About Waterline Data
Waterline Data was founded in 2013, and is backed by Menlo Ventures and Sigma West. The inspiration for the name “Waterline” came from the metaphor of the data lake where the data is hidden in the depth of the lake below the waterline. The mission of Waterline Data is to help data engineers and data scientists find the best suited and most trusted data without coding and manual exploration – in other words they should be able to “Hadoop above the waterline.” Waterline Data was developed to leverage the power and scalability of Hadoop to automate the inventory of data assets in the data lake and enable self-service with governance, so business users can find and understand the data in a secure and compliant way.
