ABOUT

Welcome! I am Jeff Cotrupe, Industry Director, Big Data & Analytics, Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan. I help companies achieve their goals and dreams through presales and sales, business development, competitive intelligence, and product management.

In 2014 100% Solutions named me a leading Big Data Influencer along with Cloudera, EMC, IBM, MAPR, and other companies and individuals. I have launched and managed 20 products, generating hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, M&A, and capital, and have worked for or with five startups. I’ve held director-level roles on the product side with ADC Telecommunications (now TE Connectivity) and with global competitive intelligence leaders Gartner and Frost & Sullivan. I grew CommTech from a $10MM to a $25MM company that was acquired by ADC for $185.5MM, and helped Visionael crack key verticals with wins at Comcast and The Pentagon, then win $30MM in funding. I am a Rackspace Cloud University Certified Professional.

I am a powerwalking, CrossFit, Olympic lifting, and Relay For Life enthusiast. My MarketBLOG pagetop photo was shot at the Oceanside Turkey Trot Thanksgiving 5k race, November 2013, which I finished with a time of 24:56.

TECHNOLOGY EXPERTISE

My techology expertise includes these areas:

1] Big Data, analytics, and business intelligence (BI), illustrated in the graphic below, and which I define as including:

  • Big Data & Analytics Core Products and Services (end-to-end)
  • Business Process and Strategic Analytics (point solutions)
  • Customer Experience, Marketing, and Sales Analytics
  • Social and Site Analytics
  • Mobile, Retail, and Location Analytics

The Apache Software Foundation establishes projects that tackle the challenges of accessing, managing, and leveraging Big Data and analytics, and whose open source solutions are at the heart of most data management deployments today. I created two graphics to illustrate…

Apache Software Foundation: Execution Engines

…where these solutions fit into the data management landscape, and how they complement each other.

Apache Software Foundation: Data Governance and Operations

2] Software, infrastructure, and services:

  • Cloud: SaaS, IaaS and PaaS*
  • Enterprise IT network & systems management
  • Operations & business support systems (OSS/BSS)

3] Next-gen asset management; inventory management; network resource management (NRM): I established NRM as an industry category and as a Visionael product name

* Some recognize other types of Cloud such as computing as a service (CaaS), database (DaaS), security (SECaaS) or storage (STaaS), and now analytics as a service (not going to try that acronym)…but I consider all to be sub-groups of SaaS, IaaS, or PaaS.
