Executive Opinion

Billy Bosworth, CEO of Dremio, said, "There is a challenging story before the story when it comes to data warehouses, and that is the process of copying, moving and synchronizing data. Dremio’s technology fundamentally simplifies workflows, allowing analytics directly on your full data set, stored in industry-standard open formats, residing in native cloud storage. We are pleased to have Sapphire Ventures on the investor team to help make that possible."

Anders Ranum, Managing Director at Sapphire Ventures, said, "As enterprises increasingly use cloud storage platforms, such as Amazon Web Services’ S3 and Azure’s ADLS, they’re looking for ways to use that data where it is, and by as many groups as possible in order to make insightful business decisions. We believe that Dremio is well on its way to becoming a category-defining company, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with Billy and the Dremio team on their mission to reimagine the cloud data lake and eliminate the need for data warehouses."
