WASHINGTON, DC Jul 20, 2016 — Stardog, an enterprise data unification platform, announced today that the company has closed a $2.3 million round of seed funding led by Core Capital and Boulder Ventures. The funding allows Stardog to strengthen its position as the leading graph-based data unification platform. Stardog uses smart graph technology to efficiently unify heterogeneous, disparate data across the enterprise.
Enterprises continue to experience a massive surge in data, coupled with an ever-increasing number of data sources, types, and structures. However, enterprises cannot truly leverage data without first unifying it. Until Stardog, true data unification was largely limited to structured data and came with costly and burdensome implementation and maintenance requirements.
Stardog’s graph data model approach allows for highly flexible and efficient data unification horizontally across all data sets and types. With Stardog, companies are able to unify data into a coherent graph-based model that allows business logic and data sources to evolve independently. This decoupling lowers IT costs, shortens implementation schedules, and offers better data unification.
“The Stardog team has built a completely unique product to solve the infamous enterprise data silo problem and, as a result, has already attracted an incredible list of customers, representing major names in finance, healthcare, technology, government, and media,” Evan MacQueen of Core Capital.
“The enterprise data landscape gets more complex daily and Stardog’s unique capabilities address that complexity directly and effectively,” Jonathan Perl of Boulder Ventures.
“We’re thrilled to raise a first round funding to fuel our next level of growth. The need for enterprise data unification for the post-relational data landscape couldn’t be clearer” said Kendall Clark, CEO of Stardog. As part of the financing, Evan MacQueen of Core Capital and Jonathan Perl of Boulder Ventures have joined the board of directors.
