Earlier, the concepts of data access and analysis mainly applied to statisticians, quants and specialists. However, overtime, the industry role of data has evolved beyond expectations, and it would be an understatement to say that data is an active part of business sector. In fact, it is impossible for any business venture to survive

without properly assessing the available data. With data analysis transforming as the lifeline of business ventures, firms involved in the extensive data access and analysis sector have a major role to play. Standing out among the companies trying to leverage these trends is ClearStory Data, a Palo Alto, California based firm serving as an integrated Application and Platform enabling faster analysis on internal as well as external data.

The company's technology combines a powerful data-processing and data intelligence platform with a simple user application that harmonizes disparate data to help inform decisions and collaboratively drive.
