Attunity CEO Aki Ratner shares his vision of the future in operational business intelligence with DM Review Editorial Director Jim Ericson.

Aki Ratner did not arrive at his current position via the usual Ivy League education and executive career path. Until a decade ago, the man who today is CEO of data integration software provider Attunity was busy flying planes - for the Israeli Air Force. Fortunately for all involved, Israel's military provides parallel career tracks for its pilots - and Ratner chose technology. "I graduated from the university, and for the next 20 years I was involved in both software development or management  and flying. It was really a lot of fun." After leaving the military in 1997, Ratner became president of Precise Software Solutions, a small database performance software provider that soon went public and was sold to VERITAS in 2002 for more than $600 million. Just a year ago, Ratner joined Attunity, a more mature company - which has been publicly traded since 1992 - and set about building his vision. In December 2005, that goal was reached with the release of Attunity InFocus, a software product that is meant to address user-defined business topics. DM Review spoke with Aki Ratner around the time of the InFocus release.
