Experienced data executive appointed to oversee data transformation engagements in region as demand grows
BackOffice Associates have announced the hiring of Renu Jagadish, to the newly-created role of VP for the ANZ region. The move comes as BackOffice Associates consolidate their position in the local market, having opened offices in Sydney and Brisbane over the past couple of years. The company lists Orica, Endeavour Energy and Transport NSW as customers.
“As digital transformation continues to gather pace across the region, BackOffice Associates is witnessing significant demand in the need for data related services in Australia and New Zealand.
We are uniquely positioned to help progress-minded companies in their journey to data maturity and help them harness the power of their data across their SAP® solutions and non-SAP solutions,” said Krish Datta, CEO for BackOffice Associates across the Asia Pacific, Japan and the Middle East.
Renu holds a Master’s Degree in Management from Macquarie Graduate School of Management in Sydney and has an extensive history leading data transformation programs across the Asia Pacific region, including time spent leading Insights & Data Advisory and Consulting Capabilities for Capgemini ANZ. His previous experience also includes hands-on technical roles along with delivering and leading consulting engagements in areas of data strategy, enterprise data management, architecture and data-driven process engineering.
The appointment underpins significant growth for BackOffice Associates in Australia and New Zealand region, following the customer successes delivered and the opportunity seen in the market, as data management becomes a norm. With customer’s most important asset – data – much in demand, BackOffice Associates’ over 20 years track record will be of added advantage.
Renu, who has played a part in over twenty major transformation programs across the Asia Pacific and North America regions, comments, “We are entering a period where the market demands specialised services, and in deploying solutions, organisations are looking to work with a partner who has specific IP and expertise backed by experience. For more than 20 years, BackOffice Associates has developed solutions that have been leading adopters in the areas of data migration, closed-looped data quality management and Information Governance. We do have the ability to help organisations maximise the value of data, regardless of the state it is in.”
