VMware, DataRobot, Presidio, Amazon Web Services, SAP and Google were among the tech giants to make executive hires during the month.
In February, Debanjan Saha joined DataRobot as its new president and chief operating officer. Saha will work with CEO Dan Wright to expand the use of the DataRobot’s AI Cloud platform to more customers globally and help scale its product, engineering, technology innovation, security, strategy and marketing functions
Saha joined the Boston-based AI cloud provider after more than two years with Google Cloud, where he worked as vice president and general manager of data analytics.
Saha had been responsible for engineering, operations and go-to-market for Google Cloud Platform’s analytics business. His Google Cloud product/services purview included BigQuery – a fully managed, petabyte-scale, multi-cloud analytics data warehouse – along with Dataflow, Pub/Sub, Dataproc, Cloud Data Fusion, Cloud Composer and Data Catalog.
Saha joined Google Cloud in 2019 from rival Amazon Web Services, where he spent close to five years in roles that included vice president and general manager of Amazon Aurora and Amazon Relational Database Service.
He led the launches of Amazon Aurora – a fully managed relational database engine and one of AWS’ fastest growing services ever – and AWS Glue, a serverless data-preparation service for extract, transform and load operations, according to his LinkedIn page.
Saha previously held multiple executive and technical leadership positions in IBM.
