Neo4j provides the Neo4j Graph Platform including the Neo4j graph database, an ACID-compliant system with native graph storage and processing. (Graph databases treat the relationships between data as equally important as the data itself.) Other offerings include the Cypher graph query language, ETL and data integration tools, and its Neo4j Bloom data visualization software.

Neo4j raised $80 million in a Series E round of funding in November.

Octopai has developed an automated, centralized, cross-platform metadata management and data lineage search engine that business intelligence organizations use to quickly discover and govern shared metadata.

Octopai really began showing up on people's radar screens in 2018 due, in part, to the company being named one of 10 cloud-based startups to participate in Microsoft's ScaleUp 2018, a four-month program that provides promising startups with tools, resources, connections, knowledge and expertise to accelerate their growth.


Top Executive: CEO Prakash Nanduri

Paxata markets self-service data integration and data preparation software that's designed to help data consumers and business analysts prepare data for analytical tasks with less reliance on programmers and data scientists.

The spring release of the company's Adaptive Information Platform included Intelligent Automation, a smart algorithmic capability that business analysts use to automate and operationalize complex data preparation projects and flows.
