Cloud analytics company Teradata has appointed Keith Budge to the newly created role of Executive Vice President of APAC and Japan. As Teradata’s head executive in the region, he will also have a strong focus on the Australian business.

Teradata delivers data intelligence that enables Australian organisations across a range of sectors, including banking and financial services, telecommunications and government, to leverage all of their data.

Budge joins Teradata after more than 25 years leading businesses in Asia Pacific for US-headquartered enterprise technology companies. His experience includes transformational business leadership in established technology companies and entrepreneurial leadership in venture stage start-up technology companies.

He has also held roles as a Senior VP for Oracle Corporation, Business Objects (now part of SAP) and Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories.

As a member of global management teams, Budge has created billions of dollars of shareholder value and has been a key contributor to five early-stage technology start-up companies that have gone on to be sold, including Greenplum, Ooyala and Platfora.

Looking into 2020 and beyond, Budge has a close eye on the implications of new innovation in big data analytics and AI and the way legacy organisations are responding to the disruption of opportunistic newcomers. He is passionate about helping them reinvent their business to better leverage their capabilities and truly take advantage of what new technologies can enable.

“Joining Teradata at this point in its journey is a great evolution for me and my curiosity for the way technology is actively improving communities and economies,” said Budge.

“This new chapter excites me because I’ve worked with Teradata as both a partner and a competitor and I’ve seen how it’s deep heritage in data – and ability to handle data analytics at a scale no one else can – enables it to deliver quite incredible outcomes for local businesses and governments. I now get to be part of how we continue to do that in the future.”
