Big Data has never been more relevant or important to businesses, but data engineering is time-consuming and often impossible without the right tools.
Astronomer’s cloud-based platform provides a solution ‘Organizations spend an overwhelming amount of time trying to get the right data to the right places to gain valuable insights,’ said Ry Walker, co-founder and CEO of Astronomer. ‘Astronomer helps them to get the data they need by connecting any data source to any database or data warehouse, securely and in real time. We are enabling organizations to unlock a deeper understanding of their business and leverage advanced business intelligence. ”
Astronomer was founded by veteran technology entrepreneurs and employs a 20-year-old team in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is a graduate of AngelPad, a San Francisco-based seed stage accelerator ranked #1 U.S. MIT accelerator.
‘The Astronomer team has worked hard to build a product in an area of emerging complexity and need for everyone,’ said Mike Venerable, Managing Director of CincyTech. ‘As data sources and uses expand exponentially over the next decade, managing the flow of data from sensors and systems to platforms that use and exploit that data will become a core element of the world. They’re right in the thick of the problem, and they’re building a product built on the real needs of the customer, not imagined needs. This is a big challenge, a big market, and a big opportunity. ”
‘Astronomer has the potential to be the primary data platform of the future, and the momentum of business today is remarkable,’ said Mathew Johnson, Partner at 500 Startups.
Astronomer customers include Fortune 500 companies and a growing list of companies including Everything But The House (EBTH), Crossroads Church, LPK and Empower MediaMarketing.
The investment will allow Astronomer to continue to expand its platform and to recruit locally and nationally world-class data scientists and engineers.
