Revefi – a zero-touch platform to monitor and manage data quality, performance, and costs – announced today that it has raised $10.5 million in seed funding. And Revefi is disrupting the data observability space with the Revefi Data Operations Cloud.
Mayfield Managing Partner Navin Chaddha led the seed funding round. And GTMfund, Neythri Futures Fund, ThoughtSpot co-founder and executive chairman Ajeet Singh, and 13 other strategic investors also participated. These investments are a vote of confidence in the vision and track record of Revefi co-founders and leaders Sanjay Agrawal and Shashank Gupta.
The Revefi Data Operations Cloud is a co-pilot that empowers data teams to have the right data in their cloud data warehouses reliably, promptly, and affordably so that their organizations can use the data to make critical business decisions. And Revefi also leads to significant savings. Within weeks, one customer used Revefi to uncover insights that allowed them to save nearly 30% on their total Snowflake spend while, at the same time, their usage of the cloud data platform had increased by 35%. This was a huge saving – close to six figures – for this Revefi customer.
Revefi CEO Sanjay Agrawal and CTO Shashank Gupta
Revefi’s founders have gained deep expertise in building automated, high-performance, and scalable data solutions during their time as engineers at Amazon, Google, Meta, Microsoft, and Yahoo. They also co-founded AI-powered analytics company ThoughtSpot, which is now valued at $4.2 billion.
CEO Agrawal has over 20 years of leadership and deep enterprise expertise in building high-performance distributed databases, analytics, learning, and data recommendation systems. And at ThoughtSpot, he architected and developed a self-managing distributed data warehouse purpose-built for interactive ad hoc analytics. Later, he led SpotIQ – which pioneered the use of AI in analytics. From a leadership standpoint, he established the company’s Seattle area office, the first outside the Bay Area at the time. Before ThoughtSpot, he spent more than a decade at Microsoft and Google working on core SQL optimization techniques, self-tuning databases, and building petabyte-scale databases.
Gupta, CTO, has over two decades of deep system-building experience at big tech companies. And he proposed and led the automated data quality effort for Meta’s data warehouse, including the charter of data observability and quality for all of the tech giant’s data infrastructure. Plus, he headed up engineering at ThoughtSpot, using his search experience from Amazon and Yahoo to help develop the novel and industry-leading natural language search over data feature, which indexed data and metadata with row-level security enforcement.
Data Operations Cloud
Revefi also announced Revefi Data Operations Cloud, an innovative new zero-touch platform to monitor and manage data quality, performance, and costs. This new co-pilot platform empowers data teams to have the right data in their cloud data warehouses reliably, promptly, and affordably so that their organizations can use it to make critical business decisions. And Revefi also leads to significant savings.
Within weeks, one customer utilized Revefi to uncover insights that allowed it to save nearly 30% on its total Snowflake spend while at the same time, their usage of the cloud data platform had increased by 35%. That was a huge saving – close to six figures – for this Revefi customer.
The problem of bad data quality – which causes businesses to lose an average of $12.9 million annually – has been long understood. This led to the sea of siloed data observability tools that have emerged recently. However, these tools have limited effectiveness because bad data quality is part of the problem. Unpredictable costs are another massive business pain point since it is not viable for organizations to set and manage limits for their data warehouse users proactively. There is limited visibility into why and how these services are being used. So businesses are frequently surprised by their data warehouse service provider bills, which can rapidly snowball out of control, sometimes adding tens of thousands of dollars to their bills in just one weekend.
Revefi Data Operations Cloud now addresses both of these challenges. Within a few minutes, Revefi Data Operations Cloud automatically connects data quality, performance, spending, and usage without requiring manual thresholds and configurations and creates a baseline using proprietary AI models. And Revefi is on the constant lookout and alerts users if and where unexpected behavior is related to their spending or data. This system automatically ranks issues based on magnitude and usage and generates information and details about the root cause to help users understand situations and take immediate action.
