Angoss Software Names Vikram Gaitonde Vice President of Product Management

TORONTO, Sept. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Angoss Software Corporation (Angoss), announces the appointment of Vikram Gaitonde as Vice President of Product Management and member of Angoss’ Senior Leadership Team.

Prior to joining Angoss, Vikram held the role of Vice President, Products for Solix Technologies, a leading provider of Enterprise Data Management solutions. During his time at Solix, Vikram was the head of the Product Management and Engineering teams and led the organization’s overall product and delivery strategy.  Vikram has also acted as a strategic advisor for a number of successful Silicon Valley tech start ups in the consumer mobile, gaming, security, and compliance domains.

Angoss President and Chief Executive Officer Rick Makos said, “We are very excited to have Vikram join the team. His leading edge experience in the Apache Hadoop and Spark space is a competitive advantage to the company. I think we have sent a very clear and strong message to not only our customers, but the entire analytics marketplace by bringing him on, that making Big Data accessible to data science professionals and business users is a key priority for Angoss.”

One of Vikram’s key priorities will be to drive Angoss Software’s product roadmap, beginning with a new analytics software product based on the Apache Spark framework that is expected to hit the market later this year.

This announcement follows the news earlier this year of the addition of another Silicon Valley sales and marketing veteran, Bob Schick to Angoss’ Senior Leadership team as Chief Solutions Officer and Vice President of Business Development.

“I am excited to be working closely with both Bob and Vikram,” noted Angoss’ Global Head of Sales, Alan Woodworth. “We have been able to hone our vision by leveraging their combined experience in the data and analytics space. This insight is going to lead to some of the market’s strongest analytics offerings, leading to the generation of even greater incremental value for our customers.”
