Timothy Leonard, executive vice president, operations and technology for TMW Systems, was recognized as 2017 “Data Visionary” in the Americas Data Heroes Awards program sponsored by Hortonworks.
The award was presented in San Jose, CA, in conjunction with the DataWorks Summit/Hadoop Summit, an annual technology conference focused on big data best practices.
According to the company, Leonard was selected for the award based in part on TMW’s leadership in the development of advanced business analytics and big data solutions that help drive actionable intelligence for commercial and private fleets, third-party logistics providers, freight brokers and other transportation enterprises. TMW in 2016 introduced the TMW Reveal Series, a cloud-based business intelligence and data analytics platform that enables users to leverage big data through advanced, transportation-specific data models and visualization tools. The solution, which supports data from leading transportation management systems, mobile communications platforms, asset maintenance solutions and other sources, enables users to enhance their predictive capabilities by unlocking answers deeply embedded within operational data and historical trends.
Leonard also has authored several white papers and presentations documenting opportunities for transportation businesses to use information technology to solve competitive challenges, the company noted.
“Under Tim’s leadership, our BI team is helping carriers, 3PLs and other customers revolutionize their use of data in assessing business performance and identifying emerging opportunities,” said David Wangler, president of TMW Systems. “We are pleased and very proud that his achievements have been recognized by such a distinguished community of technology professionals.”
