About Jim Haughwout

📖 Summary

My passion is harnessing technology to enable people to discover new items of interest, do things they never could before, and solve “unsolvable” problems. My specialty is using technology to drive rapid growth in revenues, scalability and productivity. I am happiest translating a great vision into products and solutions that customers not only find indispensable, but can also use to transform how they live and work. A tech executive with 24 years of experience, I have led multi-hundred-person Fortune-200 organizations, built startup teams from scratch -- and managed almost everything in between. In these roles I have owned functions that span the entire product and technology life cycle from Product, Engineering, QA, and Operations to Evangelism, Consultative Sales, Professional Services and Support. Over the past decade alone, my teams have won 27 awards across a wide range of industries (Advertising, Publishing, Media, eCommerce, Retail, Defense, Enterprise Software, Logistics, and Life Sciences) and technology domains (Big Data, Machine Learning, Analytics, Social Media, Mobile, the Internet of Things, Cloud Computing and Information Security/Cyber). Domain Expertise: ► Mobile, Wearables, M2M and IoT (Apps, Wearables, Sensors--from NFC to SATCOM) ► High-scale Internet and eCommerce (at 400+ million transactions per day) ► Streaming Analytics and Machine Learning (at speeds of 20 million transactions per second) ► Big Data (NoSQL, Search, OLTP and OLAP--at volumes above 500 Petabytes) ► Hosting and deployment (Clouds/SaaS, Private Data Centers, App Stores, OSS) ► Large-scale enterprise systems (Marketing Automation, CRM, Payments, ERP, SCM, C4ISR) Tech Stack and Methodology Experience: See Fun Fact: As a former rocket scientist I can tell you how to turn a Super Ball into rocket fuel. I can also build a water pistol that can cut through a cinder block (I did this working on my undergraduate thesis)Chief Technology Architect & VP of Engineering @ Savi combines IoT, sensor, big data, and machine learning technologies to provide enterprises real-time visibility into their infrastructure and supply chain and actionable insights to improve business risk and performance. (Essentially “IFTTT + Google Analytics” for the Industrial Internet of Things.) I am responsible for all of our architecture (firmware, software, data and systems), software engineering, and data engineering (real-time and batch analytics and machine learning). I invented Savi's Hybrid Lambda Architecture (patent-pending) that combines Hardware Engineering, Complex Event Processing, Streaming Analytics, Machine Learning and Visualization to optimize logistics, prevent supply chain disruptions, reduce fraud, and use predictive intelligence to improve revenue and profitability for billions of dollars of "things"​ in motion. We recently won awards for: 2015 IoT Evolution Product of the Year, 2015 Company of the Year, and 2014 Best Operational Intelligence Product.
