Arun is the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Cybage Software. Cybage is a data-driven company, and this work ethic primarily originates from Arun’s thought process of giving more importance to how the analysis of data is applied to decision-making rather than the data alone. This thought process has led to the conceptualization of the DecisionMines™ for Digital Excellence, which is a unique data-driven system used for all core decision-making in the organization.
