About Us

StreamSets software delivers performance management for dataflows that feed the next generation of big data applications. Its mission is to bring operational excellence to the management of data in motion, so that data continually arrives on-time and with quality, empowering business-critical analysis and decision-making.

Our Story

StreamSets was founded in 2014, by Girish Pancha, former chief product officer of Informatica, and Arvind Prabhakar, an early employee and engineering leader at Cloudera. They formed the company to address the growing challenge of managing data in motion in a world marked by constant change — to data sources, to data processing infrastructure and to the data itself, a problem called data drift. StreamSets was created to re-envision the management of data flows from the ground up, avoiding the pitfalls of legacy offerings and enabling a new way to manage data in motion.

Our first product, StreamSets Data Collector, is used by hundreds of companies to build complex any-to-any dataflows, including Fortune 500 firms across a variety of industries such as financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, media, pharmaceuticals and technology.  

Our latest product, StreamSets Dataflow Performance Manager, or DPM, takes on the challenge of operating end-to-end dataflows. DPM is an operational control center that lets you map, measure and master your data in motion. First, it maps your diverse dataflows into topologies that support each of your key business processes. Then it measures the day-to-day operations of these topologies, and finally lets you master their performance by implementing service level agreements that ensure you are always delivering timely and trustworthy data.

StreamSets has offices in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Barcelona and is backed by top-tier Silicon Valley venture capital firms, including Accel Partners, Battery Ventures, Ignition Partners and New Enterprise Associates (NEA). Our industry-leading partners include Cloudera, Databricks, MapR and Microsoft.

Latest Press Coverage


  • Fortune


    "Despite our own desire to get more done and hit every deadline, management consistently reminds us to take care of ourselves, and our families—to go home and take time off to have fun. They do their best to create a fun environment at the office, with regular gatherings and celebrations. Our families are encouraged to join in, too, so we are one happy family. Most companies give lip service to work-life balance, but our leaders mean it."

    "Origins in StreamSets Data Collector represent the source of data for a pipeline. Learn how to create a custom StreamSets origin that can support parallel execution."

  • DZone


    "A recent StreamSets user community survey provides key findings on the prevalence of streaming data and mix of traditional and Big Data applications."

  • Datanami


    " Real-time recommendations to coaches are simply one more step in what is a continually competitive sports landscape. In the same way that use of analytics on historical data expanded the basis of competition into the group of emerging analytics believers, real-time analysis will create a new basis for competition for whoever can formulate the best algorithms and machine-learning techniques to populate the best play options on the iPad."


  • CRN


    "StreamSets is another company that is tackling the challenges of managing data in motion. More specifically, the startup develops software to guard against the insidious problem of "data drift" – the unpredictable mutations that data can undergo at the source and create problems when applications use that data."
