MENLO PARK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- Peter Relan, ex-Oracle executive and founder of Studio 9+ accelerator today announced that OneFold has completed its seed round of $400,000 in funding from Studio 9+ and a pool of angel investors. Majority of the angel investment came from the Studio 9+ Syndicate on AngelList. OneFold, a mobile and wearable data focused analytics and visualization platform expects to use the seed funding to build out its product.
Cloud-Based DHQL Platform
OneFold is focused on analyzing data generated by mobile usage and wearables. OneFold uses a new architecture based on its proprietary cloud-based "DHQL" platform. It leverages recent inflections in the price of storage and massively parallel cloud computing to deliver deep analytical insights to organizations publishing mobile, mWeb, and wearable apps. The DHQL platform is a complete re-architecture of the analytics technology stack from data extraction to visualization. It requires no IT resources from organizations deploying it and no data scientist resources to deliver actionable insights to product, revenue and marketing managers.
"OneFold has developed a unique approach to transform, analyze and visualize the enormous amount of data coming from mobile and wearables," said Jerry Held, OneFold advisor and former Chairman of big data company Vertica (acquired by HP for $280MM).
Benefits of OneFold's Technology: Democratizing Analytics
OneFold's mission is to empower end users of analytics information in mobile and wearable companies. These managers are looking to optimize engagement and monetization in a market that is expected to capture $200B in revenues through in-app purchases and m-commerce by 2017. The company is currently in private beta with several such mobile-enabled organizations.
"Organizations with mobile apps, m-commerce or wearable apps are struggling with enormous volumes of data being generated for entirely new types of user behaviors compared to behaviors seen on the web or the desktop," said Peter Relan, Chairman of OneFold. "Analytical insight has so far required expensive tools and data scientists to mine the terabytes to exabytes of generated data. OneFold empowers mobile product executives to directly get 80 percent of the insights they need instantly through an insanely intuitive user interface while efficiently utilizing their valuable data scientists for the very complex 20 percent of insights that cannot be answered in real time."
"Having managed mobile product development at Intuit and TeleNav, I saw the gap between the analytical insights needed by product executives and the actual insights delivered by tools today, even with the help of expensive data scientists," said Navneet Aron, Stanford graduate and OneFold Co-Founder. "We've reimagined the problem in the context of 10x lower storage costs and cloud computing costs in 2013 and created our DHQL platform for this new cycle of mobile and wearable computing."
"Mobile and mWeb app publishers want direct and timely access to deep behavior insights of their users in attempt to boost app engagement and conversions. We have validated this with dozens of mobile-enabled organizations; several of which are now in our private beta," said Oracle alumnus Uday Sandhar, OneFold Co-Founder and Business Head.
OneFold is focused on Big Data generated by Mobile and Wearables. OneFold eliminates the burden on data scientists for 80% of analytical insights needed by Product Managers and Marketing organizations to optimize Mobile App revenues (projected to reach $200B yearly run rate by 2017 in m-commerce, travel, financial & gaming verticals). Companies in the big data space, but focused on other aspects of big data analytics are: Databricks (Funded by A16Z), Trifacta (funded by Greylock, Accel Partners), and ClearStory Data (funded by KPCB, Google Ventures, A16Z), and Origami (funded by Accel, Lightspeed and Jafco Partners).
Based in Menlo Park, California, OneFold is founded by engineer entrepreneurs from Oracle and Intuit, with 20+ years experience building and growing mobile and enterprise software products in small and large Silicon Valley companies. OneFold has been accelerated at Studio 9+ accelerator (www.studio9plus.com). Learn more at www.OneFold.io
OneFold has completed its seed round, and is not soliciting any funding. This press release is not an offer to purchase, a solicitation of an offer to purchase or an offer to sell securities.

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...

After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists l...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
