Sumanth Vakada

Founder & CEO

Sumanth Vakada

I am a technology innovator and leader, that has worked in multiple business domains delivering both products and services with successful results. I had the opportunity to launch technology products off the ground and also successfully manage and enhance products to continue on a growth trajectory.

I founded Qualetics Data Machines, with over 20 years of deep technology domain experience working with data heavy systems. Data is ubiquitous now more than ever and every entity is a data producer or consumer if not both. Having a Data strategy along with an Intelligence strategy is crucial for every organization that’s heading into the Fourth Industrial Revolution which is driven by information. This doesn’t mean every company needs to become a Data and AI company, but they do need to have a Data & AI strategy similar to any other core business strategy.

Qualetics’ commercial success has everything to do with how well we help our partners and clients apply AI innovations to help their businesses. In my 30 plus years at companies like McGraw-Hill/Standard & Poors, Kaplan, and Thomson Reuters I’ve had the pleasure of working with brilliant people applying new technologies to reinvent businesses and solve complex client problems.

Working with brilliant people applying cutting edge technologies to complex business problems continues with our work at Qualetics. And it’s in that work we’ve been able to apply the same qualities that made the Software as a Service software delivery method so popular to a Data Intelligence as a Service delivery model. The gulf between the inspiring work of ideating AI innovations and mining their value requires navigating a lot of implementation challenges. We can help.
