Latest news about Platfora


2015. Big Data analytics platform Platfora scores $30M



Platfora, a company that helps customers process and make sense of big data, announced a $30 million investment today. Platfora has been designed to work with big data (petabyte or larger) on a variety of platforms including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Hadoop. It helps business analysts make sense of a variety of data sets without the help of data scientists or IT. At a basic level Platfora does three things: it prepares the data for analysis. It then processes the data in an in-memory database and perhaps most importantly it provides a visualization layer for business analysts and others to view the data in meaningful ways. Once IT has set up the platform, users can get to work exploring. The data prep and processing happens in the background as the analyst points to different sources to build a set of data they wish to work with. Once that process is complete, they can view the data in various ways in charts and graphs as you would expect.
