PRESS RELEASE

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Infoworks.io, the leading provider of software solutions for agile data engineering, announced today that it has named Buno Pati as Chief Executive Officer, moving from his previous role as Executive Chairman to drive the company’s accelerated growth. The Company also announced that Amar Arsikere, who co-founded Infoworks in 2014, has been appointed Chief Product Officer and CTO. The Company separately announced today that David Dorman, former Chairman and CEO of AT&T, has joined the Infoworks as Chairman of the Board.

Pati has been Chairman of the Board of Infoworks since inception and moved into the role of Executive Chairman in late 2017, focused on building out the Company’s go-to-market strategy and execution. Pati brings a 20-year track record of success in leading and building technology companies, including Numerical Technologies, which he led as CEO through its successful IPO and eventual acquisition. Pati has served as CEO, board member, investor and advisor to numerous technology companies in Silicon Valley and Europe. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of Infoworks, Sauce Labs and SecureWorks and is a partner at Centerview Capital Technology, a growth stage venture capital fund.

“I am excited to take an even deeper operational role with this remarkable team and company, as our growth accelerates in response to explosive market demand,” said Buno Pati, newly-named CEO at Infoworks. “Amar is a true visionary who correctly anticipated the needs of the market and has also established a culture of excellence at Infoworks. I am honored to build on the foundation that he has created as we progress on our journey to be a transformative industry leader.”

Arsikere, a proven pioneer in big data, built the world’s largest in-memory database infrastructure while at Zynga and one of the first big data analytics platforms during his tenure at Google. Recognizing the inefficiencies of manual coding in data engineering, Arsikere created a data engineering automation platform to eliminate complexity across the entire data workflow. This early work informed the foundation for Infoworks.

“It has been amazing to watch Infoworks grow quickly on the heels of large enterprise customer deployments. I am thrilled to partner with Buno Pati and Dave Dorman, our new Chairman, who both bring tremendous experience in deploying disruptive technologies and scaling companies, as we embark on the next phase of our journey,” said Amar Arsikere, newly-named Chief Product Officer and CTO and co-founder of Infoworks. “I am also excited to move into my new role, which will allow me to focus my energy on building the product, working closely with the world’s best product, engineering and customer success teams.”
