Vice President – Insights & Data Global Practice, Capgemini

It is crucial to collaborate closely with your clients and truly understand their business challenges if you are to develop solutions to overcome those hurdles.

I am a Vice President within Capgemini’s Insights & Data practice. In this role, I connect with the business and technology leaders of Fortune 500 organizations to understand their business challenges and partner with them to develop solutions they need to succeed. I am focused on the manufacturing, automotive, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, and energy and utilities sectors.

My business experience includes developing and delivering analytics and data-management service offerings for multiple industries. I also have extensive experience delivering program management, architecture, design-to-deliver, business intelligence, analytics, and performance-management solutions.

I have managed I&D projects in India, overseeing more than 9,000 analytics professionals over three years. I have also led smart-insights solutions and platform development, smart-asset-management projects, and a smart-procurement-management implementation.

Recent work includes

  • Providing thought leadership solutions for vital business problems to understand customer pain points, working closely with technology partners to develop positive outcomes
  • Driving analytics and data-management offerings across verticals with an extensive understanding of critical business drivers in global markets and industries.

Within every team structure I am a part of, I promote a collaborative and constructive approach. This is crucial to ensure team members work effectively in a matrix organization across a global enterprise.

And another thing…

Before joining Capgemini, I worked as a VP and Global Head for Business Intelligence and Analytics at IGATE. I was also a General Manager and Business Head for Analytics and Information Management at a renowned tech company.

I have been with Capgemini for over four years. I am currently based in Chicago, Illinois.
