Chris Lauren has joined Domino as product vice president from Microsoft, where he led the Azure Machine learning product team.

Kjell Carlsson, PhD, a former Forrester analyst, has joined the company as head of data science strategy - evangelism.

Lauren will lead Domino's product team to further define and execute on the vision and strategy of the Domino Enterprise MLOps Platform to better enable its customers to accelerate their digital transformation using the power of machine learning.

In his new role, Carlsson will advise Domino customers and prospects on their AI transformation strategies, providing strategic counsel on how enterprises can unleash the business value of data science at scale.

He will also play an important role in driving awareness of Domino's market-leading capabilities and work closely with Lauren's product team on strategy and development.

"Chris and Kjell have broad industry knowledge that will be an incredible asset to our team and our customers," Domino Data Lab CEO and co-founder Nick Elprin says.

"Chris is an expert in cloud computing and machine learning with decades of experience delivering products for enterprise customers.

"And Kjell has had the privilege of advising hundreds of organisations across industries as they progress through their data science and machine learning maturity.

"That breadth of experience makes him a perfect fit to evangelise our mission to unleash data science. I am thrilled to have them on board," Elprin adds.

"While helping many enterprises adopt machine learning at scale, I've seen MLOps' critical role in accelerating model velocity to increase business impact," Lauren says.

"Domino is the only MLOps platform that meets the needs of the most demanding enterprise workloads in an open and flexible way.

"I hope to establish Domino as the market leading Enterprise MLOps platform for every cloud and on-premises environment, and build on our successes supporting customers in key regulated industries like healthcare, insurance and financial services," Lauren adds.

"Domino is the only company that truly stands up for the modern professional data scientist and is far and away the best choice for enabling enterprises to scale and drive impact with their data science teams across the organisation," Carlsson says.

"It is a privilege to work with such great enterprises that are thoroughly transforming themselves and implementing the latest machine learning innovations using Domino's enterprise MLOps platform."
