Enterprises such as American Express, Aetna, Comcast, and Quotient join the BI on Hadoop leader’s fast-expanding customer list
San Mateo, California, February 29, 2016 — AtScale, the first company to provide business users with speed, security and simplicity for BI on Hadoop, announced today that it grew revenue by five-fold in 2015.
“AtScale’s progress marks an important milestone for the BI on Hadoop industry” says Sunil Bopardikar, Senior Vice President of Technology at Quotient Technology Inc. (NYSE: QUOT), formerly Coupons.com Incorporated. “Most enterprises are seeking a solution to this problem and AtScale’s ascension is the proof that they’ve hit a nerve: allowing users to self-serve to Big Data easily, in the tools they already know, while adhering to stringent enterprise governance standards, in one of the most important steps this industry has seen since its inception”.
AtScale is the only company to provide a BI-on-Hadoop software solution that integrates natively with Business Intelligence tools, requires no data movement and works with most SQL on Hadoop engines from Spark, to Hive, to Impala.

The AtScale Way: A Plug-and-Play Model
Beyond surpassing its 2015 goals, AtScale also announced partnerships with major Business Intelligence vendors making the transition to this new data era as easy as possible. AtScale supports most Business Intelligence tools from Tableau to Microsoft Excel, both via SQL and MDX. It does so without requiring any additional client downloads or server agents.
Jerry Yang, founding partner AME Cloud Ventures, Yahoo! Co-founder and investor in AtScale explains: “AtScale is taking off because its solution gives enterprises a plug-and-play model for their existing BI tools and data platforms in Hadoop, on-premise and in the cloud. AtScale achieved product market fit quickly because it is solving a challenging BI problem that every enterprise, whatever their stack, is facing today or in the near future.”
The company’s success is a testament to its founders’ vision and experience. Dave Mariani, AtScale CEO and co-founder, ran Big Data at Yahoo! and Klout. His team managed a 200+ node Cloudera cluster and connected a trillion row Hive data warehouse to hundreds of Tableau, Excel and MicroStrategy users: “We didn’t build this company on a hunch” he says, “We experienced the pain at a large scale. The market badly needed a better answer.”
Since the company launched in 2013, the team has been focused on building an enterprise-grade solution that exhibits superior architecture and sits on key patent-pending assets. At present, the AtScale Intelligence Platform latest version has only been available for purchase for a little over a quarter. The product’s fast market adoption makes AtScale one of the fastest growing technology companies in its space.
A Tipping Point for Enterprise Data
AtScale’s rapid ascension across a wide array of industries from healthcare, to telecommunications, to retail and financial services points to larger trend impacting the Big Data and Analytics market, which IDC valued at $122B in 2015:
AtScale’s value proposition sits at the intersection of a growing need for insights and the changing database market.
“Up until now, the way enterprises connected current visualization tools to this changing and heterogeneous data ecosystem, was to build new BI stacks or move data around. Each reduced agility, increased cost and engendered user’s dissatisfaction” said Mariani. “In 2015, we showed that there is a new way to marry the old with the new: it’s the AtScale Way.”
