Dataform Takes up $2 Million for Building Operating System for Data Warehouses

The U.K. Company, Dataform, initiated by ex-Googlers has taken up $2 million in funding. They require making it easier to manage the data warehouses for their businesses. LocalGlobe is leading the round with participation from various angel investors that are unnamed.

Founded by Lewis Hemens and Guillaume-Henri Huon, the former employees of Google, Dataform has set out for helping the data-rich companies to get insights from the information saved in their data warehouses. To mine data for the business intelligence and insights typically needs a team of data which include engineers and analysts.

Moreover, Dataform wishes to simplify the given task and also, in turn, make it quicker as well as cheaper for the organizations for taking full advantage of the data assets that they have.

“Businesses are generating more and more data than they now centralize into cloud data warehouses like Google BigQuery, AWS Redshift or Snowflake. However, to exploit this data, like conducting analytics or using BI tools, they need to convert the vast amount of raw data into a list of clean, reliable and up-to-date datasets,” stated co-founder Guillaume-Henri Huon, Dataform.

“Data teams do not have the right tools for managing data in the warehouse efficiently. As a result, hence, they have to spend most of the time building custom infrastructure and to make sure their data pipelines work”. Dataform can solve this by offering an entire toolkit for managing data in their data warehouses, says Huon.

Data teams may generate new datasets and then set them for updation every day automatically and frequently. According to Dataform, the seed funding will allow their company grow constantly with its sales along with the engineering teams. Moreover, it will also be utilized in developing its product further.
