Vice President, Professional Services
Randy is a 30+ year veteran of the IT industry with a technical focus on very-large databases, massively parallel systems and data warehousing, and a managerial focus on the professional services business and data warehouse programs.
His most recent role prior to Lancet was at Best Buy where he Managed Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence for 3½ years. Mattran led the teams who built the Customer Centric Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), migrated to the massively parallel Teradata platform, deployed a 13,000 user system measuring sales proficiency and margin contribution in the stores, and made numerous enhancements to Best Buy's existing supply chain analysis capabilities. While proud of the tangible accomplishments, his most significant take away is a renewed empathy for the Lancet client community and the challenges they face daily.
Randy started his career in consulting with a firm similar to Lancet. After 5 years, he moved to Tandem Computers where he progressed through several technical and sales support positions. He was instrumental in the field deployment of NonStop SQL, and the company's transition to a formal professional services organization. In 1994, Mattran was appointed Director of Decision Support Solutions. He helped Tandem move into the data warehousing market, and his team led the implementation of several innovative BI systems in the retail, insurance and telco industries. Randy joined MicroStrategy in 1996 as a Regional Consulting Manager, and later became the Director of Production Engineering. In this role Randy was responsible for the growth and development of the consulting organization which peaked at over 600 employees, and was responsible for service offerings, services marketing, consultant training, and the project management office.
At Lancet, Mattran is responsible for Business Intelligence Professional Services, and functions as a Business Development Manager and Practice Manager for the Advisory Services Group. While Lancet's senior staff members require minimal engagement supervision, Randy makes certain that projects are launched with realistic expectations and mitigated risks. Randy is available as an advisor to data warehouse leaders who need the support of a trusted colleague to accelerate particular components of their program.
