Company Profile


Nube is a big data analysis product
development company. We deal with data of the order of terabytes or more and
help customers derive business value from semi structured, structured and
completely unstructured data. We have two open source products for Big Data -
Crux Reporting and Analysis, and HIHO for  ETL with RDBMS, Salesforce and
other data stores, along with dedupilcation and merging of data. All our products
are built on the open source Apache Hadoop stack, and we provide deployment,
consulting and support around them.  We were founded in 2010 to cater to
the growing need for making sense of the growing data by organizations of all
size. We provide data science using cutting edge technology.

Risk Involved
The
risk for a product company is always having a better or competing product in
the market. So far, we havent encountered these risks as our offerings are
unique and superior to the competition. Another risk is finding and retaining
talent. To mitigate this, we have a built in training program for our new hires
which gets them started. Avoiding distractions is also a big challenge, we are
in a hot field and we have to stay very focused.
Major lesson encountered


A big lesson is that product
marketing and packaging are as important as the product. Technologists tend to
forget that very often and that is a big mistake. The second lesson is that you
need to have people to share your dreams and your ideas, those who have the
same passion or more for what you believe in. Its team effort at the end of the
day. My third lesson is that if you create value, people will sit up and
notice. 

Your motivation factor


Solving challenges and making a mark
on the international technology space remain my highest goals. We want to ship
world class software products out of India, thats a big drive. 

Summarize your current role
I
do as lot of stuff at Nube and am involved in all major aspects. Over the
years, the managerial and people facing role has increased and I have worked on
my communication and presentation skills, people management and personal
efficiency. I have also learnt to delegate more effectively.
Advice to young Entrepreneurs


I would say that if you love
creating things and enjoy the journey rather than the destination,
entrepreneurship is great. One does need a lot of patience and there may be
some setbacks, but every iteration grows you up and teaches you so many things.
Also, while we are in the corporate world as an employee, there are so many
things we take for granted - office infrastructure, networks, administrative
staff, sick and vacation time. But as an entrepreneur, all these are part of
the parcel you have to deliver, and you deal with them on a daily basis.
Eventually, its who you are and where you want to go.
