Raymond Paul "Raymie" Stata is an American computer engineer and business executive.
After finishing his Ph.D., Stata worked for Digital Equipment Corporation's Systems Research Center, where he contributed to the AltaVista search engine. He was an assistant professor of Computer Science at the Baskin School of Engineering at UC Santa Cruz, and collaborated with the Internet Archive.
Stata Labs was acquired by Yahoo! in 2004, for an undisclosed amount. Stata continued working for Yahoo!, and in 2010, became the company's chief technology officer, a position he held until he left the company in 2012. With Yahoo!, Stata co-developed a composition model for cloud-hosted serving applications, for which he was granted a patent. Stata was also involved early in Apache Hadoop, consulting with and eventually hiring its founders Doug Cutting and Mike Cafarella at Yahoo!.
After leaving Yahoo! in 2012, Stata founded Altiscale, a company that provided Apache Hadoop-as-a-service marketed as "big data in the cloud". Altiscale was named a Cool Vendor in Big Data by Gartner for 2015. Stata served as Altiscale's CEO until 2016, when the company was acquired by the software company SAP for more than $125 million. Following SAP's acquisition, Stata's title with the company became Senior Vice President of Big Data Services.
Since 2018, Stata has served as product and technology advisor for Aqfer, an enterprise software company developing data marketing tools. Stata also serves on the board for technology companies Vanu and Gamalon.
Stata is on the Advisory Council for QuakeFinder, a research and development group focusing on earthquake prediction. Until 2018, he served on the board of trustees for the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
