EdgeSpring, a visual analytics and business intelligence provider, has announced the general availability of its BI and analytics platform, designed to allow users to draw business insights from data of any size or structure without dependence on analysts or IT specialists. The company has raised $11 million in series A financing from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) and Lightspeed Ventures.
By asking and answering first and second order questions across structured and semi-structured data, the EdgeSpring platform enables users to make better business decisions easily and quickly. “We make the entirety of the data across multiple silos in a way that an end user is able to ask second and third order questions without pre-anticipation. The data is available in a way that’s highly-visualized and animated, so that users can ask second order questions quite easily,” Sarvesh Jagannivas, EdgeSpring VP of marketing, tells 5 Minute Briefing.
At the core of the EdgeSpring platform is the EdgeMart data store. This tool combines three key innovations: massive compression for scalability and portability, a search-bsed approach for free-form discovery, and a schema-free representation for greater flexibility and adaptability to change. EdgeSpring developed CrunchEdge, publicly available in June, to showcase the power of its platform. This feature allows users to explore Crunchbase, a crowd-sourced data set of venture investments and startup company information.
