How we got started

In the fall of 2014, three former Thomson Reuters and Cloudera engineers made a bet that ‘data platforms’ and ‘cloud’ were more than lab projects, but rather pivotal shifts in the way software solved business problems. With the experiences and successes they had at two leading software companies, they embarked on a journey to help enterprises operate and successfully develop software on distributed data platforms and cloud. On this journey, they worked to build a culture where employees are empowered to ask questions, take risks, and give back to our communities.

What We Do

phData at its core has always been centered on customer success via sustainable data engineering principals. phData’s Managed Service was born from the customer’s need to have world-class talent supporting the platform 24/7. Successful projects simply can’t exist if the foundation is not strong.phData’s Solution Architects, Machine Learning Engineers and Data Engineers have created standards for solving problems on the platform, getting applications to production, and providing 24/7 DataOps. Not on just any applications, but on real-time data pipelines, business logic transformations, IoT connectivity, and machine learning models.
