He will lead efforts by the Massachusetts computing vendor top move more deeply into the enterprise market space.
Pneuron Corporation, a Woburn, Massachusetts-based computing vendor, has appointed Thomas Fountain CTO.
Fountain, previously CIO at agribusiness firm Bunge, will be responsible for shaping product direction and market positioning of Pneuron's distributed-solutions platform. He will also look to re-define the price-performance curve for complex business problems that have not been served successfully through traditional, enterprise data warehouses or Big Data solutions.
"With rapidly evolving new technologies, there is a real opportunity for CIOs, CTOs and architects to think differently about how they serve the total breadth of customer analytics demand," he says. "Just like the business serving external customers, IT has an opportunity to segment demand and develop focused strategies to serve each segment. The resulting multi-alternative approach may well yield a lower total-cost-of environment for the enterprise."
Prior to Bunge, he worked at Fortune 100 conglomerate Honeywell, where he rose to the position of vice president, CIO for their $5.2 billion specialty materials business group. Previously, he held CIO roles at GE divisions where he led business process improvement programs which integrated organizational development, information technology and Six Sigma strategies.
