Top Executive: CEO Prat Moghe
Startup Cazena's big data as a service moves data processing tasks to the cloud with just a few clicks, automating what traditionally is a long, complex process. The vendor's data lake as a service and DataMart as a service can provision and optimize cloud infrastructure and big data technologies such as Hadoop, MPP SQL and Spark.
Founded in 2014 and based in Waltham, Mass., Cazena exited stealth in July 2015. The company has attracted attention – and financing – because CEO Prat Moghe and board members Jit Saxena and Jim Baum were among the founders of Netezza, a pioneering developer of data warehouse appliances that IBM bought in 2010 for $1.7 billion.
