Global Vice President, Strategy, Marketing and Alliances
Doug was most recently vice president of enterprise information management (EIM) at SAP® BusinessObjects™. In 2000 Mr. Jones joined Firstlogic, Inc. where he helped solidify their ability to compete in the data quality space as they branched out from their postal heritage. While at Firstlogic he also created and built their federal division as the company began to realize verticalization was essential in this space. In 2006 Firstlogic was bought by BusinessObjects, Inc. and he stayed on to manage their vertical business for data quality, data integration, data federation and metadata management. Under Mr. Jones' leadership those verticals (telco, CPG/retail, government, finance) flourished as BusinessObjects began to emerge as leaders not just in data quality, but also in data integration.
Early in 2008 SAP purchased BusinessObjects and Mr. Jones ran the North American sales business for all of the EIM business. During this time the master data management (MDM) suite was added to complete the vision, view and message that SAP BusinessObjects was delivering to the market. During 2008, under his leadership, this business grew 50% over 2007 revenues.
Mr. Jones' prior background and 12 years at Dun & Bradstreet where data quality, data modeling, creating custom scorecards in credit, supply chain and finance related businesses was a launching pad for the past nine years as this industry has continued to evolve and mature. His understanding of data, the processes and lifecycle of information from an IT and business view have helped him lead many teams to performance excellence.
Mr. Jones holds two bachelor degrees from Millersville University, English & Economics with specialties in linguistics and international economics. Along with his wife and two sons, he resides in Lancaster, PA where he coaches basketball, enjoys boating and traveling.Go Back
