Welcome Pradeep Bhanot to Actian Marketing! By John Bard October 23, 2017 Pradeep loves to write about technology, which will come in handy as he manages product marketing for our analytics portfolio. He has been up close and personal with database technology as first a DBA for DB2, then as an Oracle sales engineer and product manager . Earlier in his career he even coded in IBM mainframe assembly language! He has never strayed far from his experience working to make his customers more successful. Ask him about his experience using drones for supply chain management, which is a great example of one of the IoT application areas he has worked in. His greatest satisfaction comes from explaining complex product features in a compelling way to business users. Outside of work, Pradeep has a focus on cameras, cars, and chess. His career has taken him back and forth between the UK and the US, and he hopes to retire into the Berkshire countryside one day. Please welcome Pradeep to the team!
