Prestigious, Peer-Nominated Pearcey Victorian Entrepreneur Award Recognizes Arcitecta CEO Jason Lohrey's Technology Achievements Inspired by the Arts
BOULDER, Colo. and MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Arcitecta, a creative and innovative data management software company, today announced that its CEO and founder, Jason Lohrey was honored by the Pearcey Foundation with its prestigious 2022 Pearcey Victorian Entrepreneur Award. The award was presented at an event in Melbourne, Australia.

It's unique approach to data management empowers all sizes of organizations and global enterprises to simplify their data-intensive workflows and accelerate time to insight from their data to improve business and research outcomes.
"Arcitecta's original thesis is still relevant today: to harness the power of data to allow us to collaborate, see patterns and to make discoveries. All the buzz about artificial intelligence and machine learning are predicated on one thing: having data and being able to use it effectively," said Lohrey. "I'm humbled by the Pearcey Foundation recognition, appreciative of Arcitecta's extraordinarily talented team, and gratified to lead a successful business that remains focused on a triple bottom line – people, planet and profits."
This honor follows the recognition of Arcitecta's flagship product, Mediaflux, earlier this year as the "Most Complete Solution" and "Best Software Architecture" by the International Data Mover Challenge at Supercomputing Asia 2022.
