The Big Data community has been waiting in anticipation for Ben Werther’s start-up Platfora to come out of stealth mode and reveal its grand vision since early summer. Well, that day has come and Werther’s vision for Platfora is indeed ambitious.
Platfora today announced it raised $5.7 million in Series A funding led by Anderseen Horowitz, with additional support from In-Q-Tel. In an accompanying blog post, Werther said Platfora has developed a platform to allow business users to interactively explore large data sets stored on Hadoop and create multidimensional, predictive dashboards and reports.
