Kevin Davis, a 25-year technology sales veteran in the government market, has been appointed vice president of the public sector business at analytics technology provider Databricks.
He will focus on efforts to help customer agencies adopt artificial intelligence through the combination of data and machine learning approaches in a single platform, Databricks said Wednesday.
“The mission of the government has always been to ensure security for the people and I look forward to helping them achieve that mission with Databricks’ Unified Analytics Platform,” Davis said.
The platform uses a data management engine designed to help organizations process streaming and batch data in real time.
Davis joins the San Francisco-based company after he spent four years in a similar position at Splunk (Nasdaq: SPLK). Before that, he served as area VP of the defense technology sales business at Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) for nine years.
