Deb Seys is determined to democratize access to data—working at the intersection of people, technology and knowledge to make it happen, with a focus on how employees find, understand, and use data in their jobs. For over 20 years, she’s worked on applications, search engines, and websites that serve employees inside an enterprise, most recently at eBay. Her goal has always been to enable users to help themselves to find, consume, and collaborate with information and data. In other roles, she delivered search and taxonomy technology for the intranet at Kaiser Permanente and was a systems librarian at Hewlett-Packard Labs Research Library. Deb holds an MLIS from UC Berkeley.
