Unifi was founded to satisfy a frustrating industry need.

Unifi provides a comprehensive suite of self-service data integration tools to empower business users. Unifi combines an intuitive interface with the widest range of native data connectors on the market to facilitate all aspects of data integration, including: discovery, cleansing, enriching, normalization, transformation and native connection to industry-leading BI Tools. Unifi is the only enterprise-class, data integration platform that runs natively on Hadoop, leveraging both Hive and Spark resources, while delivering uncompromising security and data governance.

So Unifi created a software platform that makes the entire data preparation process a no-hassle no-brainer.
From acquisition to transformation, Unifi has cut Big Data hassles down to size with a clever way to access data from multiple sources and unify it into a single user-friendly platform.

For IT professionals, this means enabling and empowering end-users while maintaining tight control over the environment. For analysts, it means gleaning insights faster because this intuitive process is conveniently self-service.

Unifi’s enterprise-class, self-help data preparation process is unique to the industry, thanks to a combination of key steps Unifi takes that nobody else does. Unifi is the one transforming the way enterprises access, interact and consume data. If you’re ready for that transformation, we invite you to request a Unifi demo.

And I’m happy to report that the drive and vision of great entrepreneurs continues to amaze me. In fact, learning about the technologies and innovations that will drive the next great disruption (as I like to call it) is what gets me up in the morning.

Since the late 1990’s, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some pretty talented teams. And together, we’ve built a variety of businesses. From bookstores to candy confectioners. For me, the joy is in discovering what makes a business tick. And then doing what’s necessary to drive long-term value.
