Strong Momentum Propels Company Into the Back Half of 2017
AUSTIN, Texas – August 1, 2017 – Magnitude Software, Inc., a leader in enabling corporate performance management (CPM), master data management (MDM) and data connectivity in heterogeneous environments, today announced industry veteran Tony Fisher has joined the company. As the General Manager for the Connectivity business, Fisher will be responsible for strategy, growth, product and operations as well as integrating the company’s Simba-based technologies for new Magnitude solutions.
Fisher has been at the forefront of the data management space, spending nearly two decades driving business and navigating the evolution of big data, data management and connectivity. Prior to joining Magnitude Software, Fisher served in various capacities for leading data management providers, including DataFlux Corporation (Chief Executive Officer), Progress Software (Vice President Data Collaboration and Integration) and Zaloni (Senior Vice President, Strategy and Business Development). Under his leadership at DataFlux Corporation, DataFlux grew to the worldwide leader in data quality. In his capacity at Zaloni, he helped the organization in its evolution to a leading software provider in data lake management technology.
“Technology advances have yielded a flood of data – social, location, behavioral, Internet of Things-driven. Answering the important business questions requires knowing what data you have, where and how it relates to the problem you’re trying to solve,” said Fisher. “Connectivity is a foundational technology, essential to making sense of all this information. By tightly integrating this capability with the rest of the Magnitude portfolio, customers will have the means to derive meaningful insights from their data, wherever it resides. I’m excited to accelerate the pace of innovation at Magnitude to help enterprises make sense of all their data.”
Fisher joins Magnitude Software at a time of increasing momentum, propelled by the needs of enterprises to access, analyze and act on the right data in order to make critical business decisions, innovate and enhance how they manage corporate performance. The company has expanded its base to include more than half of the Fortune 500 and all the leaders in the 2017 Gartner Business Intelligence Magic Quadrant.
“Innovation is no longer the sole domain of a small group of ‘really smart people’ within a company. The advent of massive amounts of data has put innovation in the hands of everyone, yet only some have the ability work with it,” said Chris Ney, chairman and CEO, Magnitude Software. “We have decades of experience supporting innovation for major brands by better connecting, harmonizing, governing and analyzing their data. Adding another strong industry leader to our family will accelerate our ability to deliver effective solutions with higher support levels, faster time-to-value and lower risk than our competitors.”
