TL;DR

  • In 2020, the pandemic accelerated the level of urgency for digital transformation at the enterprise level across the globe. Customer behavior patterns evolved (and continue to evolve) rapidly making real-time data acquisition for better analytic insights in the cloud more mission-critical than ever before.
  • This market shift presented significant opportunity for Equalum. We more than tripled our YoY revenue, expanded headcount as competitors reduced staff and brought on blue chip clients like GlaxoSmithKline, Bonobos (Walmart) and Siemens.
  • The industry took note. We made CRN’s “10 Hottest Startups of 2020,” Solution Review’s “10 Best CDC Tools” list and were named a “Trend-Setting Product for 2021” by Database Trends and Applications.
  • In 2021, we see continued growth through direct sales and our global channel partner program, aggressive hiring across sales, marketing and R&D, and an upcoming product innovation phase that will significantly disrupt the traditional data integration paradigm.

Why?

At the enterprise level, moving to the cloud used to be considered an opportunity versus a risk to the enterprise. But in the current data landscape, not moving to the cloud, not performing analytics and not modernizing is all risk. Business decision makers are no longer shielding IT. IT’s job has become much more than just protecting production systems. Now they also have to prevent stale, inaccurate data from impeding analytic insights. That’s where Equalum comes in.

Our platform bridges the gap between the growing complexity of the data movement world and the limitations of existing legacy systems. Our change data capture (CDC) approach extracts data from the sources in real-time incrementally while allowing a full scale-out, no coding experience for data transformation and preparation, while leveraging open source technologies in the platform engine. CDC is truly the gateway for streaming data ingestion/integration from legacy systems which then empowers analytics with real-time data.



Customers and analysts agree.

Director of Enterprise Architecture at GSK, Joel Buck, explains via ITCentralStation that Equalum “is a really powerful platform in terms of the combination of technologies they've developed and integrated together, out-of-the-box. The combination of Kafka and Spark is, we believe, quite unique, combined with CDC capabilities. And then, of course, there are the performance aspects. As an overall package, it's a very powerful data integration, migration, and replication tool. It's got it all, from end-to-end. It's the glue. There are a lot of other products out there, good products, but there's always a little bit of something missing from the other products. Equalum did its research well and understood the requirements of large enterprises and governments in terms of one tool to rule them all, from a data migration integration perspective."

VP of Research at Eckerson Group, Kevin Petrie, notes that “Equalum has the right solution to address a compelling growth opportunity created by digital transformation and cloud hyper-adoption. To survive and compete, enterprises need to synchronize operations and analyze opportunities on a real time basis. This requires automatically integrating live data across hybrid, cloud and multi cloud environments.”



What does 2021 hold?

It’s no secret that 2020 changed everything. At Equalum, we see continued growth through direct sales and our global channel partner program, aggressive hiring across the company, particularly in sales, marketing and R&D, and upcoming product innovations that, we believe, will significantly disrupt the traditional data integration paradigm.
