Asim also managed the wider information systems used by the team and the Americas Cup event including running the IT departments and ensuring they helped achieve business goals.

Asim’s career highlight was the amazing come from behind victory to claim the 34th America’s Cup with Oracle Team USA. His analysis of the data was an important part of making this victory happen.

Asim has now left the America’s Cup industry and joined Oracle Corporation as Director of Strategic Solutions.
