The big data analytics and visualization company Datameer, Inc. has cause to celebrate, because they have received a huge investment. How happy is Datameer? Datameer’s CEO Stefan Groschupf explains on the company blog in the post, “Time To Celebrate The Next Stage Of Our Journey.”
Datameer received $40 million in a round of financing from ST Telemedia, Top Tier Capital Partners, Next World Capital, Redpoint, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Software AG and Citi Ventures. Groschupf details how Datameer was added to the market in 2009 with the vision to democratize analytics. Since 2009, Datameer has helped solve problems across the globe and is even helping make it a better place. He continues he is humbled by the trust the investors and clients place in Datameer, which feeds into the importance of analytics for not only companies, but also anyone who wants supportable truth.
Datameer has big plans for the funding:
“We’ll be focusing on expanding globally, with an eye toward APAC and Latin America as well as additional investment in our existing teams. I’m looking forward to continuing our growth and building a long-term, sustainable company that consistently provides value to our customers. Our vision has been the same since day one – to make big data analytics easy for everyone. Today, I’m happy to say we’re still where we want to be.”
Datameer was one of the early contenders in big data that always managed to outshine and outperform its bigger name competitors. Despite its record growth, Datameer continues to remain true to its open source roots. The company wants to make analytics available to every industry and everyone. What is incredibly impressive is that Datameer has numerous applications for its products from gaming to healthcare, which is usually unheard of. Congratulations to Datameer!
