Joe Perrino

Industry Leadership of the Year

The last several years in state and local government have been “a complete flip” from what leaders in those organizations are used to, says Joe Perrino, Cloudera’s public sector VP. In addition to helping agencies move data into a central repository and priming it for analysis, Perrino says the company is also readying its offerings for the continued shift to hybrid and multi-cloud. The key to success either on-premise or in the cloud is accessibility to data, he says. Having data in a centralized and accessible location allows for better analysis, better security and faster decision making, Perrino says.
