Paxata, co-founded by Nenshad Bardoliwalla, turns raw data into trustworthy information at the speed of thought. Paxata’s Adaptive Information Platform enables business analysts with an enterprise-grade, self-service data preparation system to support the on-demand and ad-hoc business data needs for analytics, operations and regulatory requirements. Business analysts work within an intuitive, visual application to access, explore, shape, collaborate and publish data with clicks, not code, with complete governance and security. IT is able to support the scale of data volumes and variety, enterprise and cloud data sources, and business scenarios for immediate and repeatable data service needs. Built on Apache Spark and optimized to run in Apache Hadoop, Paxata leverages automated artificial intelligence, elastic cloud architecture and distributed computing to deliver an immersive business consumer experience that automates the data-to-insight pipeline. The platform can be deployed both on-premises and in public, private or hybrid cloud environments.
