As an investor focused on data and analytics, we’ve reviewed many companies focused on data management, big data analytics, machine learning and industry applications. While these solutions are incredibly strong, they often struggle to deliver value to the business user because they aren’t a full solution. Reltio Cloud is disrupting these technology silos, by providing an end-to-end platform that incorporates the technologies, data and capabilities to connect raw data directly to business value. When applied as a healthcare and life sciences industry cloud solution, Reltio delivers data-driven applications directly into the hands of these organizations’ Sales, Marketing and Compliance teams to enable them to be right faster, and let their people do their jobs better.
