Utopia, Inc., a global leader in enterprise data lifecycle management (EDLM) solutions, announced today the hiring of David Kuketz as their EIM client partner for the Southeast region. Kuketz joins Utopia with extensive experience in data services revolving around enterprise supply chain solutions.
Kuketz has over 15 years of experience in enterprise content management (ECM). In the mid-1990s integrated business systems ran primarily on mainframes and Unix. Kuketz joined a company who went above and beyond the norm in ECM called TEAM Corporation, which created solutions on Windows NT – leading edge, integrated data, and business processes on PCs. With unheard of ROI, TEAM was bought out by Cadence Design Systems where Kuketz continued to drive value for clients around content. When Kuketz joined Aspect Development, Inc. (purchased by i2 Technologies, Inc.) he became more engrossed in the EIM space especially around data cleansing, enrichment, and data migrations which supported industry verticals globally. Kuketz understands the high value customers attain when software and data management consulting services are brought together. This experience proves valuable as it relates to Utopia’s relationship with SAP® BusinessObjects™ and how Utopia provides data migration, data quality, and data governance solutions and services SAP® BusinessObjects™ technology.
“We are very pleased to welcome Dave to our sales team and look forward to his solid leadership,” said Doug Jones, vice president of sales at Utopia. “Kuketz’s business intellect and understanding of data consulting services is invaluable to our organization as we grow. His ability to help clients optimize their ERP and reporting applications by using a repeatable framework and methodology will help clients solve real business challenges.”
“I’m proud to be a business team member for the world’s leader in EDLM solutions,” said Kuketz. “Excellence in data migration, data quality, data archiving, and data governance provides companies with a significant competitive advantage. Data is one of the most important assets a company has, yet it takes the right mix of people, processes, technology, and leadership to unlock its true potential. Utopia’s solutions and services create that excellence in data, reduce risks, shorten the time-to-value, and de-risk the launching of today’s high-performance business applications.”
