Pactera EDGE Bolsters AI Engineering Capabilities With New Senior Talent and AI Execution Team
Redmond, WA (PRUnderground) April 21st, 2020
Pactera EDGE, a world-class digital solution provider for the data-driven, intelligent enterprise, announced today the details of a bold new plan to bolster the company’s growing AI focus, which is responsible for ground-breaking AI solutions that provide innovation and value to the company’s roster of enterprise customers.
This strategic move comes at a time when enterprise companies jockey for strategic market position, higher revenue, lower costs, optimized operation, and a better customer experience. For Pactera EDGE, it’s become clear AI-enabled platforms allow intelligence innovation and breakthrough solutions for these companies, and it’s where the company wants to bolster its capabilities.
To lead Pactera EDGE’s AI strategy forward, the company has hired senior management talent including Ahmer Inam, as Chief AI Officer and Rajeev Sharma as Global Head of AI Solutioning and Delivery – two equally important roles to further solidify Pactera EDGE’s AI positioning in the market.
Inam brings more than 20-years of experience driving organizational transformation by employing the analytics, development, and deployment of data products. He has held leadership roles at Nike Inc., Wells Fargo, Sonic Automotive, and Cambia Health Solutions.
“Ahmer Inam has an unparalleled talent for solving AI’s toughest challenges,” said Pactera EDGE CEO, Venkat Rangapuram. “Under his lead, we will develop AI solutions that transform business processes and enable enhanced customer experiences for today’s global enterprise.”
In addition to corporate leadership roles, Inam has conducted analytics consulting for PwC and Quaero for clients such as ESPN, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Liberty Tax and ADP.
“AI is really all about realizing the untapped power of data,” Ahmer Inam said. “Pactera EDGE’s skills with global, multi-format and multi-language data labeling gives us a marketplace leg-up in rapidly prototyping and scaling these AI products. There is tremendous potential here, and I can’t wait to bring our exciting new projects to market.”
Also as part of their strategic AI plan, the company announced they have hired the entire team of Nova IQ, a deep learning solutions company, as full time employees – and have named Novia IQ’s former president, Rajeev Sharma, as Pactera EDGE’s Global Head of AI Solutioning and Delivery.
As President and CEO of Nova IQ, Sharma attracted top tier talent and was responsible for building enterprise scale intelligent platforms for Wall Street and the logistics industry in India, all within a span of 16-months.
“We’ve seen increased marketplace momentum in the area of data curation through both our successful Oneforma platform and growth of Machine Learning projects in MS like Fraud and Office IP,” noted Rangapuram. “In his new role, Rajeev, and the novia IQ team, will build on that momentum and create adjacent AI engineering capabilities to deliver E2E AI projects.”
