    We discuss how they first met and where their paths initially crossed. We then look at where the idea for Odaseva came from, what problem they were solving initially and how Sovan got the business up and running. We look at why Olivier is so passionate about the data space and the work he has done so far in his career that has led him to joining Odaseva.

    Sovan explains how Odaseva have had to adapt and innovate over the years, to keep up with the changes that we are seeing with data security and regulations. We discuss what makes data complex and whether there is more to it than purely volume, and also explore the Odaseva platform and why it is so much more than data protection.

    Sovan and Olivier are both highly respected Salesforce CTA's so we explore the role of a CTA and what Sovan feels a CTA should be focusing their time on and the value they can add. Finally, we hear more about the Data Innovation Forums that Odaseva runs and what they are hoping to deliver in the event later this year.

    We hope you enjoy the episode.
