The 10 Coolest Big Data Startups Of 2013 (So Far)


SiSense

SiSense, a startup developer of big data analytics software, has had a big year in 2013. In addition to locking down $10 million in its second round of funding, the Redwood City, Calif.-based company has seen its subscription revenue rise a whopping 520 percent over the past 12 months.

"Right now we have more business than we can handle," SiSense CEO Amit Bendov told CRN in April.

SiSense positions its software, called SiSense Prism, as an alternative to traditional business analytics tools. Through its use of advanced visualization capabilities and SiSense's homegrown ElastiCube analytical database, Prism is designed to bring sophisticated, data scientist-class analytics to everyday workers.

About 25 percent of SiSense's sales already go through the channel, Bendov said.
