Top Executive: Co-Founder and CEO Prakash Nanduri
Paxata develops "self-service adaptive data preparation" software that simplifies the often tedious work of transforming raw data so that it can be analyzed with business analytics tools. The company positions itself as an alternative to the traditional approach of relying on data warehouse systems built and maintained by IT.
Redwood City, Calif.-based Paxata was founded in 2012. In March, the company struck an alliance with government IT solutions provider Carahsoft Technology Corp. through which Carahsoft will bring the Paxata Adaptive Data Preparation platform to government agencies.
