The Birth of CloudData

It would be an understatement to say that we love Data Integration. However, it is useful to understand what brought us here. The old adage that 'Necessity is the the Mother of Invention' holds true with our story.

The seed for CloudData was planted a few years ago when 2 distinct events occurred. One was the receipt of a credit card offer, that clearly demonstrated 'no knowledge' of the target customer. And the other, was a data integration problem that could not be solved using a relational database platform (due to lack of a Physical Enterprise Data Model). These events set us on a path to build a data integration hub in the Cloud. Our drive is fueled by a passion to eliminate 'Data Silos' within every organization that we are honored to work with. The Hub lays the foundation for a single source of the data truth - high-quality standardized enterprise data delivery. With this enablement, Analytics, Machine Learning and AI initiatives become meaningful.
