Chartio Closes $2.2 Million in Additional Funding From Avalon Ventures to Provide Powerful Cloud Business Intelligence

Launches Powerful New Capabilities and Chartio Services Alongside Funding to Help Customers Get the Most Out of Data

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Today Chartio is happy to announce $2.2 million in additional funding from Avalon Ventures to accelerate growth towards profitability and deliver the most powerful and flexible solution in the cloud business intelligence space. In 2011 Chartio raised $4.4 million in a Series A round led by Avalon Ventures to drive the development of the cloud-based business intelligence offering. Since then Chartio has grown 36.4 times over, has quadrupled the number of employees and with customers such as Ancestry.com, Change.org, Indiegogo and Homejoy is fastly becoming the number one choice for cutting-edge cloud business intelligence. The additional funding will go towards hiring, driving forward additional marketing efforts and mobilizing a dedicated services team to make Chartio the number one solution in today's market.

"The data industry is the one to watch in 2014, and we believe Chartio is the most powerful, seamless and easy-to-use solution in cloud business intelligence today," said Rich Levandov, partner at Avalon Ventures. "As enterprises move even more applications to the cloud, we believe Chartio is the solution to bring data into the hands of everyday employees. We are excited to watch Chartio's success in the coming year."

In addition to today's funding news, Chartio is launching powerful new capabilities and Chartio Services to drive faster adoption of the one-of-a-kind technology at companies throughout the world.

Powerful New Capabilities: Data Blending and Custom Formulas

Chartio is excited to announce the ability to blend multiple data sources together without the hassle of ETL. Usually, teams looking to analyze data from multiple sources have to undergo a lengthy setup process, imagining every way their data may be examined and then build a warehouse from that perspective. Chartio now frees customers to begin exploring their data immediately, by providing the ability to connect databases and blend their data in-browser, at the very moment they start to create a visualization. In conjunction with blending data, Chartio is also announcing the ability to execute custom formulas on those results to make complex calculations. Although much more advanced, the process is as simple as using a calculator, revolutionizing BI by removing the costly setup time and infrastructure involved in traditional deployments.

"With the data blending and custom formula features I can now explore data on my terms. If I have a question that involves another data set, I can easily add, make calculations and see a result to chart in seconds," said Nick Ducoff, vice president of content at Boundless. "It is truly extraordinary and exhilarating to see answers to our data questions in seconds. Chartio's innovation in the space is second to none."

Chartio Services

Starting today, Chartio services is available for companies who need additional help in getting the value out of their data. Though Chartio is focused on building an intuitive, self-service tool for everyone in business, we recognize that not all teams have the time and expertise to fully investigate and utilize their data. Chartio services will provide Chartio connection assistance, dashboard creation, advanced query building, architecture consultation, education & training and priority support.

"As a new company, it's important to get it right when it comes to identifying and applying information about the way people are using your product," said Raphael Grignani, CEO and co-founder of Jauntful. "Chartio sat with us as we got our databases connected to the app, talked through our business model to help us figure out important metrics to track and helped us create the actual charts and graphs for our dashboard -- allowing us to make quick, data-driven decisions to improve Jauntful."

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, an IBM company, spoke about the picture being painted by IBM Cloud and how the tools being crafted can help fill the gaps in your IT infrastructure.
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.
