Utopia, Inc., a global leader in enterprise data lifecycle management (EDLM) solutions, announced today the hiring of David Lepa as their director of Canadian sales. Lepa joins Utopia with a passion for successful deployment of technology by working closely with his customers and aligning people, processes, and technology to drive winning solutions.
Prior to joining Utopia, Lepa was a global sales executive at SAP Canada for 12 years. He worked with large enterprise accounts headquartered in Canada over several industries including; oil and gas, chemical, utilities, transportation, and financial services. Many of Lepa’s customers implemented significant business re-engineering/process improvement programs involving SAP solutions. Throughout his career enterprise data has always been a prevalent topic with his customers. Lepa understands the value of data to an enterprise and how it needs to be managed as a strategic asset. His experience proves valuable as it relates to Utopia’s relationship with SAP® BusinessObjects™ and how Utopia provides data migration, data quality, and data governance solutions and services for SAP® BusinessObjects™ technology.
“Dave has seen firsthand the difference between clients having successful roll outs of business process applications and those that have project stops, restarts, and delayed go-lives. He clearly has seen the effect of ensuring data management is part of all data conversion projects,” said Doug Jones, vice president of sales at Utopia. “The difference between a best run business and those that are not able to optimize their applications or processes are very often based on the negative impacts of poor data management prior to conversion.”
“I’m thrilled to be a business team member for the world’s leader in EDLM solutions,” said Lepa. “I am excited to have the opportunity to work with customers to deliver strategic foundational data consulting services that will lead to successful deployments of technology based business solutions. Utopia’s solutions and services will provide great value to any organization implementing new technology business solutions. As Lepa states, “good quality data is money in the bank.”
