Founder and President, Think Big, a Teradata Company

I founded Think Big to help companies realize measurable value from big data. Our expertise spans all facets of data science and data engineering as we help customers create business value from their big data initiatives.

Previously, I was the VP of Engineering at Quantcast where I led the data science and engineering teams who pioneered the use of Hadoop and NoSQL to create a $100 million ad tech business from big data. Prior to that, I founded New Aspects, which provided enterprise consulting for Aspect-Oriented Programming. I was Co-Founder and CTO of B2B applications provider C-Bridge, which we led to a successful IPO. I earned my Master’s in Computer Science from MIT, leaving the PhD program after the idea for C-Bridge placed me in the finals of the 50k Entrepreneurship Contest. Follow me at @ronbodkin.
