Enso raises $16.5M to automate data-driven processes in minutes instead of weeks

News

California-based Enso, the company that provides a self-service data analytics and visualization platform for enterprises, comes out of the gate with $16.5M in funding.

The company is tackling one of the biggest challenges companies face – processing all the data they collect. Enso’s open-source platform allows anyone to build and automate data-driven processes, from loading and shuffling data from any source to cleaning and running advanced analytics, by simply connecting visual components.

The self-service tool, which the company says is as easy to use as Excel, analyzes the network of connected components, reviews the data and suggests the best steps to take. This allows users to work with the data, see it evolve live and modify it by mapping visual components, rather than writing code. It allows users to see the results of each step in the data pipeline in real-time.

“In one of the cases, we were working with a transaction maintenance team. One of their challenges was monitoring transaction errors. By using Enso, we were able to automate 80-90% of their workflow, allowing their data analysts to do the same amount of work they did in the past in 8 hours in less than 1.5 hours now – Wojciech Danilo, founder and CEO of the company

“In one of the cases, we were working with a transaction maintenance team. One of their challenges was monitoring transaction errors, discovering which customers were charged twice, and providing automatic refunds to them. The whole process contains a lot of steps. First, the data needs to be downloaded from different sources, including an internal database, a government website (not providing an easy access API), and the underlying Mastercard system. Then, the data needs to be blended, which is a non-trivial process – the same record can be named and timestamped differently across these databases… Moreover, missing data or invalid time records have to be handled as well. By using Enso, we were able to automate 80-90% of their workflow, allowing their data analysts to do the same amount of work they did in the past in 8 hours in less than 1.5 hours now,” said Wojciech Danilo, the founder and CEO of the company.

With this new funding, the company will work to improve the interface and stability of the product, making it accessible to a wider audience. It plans to launch its Enso Cloud (SaaS) in Q1 2023 with a user-friendly interface that will not require coding or scripting knowledge.
