Zynga’s Vice President of Analytics and Platform Technologies, Ken Rudin, has agreed to be a presenter at the Cloud Analytics Summit hosted by THINKstrategies, the Cloud Computing Showplace and Rising Tide Media on Wednesday, April 25 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA.

The purpose of the Cloud Analytics Summit is to provide a forum for corporate decision-makers to learn about the latest Cloud solutions aimed at addressing their business intelligence (BI) and analytics needs, so they can harness their ‘Big Data’ sources, and integrate their systems and applications into a more productive enterprise-wide resource to satisfy their business requirements.

Ken will participate in a panel session entitled, “Redefining BI & Analytics in the Cloud”, with Doug Harr, the CIO at Splunk.

Ken is responsible for managing Zynga’s massive analytics platform and generating key insights that drive Zynga’s strategy, and delivering key social, communication, and personalization technologies which act as the foundation of its social gaming platforms. Previously, Ken was the Founder/CEO of LucidEra, a pioneer in the on-demand analytics market. Before founding LucidEra, Ken was VP/GM of Siebel CRM OnDemand and VP Marketing for Siebel Analytics (now Oracle Analytics). Ken also served as Senior VP of Products for Salesforce.com and started his career at the Scalable Systems Division at Oracle.

In addition to Doug Harr, Ken is also joining the following speakers at the Cloud Analytics Summit:

  • Jane Griffin, Americas Leader of Deloitte Consulting LLP’s Analytics Practice
  • Ju-kay Kwek, Product Manager of Google’s Big Data Initiative
  • David Roth, CEO/Co-Founder, AppFirst
  • Joseph Szmadzinski, CEO, IT Management Resources
  • Chuck DeVita, Founder, Growth Process Group

The Cloud Analytics Summit is a part of the 2012 Cloud Innovators Summit executive forum series aimed at helping corporate decision-makers better understand how they can leverage the latest Cloud innovations to satisfy their business requirements and achieve their business objectives.
