Top Executive: CEO Prat Moghe
Cazena's Big Data-as-a-Service moves data processing tasks to the cloud with just a few clicks, automating what is generally a long, complex process. Cazena bundles cloud databases, analytics engines, data movers, security and other tools into a big data Platform-as-a-Service offering that runs on Microsoft Azure and AWS.
The vendor also provides data lake and datamart cloud services, and in February the company debuted its Data Science Sandbox cloud service for building, testing and running data science analytical applications.
Founded in 2014 and based in Waltham, Mass., Cazena 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.
