Marie-Ann Neimat
Co-Founder, Oracle Times Ten

Marie-Anne Neimat joined The Angels’ Forum as an Investor-in-Residence after retiring from Oracle Corporation. Her last position was Vice President of Development for three database products: Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database, Oracle Berkeley Database, and Oracle NoSQL Database.

She was also co-founder, Vice President of Engineering, and Board Member of TimesTen Inc., which was acquired by Oracle in 2005.

Prior to starting her own company she had been at HP Labs and managed several research projects including an object-oriented database (IRIS, which later became the OpenODB product), an extensible database, and an in-memory database.

Marie-Anne was awarded her PhD in Computer Science from UC Berkeley and has a BSC in Mathematics from Stanford University. She holds several patents, is a popular technical conference presenter, and the author of many publications in refereed conferences and journals.

 The ubiquity of smart devices is heralding a new era of fast data where the value of applications lies in the ability to sense and respond to Internet-scale data in real time. However, it is also challenging databases to cost-effectively and reliably deliver speed at scale.
