Paul Groom is a Big Data Advocate (he hates the word “Guru”) with 20+ years working with MPP Database Design, Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing, and what was called simply ‘VLDBs’ (Very Large Databases) since the time of Briton Lee, a foundational technology that became part of Teradata.

A cartographer by education, he has worked for the British Government and has broken the Amazon Cloud (no major damage). Paul brings practical client experience from tens of thousands of hours building new analytical solutions with MPP and in-memory DBs plus ingenuity to his role as Chief Innovation Officer at Kognitio.
