"I am confident we are putting into place a team that is not only committed to delivering WANdisco's current mission but also committed to our future in this industry," said David Richards, Chairman and CEO of WANdisco.

He has also held roles at corporations including GNS Software and Mozart Systems Corporation throughout his 20 years' experience in computer software and engineering.

As Director of Demand Generation, Ribback will develop and implement demand strategies that will help WANdisco expand its reach into the enterprise and developer markets. He joins WANdisco from ThoughtWorks, a company wholly devoted to the art and science of custom software, where he was Director of Marketing.

Combined with his previous positions at organizations like CollabNet, SourceForge and Rainmaker Systems, Ribback has nearly 20 years' experience building global strategic capabilities involving B2B enterprise software as well as Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) product marketing.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
