K2View Raises $28 Million to Accelerate Rapid Expansion in the DataOps Market
K2View, a leading provider of real-time DataOps solutions, today announced its $28 million funding round, which will accelerate the company’s growth and expansion in the emerging DataOps market.
Forestay Capital led the round along with funding from Genesis Partners. It comes on the heels of rapid growth that saw over 75 percent CAGR in revenue, with a strong first half of 2020. This investment will be used to support the company’s go-to-market strategy as it continues its expansion in markets ripe for transformation with DataOps, such as telecom, financial services, healthcare, insurance, logistics and more.
“The fastest method to achieve true agility and exceptional customer experience is moving away from 30-plus years of application-driven enterprise into the data-driven enterprise. This is a critical component for digital transformation and a massive opportunity for us,” said Achi Rotem, CEO and co-founder of K2View. “As we look to the next stage of our growth, our vision is to continue helping companies unlock their potential by providing a faster, better and more cost-effective way to access and control data. To achieve funding of this size in the midst of a worldwide pandemic further proves our business potential. Forestay Capital and Genesis Partners share our vision for the future and are natural partners in helping us accelerate our growth.”
Data, an enterprise’s biggest asset, is siloed in hundreds of different applications and stored in different locations, technologies and structures. In this IT environment, enterprises cannot move fast and provide good customer experience at the same time. K2View’s patented approach and unique architecture deliver the data that enterprises need, exactly how and when they need it —all in real time. Since the launch of its platform in 2015, K2View has proven its vision and technology while helping some of the world’s largest companies tackle complex data challenges.
The platform provides the right data to the right person at the right time in just milliseconds and enables enterprises to operationalize all of their data and get holistic access to what matters the most to their business, while reducing time-to-market from months to weeks.
Changing economic conditions create even greater pressure for IT teams to do more with substantially fewer resources. K2View places efficient, elegant solutions into the hands of its users, delivering in weeks what would take months or years with traditional data management techniques. This helps companies reduce costs substantially while accelerating innovation with challenging use cases such as test data management, customer data hubs and compliance with data privacy regulations.
“As companies undergo digital transformation to adapt to a changing global economy and regulatory environment, K2View’s disruptive technology is transforming the use of data to accelerate business innovation,” said Frederic Wohlwend, Managing Partner at Forestay Capital. “We’re thrilled to partner with this talented and visionary team in their next growth journey and scale the business across the globe to help organizations tackle their most complex data challenges.”
“K2View’s patented solution helps enterprises quickly and cost-effectively achieve a 360-degree, real-time view of data—a challenge that has held back the innovation of enterprise IT,” said Gary Gannot, Managing Partner at Genesis Partners. “The DataOps market has unlimited opportunity and growth potential, and K2View is poised to strengthen its position of leadership as it supports the next wave of market expansion.”
K2View is a leading provider of advanced data fabric, data integration, and data delivery software that takes the promise of a 360-degree view of data to the next level. Its flagship solution, K2View Fabric, uses patented logical unit technology to enable quick, easy, and secure access and control to all of an organization’s data, no matter how many different systems and data sources it may have.
