“This is a significant step towards implementing SQream’s vision to provide our customers with the fastest data analytics platform in the industry, at any scale of data for multi size enterprises, and in any environment - Cloud, On Prem and On the Edge,” said Ami Gal, Co-founder and CEO of SQream. “With Panoply’s acquisition, we are combining SQream, GPU-powered, cutting edge technology with Panpoply’s phenomenal ease of use and seamless integration and onboarding. This is a huge milestone on our journey to provide the world with the new category of analytics platform that is ready for tomorrow’s data challenges. I’m excited to welcome Yaniv and the Panoply team to SQream’s family, as we join forces to forge a world class data analytics talent powerhouse. I am confident that the synergy between the two companies, the technologies, the founders and the teams, will yield great value to our customers as well as professional and personal development opportunities for Panoply and SQream teams.”
Yaniv Leven, Co-founder and CEO of Panoply said: “Since our inception we’ve taken a different approach to cloud analytics. We’ve made it our mission to transform the focus of cloud architecture from data centric to information centric, by focusing on the insights you can gain from your data, rather than just the technical process of moving and storing it. SQream’s focus on driving fast data insights echoes this mission.”
