NEW YORK, N.Y., June 18, 2012 — Opera Solutions, LLC, has announced Shawn Blevins has joined the company as Executive Vice President and General Manager of Sales. In his new role, Shawn will be responsible for ensuring the company extends its leadership position in the fast-growing market for Big Data predictive analytics.
"The reason I joined Opera can be summed up in a single idea: Directed Actions from machine intelligence producing exponential results. This is unlike anything else in Enterprise Software today as these industrialized Signal Hubs blend external Big Data and company information with deep expertise to give executives the exact actions they can take to drive all new profitability and savings immediately as a cloud-based service without disrupting their legacy investments. There is no one else that has 'cracked the code' on how to deliver these actions inside a repeatable set of solutions. Opera Solutions is a light-year ahead of consultant-built or tool-based approaches, and their customer results show it across the Fortune 50. That's why I am so excited to be here."
Said Opera Solutions CEO Arnab Gupta, "Shawn is a seasoned software sales executive with an impressive track record in selling solutions that make a major difference to enterprise performance. We are delighted to welcome him to the company, and know that his extensive experience and extraordinary track record as a sales and marketing executive with top technology organizations will be indispensable as we grow and scale our organization."
Mr. Blevins' career has included selling large, complex software to some of the world's biggest companies. Most recently, he worked as the Senior Global Director, Worldwide Competitive Sales at SAP. Previously, he was the Senior Director of Solution Architecture for North America at Oracle and Solution Specialist Manager at Microsoft.
Blevins received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from East Tennessee University and holds certifications in Oracle, Microsoft Solutions Development and project management. Blevins has four children and resides in Tennessee.
