We believe data can make the world a better place.

If we can understand behaviors and interactions as they happen, we can make products, business and experiences better for all.

BitYota was founded in late 2011 on the guiding principle that data is a critical asset for all companies. Today we need to identify problems as they happen to make critical business decisions frequently and quickly, driven by data.

We are data geeks by nature. We have over 35 years of Big Data experience at Yahoo!, Oracle, Informix, Veritas/Symantec, BMC, Tibco, Twitter and Salesforce.

Our vision is to make data and analytics accessible to all. There’s a revolution underway and we’re taking sides. We want to create a data platform that enables everyone – from data scientists and engineers to SQL savvy analysts, business and product users, to understand their data, to build better products/services, and create new avenues of growth and productivity. Ultimately, we want us all to live in a better world.
