Today I’m thrilled to announce that Nexla is now live, in public beta!
Nexla is a next-generation data operations platform that manages secure inter-company data collaboration at scale. Our launch comes on the heels of the company’s $3.5 million seed funding round led by Blumberg Capital with participation from Storm Ventures, Engineering Capital and Correlation Ventures. In addition, we’re proud to unveil the results of our recent survey, “The 2017 Definitive Data Operations Report ” illuminating the critical need for automation in data operations. Key findings include:
- 91% of companies plan to ingest third party data, and 70% plan to share data with partners
- 70 percent of companies have teams working on machine learning or artificial intelligence (AI)
- 64 percent of companies say they will do more with machine learning or AI in the next year
- 70 percent of companies have plans to hire in DataOps in the next year

Welcome to the DataOps Revolution
New data types emerging from IoT, connected cars, healthcare, e-commerce, travel and more are causing an influx of data at an exponential rate. That data, needed for sophisticated machine learning models, exists not only with companies themselves but also in thousands of public and private sources outside of the enterprise boundary.
We have been lucky to work with companies like Instacart to solve the lengthy challenges associated with data operations. We want to help scale the DataOps process so that engineers can focus on other tasks, such as machine learning and advanced analytics.
Our web-based SaaS platform has an easy-to-use interface that allows business users to set up data pipelines, transform data, and grant and revoke access to partners. The solution functions without relying on engineering teams, making the data engineer’s job easier by empowering other users to access the data they need.
With this new round of funding, Nexla plans to grow its team in engineering, product management, sales, and customer success at its San Francisco Bay Area headquarters.

We are a passionate team built on the core values of empathy, curiosity, achieving excellence, intellectual honesty, and (most of the time) remembering to relax.
This is just the beginning! To learn more about how Nexla can help you streamline your DataOps, we’d love to give you a demo.
