Waterline Data was founded by a group of people frustrated by the reality that most organizations spend more time looking for data, relying on their own experience and tribal data knowledge, and less time using data to drive value creation and revenue generation. Companies lacked clarity about what data they actually have, who has access to it and what it can be used for.

Waterline Data offers a smart data catalog to empower business analysts and data scientists to find, understand, and provision the trusted data they need to do self-service data preparation and analytics in a data lake. 

They also enable Data Stewards to curate the data catalog in an agile approach, bringing trusted data to the “waterline” so it can be used to extract insight and create greater value.

Waterline Data's team are driven by the belief that they can apply their experience along with advances in machine learning and big data analytics to make data more accessible and usable for all organizations.
