SAN FRANCISCO – (January 17, 2019) – -- OmniSci, the pioneer in GPU-accelerated analytics, today announced the hiring of Ray Falcione Jr. as its new Vice President of U.S. Federal Business. Falcione, a technology industry veteran with over 25 years of experience in the federal government space, will focus on expanding the OmniSci presence within the U.S. government market, deepening partnerships and ensuring customers are successful in adopting OmniSci technology.
Falcione comes to OmniSci from Adobe, Inc., where he was Director of Federal Programs, serving national security, law enforcement, Homeland Security and military intelligence customers. Prior to Adobe, he held the position of Vice President at Software AG Government Solutions, an enterprise software company. Falcione has also served in senior management positions with Brocade, Oracle and Sun Microsystems.
“We are thrilled to have Ray join our leadership team. He has a deep understanding of the real-world needs of customers throughout the federal government,” said Todd Mostak, co-founder and CEO of OmniSci. “His insights, leadership skills and dedication to solving the government’s most difficult mission challenges through data analytics will be of immense value for our customers and OmniSci.”

“Federal agencies are dealing with increasingly massive amounts of data on a daily basis. One of their top priorities is how to get better use of that data—an objective for which OmniSci is truly a game-changer,” stated Falcione. “The OmniSci platform, driven by ultrafast GPU-accelerated analytics processing, gives analysts and data scientists the power to query and visualize massive, multi-billion row datasets in seconds. Because it ‘lowers the cost of curiosity,’ it is redefining the limits of speed and scale in Big Data analytics.”
OmniSci achieves ground-breaking real-time analytics and data visualization outcomes in use cases as diverse as geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), battlefield information dominance, fleet telematics, logistics operations, telecommunication network operations and investment management.
