The Upstart 100 list features the best and brightest rising companies across a variety of sectors, including fintech, health tech, cybersecurity, retail, and more.
Unravel Data believes in the promise of big data and strives every day to solve big data’s biggest challenges.

This allows Fortune 1000 and web scale companies to transform their business models and release innovative new applications such as autonomous vehicles, personalized ecommerce and fraud prevention with confidence.

CNBC’s Upstart 100 recognition follows Unravel’s recent designation by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in its report, “Cool Vendors in Performance Analysis; Analytics and Containers.” Earlier this year, Unravel announced its partnership with Microsoft Azure, which improves reliability, productivity and reduces costs for big data workloads in the cloud.
