Brad Coulon – Founder, CTO

Brad founded On Demand Analysis (ODA), from which SIFT is a spin out, in 1997 with a vision to deliver software solutions where analytics was not an after-thought; it was the intent of the system.  He’d lived through the world of traditional business intelligence tools that business users could not use themselves. At ODA, Brad designed SIFT and then worked closely with customers to enhance and refine the platform over several years.  As CTO, Brad directs the continued evolution of the SIFT platform and works closely with customers to ensure their success.  Brad graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Economics.
