About Ashwin Rajeeva:

Ashwin is the CTO and Co-Founder at Acceldata. He is a seasoned technology leader with 15+ years of experience as a developer, consultant and architect for data intensive software systems. Prior to founding Acceldata, Ashwin was a Software Architect at Hortonworks where he led the development of DataPlane hybrid cloud data services. It was here that he met Rohit Choudhary (Co-Founder and CEO, Acceldata) and both were inspired to start Acceldata to address the problem of multi-million dollar data initiatives failing due to the lack of a holistic view of data processing, data, and data pipelines across the enterprise.

About Acceldata:

Acceldata has created the world’s first Multidimensional Data Observability Cloud, helping data-driven enterprises achieve operational excellence, innovation agility, and higher returns on data investment.

Modern enterprises increasingly rely on embedded analytics and AI systems to power their business operations and decisions. Building, operating, and optimizing these systems, however, can be overwhelming.

Traditional monitoring tools, while effective for web applications and microservices, don’t provide sufficient insight into distributed data, processing, and pipelines.

Acceldata’s data observability tools use purpose-built analytics and monitoring to optimize embedded AI and analytics workloads.

Customers like GE Digital, PhonePe (Walmart), Pubmatic, Pratt & Whitney, DBS Bank, and Oracle depend on Acceldata to decrease data pipeline costs by over 20%, while improving reliability by more than 95%. Finance and business teams love the 15+% increase in return on data investments.

Acceldata is now building the industry’s first Data Observability Cloud for hybrid data lakes and cloud data warehouses. Acceldata’s Data Observability Cloud provides on-demand operational intelligence to support embedded AI and analytics data workloads. With Acceldata, enterprises can easily scale pipelines to meet the needs of modern business, regardless of platform or cloud environment.
