About Us

Varada was founded to solve one of the biggest pain points in the big data analytics ecosystem: the compromise between time to market and time to insight. The ROI of enterprise data today is dramatically reduced due to the resources spent on data preparation, modeling and maintenance.

Every single day, data teams have to balance between performance, scalability, time to market and cost. As the data grows, these trade-offs hinder business agility, cause frustration and expand the IT backlog.

Our vision is to bring agility to any data-driven business and enable ad-hoc, interactive analytics on any data dimensionality, schema and size.
