scott Albin as its new Head of Ecosystem Services, effective immediately.
Mr Albin has spent the past nine years working as a consultant at PwC, advising organisations on data, analytics and artificial intelligence. His expertise in data technology adoption and implementation will be invaluable to Data Republic customers, who are focused on boosting data-driven innovation and fostering partnerships in the emerging data economy.
Data Republic CEO Danny Gilligan said:
Scott has come on board to define how Data Republic supports our customers to build a networked data ecosystem around themselves. Our technology facilitates data exchange and collaboration between entities. However, most organisations are still at an early stage of data maturity. With Scott at the helm of the data ecosystem services team, we will be able to accelerate the pace with which companies can forge data partnerships and scale data-driven innovation.
On his appointment, Mr Albin said:
Organisations are generating more and more data, but all too often it isn’t the data they need to solve their problems. That data is held by other organisations, sometimes existing business partners. For many years I watched as organisations adopted some of the best tools for analytics and AI but gained little meaningful insight. They simply don’t have the right data to power the algorithms. Data Republic enables enterprises to claim their stake in the new data economy and realise a vision where data and algorithms can move easily between organisations without compromising security or governance.
Data Republic already has an ecosystem of banks, telcos, airlines, retailers, payment providers and others who have joined the Data Republic platform. The next phase of growth is exciting and I’m looking forward to being part of it.
