Financial Industry Expert Julio Gomez Joins UIA/Data Analytics Provider Attivio

Julio Gomez, the founder of Gomez, Inc. and Innovation Councils, has joined Attivio to help it expand in the financial services industry.

Financial services veteran Julio Gomez, founder of Gomez, Inc. and former head of research at IDC Financial Insights, has been named general manager of Financial Services at Attivio, a provider of enterprisewide data analysis tools.

Gomez most recently ran Innovation Councils, a financial industry executive-level think tank that focuses on key issues facing the insurance, banking and capital markets spaces marketplace. The Innovations Councils roundtable meetings will continue as scheduled, says Gomez. Earlier in his career, Gomez was also an analyst with Forrester Research.

In an email interview with Wall Street & Technology, Gomez says he joined Attivio because of the growing usage of SaaS in the enterprise, and because financial firms have yet to solve the data integration and analysis problem. "Part of the analyst in me is focused on the next thing, which is clearly SaaS," he says. "But the consultant in me realizes that today's problems and many of tomorrow's problems don't need new business models as much as they need correctness. Enterprise software is correct for many of the most gnarly problems in the industry."
