SAN FRANCISCO — August 18, 2016 — StreamSets, the company that delivers performance management for data flows, today announced that it has been named to Startup50’s Big 50-2016 report, Jeff Vance’s annual roundup of the 50 top tech startups to watch in the coming year.

StreamSets provides software that helps enterprises build and manage “any-to-any” big data flows to drive next-generation analytics, applications and products while combating data drift. Data drift is a problem unique to big data caused by unexpected changes at the source to data’s structure and semantics. When data drift goes undetected, it pollutes downstream analysis, leading to false insights and improper actions and business decisions.
StreamSets Data Collector™ is open source software that helps companies easily ingest data from a variety of sources, and then filter, sanitize and route the data to a variety of storage/compute platforms, including Hadoop, NoSQL databases and enterprise search engines. As DevOps-friendly infrastructure, it offers both a drag-and-drop interface for the design, testing and deployment of data pipelines as well as a continuous execution mode complete with real-time KPI’s and rule-based alerts for both data flow and data fidelity metrics. Since its launch in September 2015, StreamSets software has been adopted by hundreds of enterprises across a wide range of industries.
Hundreds of startups entered Startup50’s rigorous vetting process, where they were evaluated by a panel of experts and voted on by readers to determine the top 50 that represent the technologies, market sectors, and trends that will challenge the status quo. StreamSets was chosen in part because of the strength and experience of its founding team — CEO Girish Pancha served as chief product officer of Informatica, and CTO Arvind Prabhakar was an early employee and engineering leader at Cloudera.
“It is an honor to be named a Startup50 top tech startup to watch this year,” said Girish Pancha, CEO, StreamSets. “As enterprises move to harness real-time insights from IoT, clickstream and other emergent big data sources, they need to continually ensure the completeness and integrity of the data flowing into their analytic applications. StreamSets Data Collector makes it easy to design, run and maintain any-to-any data pipelines with control and confidence, and this award highlights the demand for this type of technology in the industry.”
“I won’t be at all surprised if several of the startups in this report are household names in the coming years,” said Jeff Vance, founder and editor-in-chief of Startup50. “This is a really strong lineup, with startups tackling everything from artificial intelligence to water treatment to cyber-security and Big Data.”
