Expertise: Business intelligence, data warehousing, data quality
Education: BEng (Computer Science), Anna University, Chennai, India
I opened the doors to the world of data by opting for a specialisation curriculum in data warehousing at university, which paved my way to a career in business intelligence. I upped my way through India’s technological boom in the early 2000s by further honing on my data skills, enabling me to travel to the UK to further advance my career.
My data journey has now spanned 14 years in business analysis and data management – disrupting and transforming data as well as technology initiatives across various telecom and utility businesses along the way.
Having always had the hope for a fairer and an equal world, I believe data is ‘the lifeline of the masses,’ and to be an enabler in the social and the economic upliftment of the community at large.
I recently joined M&G’s Chief Data Office (CDO) as a Product Owner and Data Management Manager, trusted with the roadmap for the data catalogue and the adoption of data principles and policies by change initiatives. I’m glad to be part of an organisation who believes in team collaboration and offers a flexible and supportive environment.
Outside of work, I’m a regular working mom of two young boys (six and three years old). My maternity breaks and recent juggling of home schooling and home working during the various lockdowns has made me realise the value of women’s extra efforts to be successful in a workplace
