Qrious announces appointment of Ed Hyde as CEO

Qrious, the smart data business launched by Spark New Zealand in March 2014, has announced the appointment of Ed Hyde as its Chief Executive Officer.

Ed brings a wealth of experience in senior roles with technology companies in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and has been instrumental in the successful establishment of the Spark Ventures innovation and incubator business unit within Spark New Zealand.

Rod Snodgrass, Chief Executive of Spark Ventures, is delighted with the appointment, saying, “Qrious is ready to expand its horizons and deliver insights to more New Zealand businesses. Ed has a strong strategic, product and commercial focus, but more importantly Ed is a guy who wants to push boundaries, challenge the status quo and change the game. That approach and mind-set will be pivotal as Qrious helps New Zealand organisations create value from data, analytics and applications.”

Ed Hyde said, “We are living in a new digital age, where the smart use of data is an exploding global phenomena. It’s rapidly changing the way people live and do business. Qrious helps businesses better leverage available data to make quicker and more improved decisions than previously possible.

“Significant benefits can be derived from the combination of information, the insights that can be gleaned from that information, and the application of those insights into valuable action. Qrious brings together a powerful combination of platform and people expertise to help New Zealand businesses better utilise data.

“Organisations can privately and securely host their own data and combine this with other public or private datasets such as demographic data, address databases and weather to create more powerful insights than previously possible. Our experts can help them to work with this data to derive valuable information and understanding.”

Qrious already offers a number of products and services including the Qrious Data Locker, a cloud based Platform as a Service offering built specifically for Big Data, Qrious BI (Business information), Qrious Analytics which is a Data science capability and the Insights Exchange which allows customers to access and utilise valuable datasets.
