AtScale develops a solution to the problem of getting data, analysis and insight out of Hadoop. The company, founded in 2013 and based in San Mateo, Calif., exited stealth in April and raised $7 million in Series A financing in June.
The startup's AtScale Intelligence Platform allows commonly used business intelligence tools, including Tableau and QlikView, to access data stored in Hadoop clusters. The technology creates a semantic layer between Hadoop and third-party BI tools, essentially turning Hadoop into an OLAP (online analytical processing) server that can be tapped for multidimensional analysis.
