Akshay completed his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from the Birla Institute of Technology & Science in India.
He interned for six months at Zoomcar, a tech-based car rental startup in Bangalore, as a product and operations analyst. He was responsible for launching a new operations product, which involved the delivery and collection of cars from the user’s address. He witnessed first-hand how all decision-making for this product was based on the insights gained from analysis of existing data; be it designing the process flows, or setting up the operations and customer support infrastructures.
Working at Zoomcar, he marveled at how technology could convert seemingly random data into meaningful reports, thereby leading to informed decisions and more effective control over a business. This endeavor made him realize his affinity for the Business Analytics field. Today, we are witnessing an explosion of data due to the simultaneous rise of cloud, social and mobile computing. We are at the cusp of a major data-led technological revolution. Akshay hopes to play his part in the revolution by using his analytics expertise to serve organizations in the operations, finance and e-commerce domain and helping them leverage the power of data to make informed decisions.
