This observability startup is raking in investment by simplifying complex data operations and reducing costs while increasing engineering productivity.   

Observability tools help organizations manage their complex data pipelines by using machine learning to flag data-quality issues and aide capacity planning. Ultimately, they help firms get the full business value of their data while keeping costs under control. 

Even the best data strategies will fail to produce results if the actual management of the data lacks visibility and control.  

To that end, enterprise data observability firm Acceldata just announced $50 million in fresh funding from investors, including Insight Partners. The firm counts massive firms like Oracle and Verisk as customers, as well as Walmart-owned fintech PhonePe, which was able to reduce its data warehouse costs by 65% thanks to Acceldata.

Acceldata provides end-to-end visibility into data quality, processing power, and performance across all data sources, while using machine learning to analyze (and predict) issues.  

Ultimately, its platform delivers “highly reliable monitoring and data quality,” according to Insight Partners managing director George Mathew.  

“These pipelines require validating half a trillion data points at scale in a matter of hours, every day,” he told Insights Distilled. “This is where Acceldata comes in, to provide their leading data observability offering.”
