As businesses migrate to the cloud, data discovery, cataloguing, and lineage become increasingly important in order to capitalize on the sprawl and mayhem of cloud data systems. Users can gain a better understanding of the most popular and trusted data sets by collecting and analyzing metadata and logs. Select Star offers a unified platform for data discovery and lineage across multiple platforms and clouds, making it a one-of-a-kind solution for the multi-cloud world.
Shinji Kim, the founder and CEO of Select Star, was previously the CEO and founder of Concord Systems (acquired by Akamai Technologies in 2016). She was instrumental in the development of Akamai’s new IoT data platform for real-time messaging, log processing, and edge computing for the automotive, manufacturing, and consumer electronics industries.
According to Businesswire company’s Founder and CEO Shinji Kim comments on this funding round:
“With this new round of funding, we’re excited to continue to invest in our R&D efforts and bring innovative approaches to data management. furthermore, it will allow us to accelerate expanding our business development efforts, helping us to reach new customers and drive growth for our company.”
