EdgeSpring Unveils the World's First Big Data Analytics Platform Built 
Expressly for the End User 
EdgeSpring Announces Series A Financing From Kleiner Perkins Caufield
& Byers (KPCB) and Lightspeed Ventures 
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/16/13 --  EdgeSpring today
announced general availability of its Business Intelligence and
Analytics Platform designed from the ground up to empower users to
rapidly derive business insights from data of any size or structure,
without dependence on overburdened analysts and IT specialists. The
company has raised a total of $11 million in financing including a $9
million series A from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) and
Lightspeed Ventures. 
EdgeSpring's platform enables users to drive timely decisions by
asking and easily answering first and second order questions across
structured and semi-structured data, like never before.  
"From day one, our vision was to democratize information access in
the enterprise," said Vijay Chakravarthy, founder and CEO of
EdgeSpring. "We are thrilled to have a fast growing list of engaged
customers, such as Equinix, Lithium, and Xactly, to name a few,
validating our vision through their rapid adoption of EdgeSpring."  
"EdgeSpring is a dramatically disruptive Business Intelligence
platform," said Brian Lillie, CIO of Equinix. "They have enabled us
to rapidly build easy-to-use analytic apps that our users love." 
To showcase the power of its platform, EdgeSpring has also developed
CrunchEdge, a playground to explore Crunchbase, a crowdsourced data
set of venture investments and startup company information.
CrunchEdge will be made publicly available at the beginning of June. 
"As enterprises face an explosion of new types of data and as
business leaders strive to go from raw data to informed decisions,
Big Data Analytics creates tremendous value," said Ted Schlein,
general partner at KPCB. "EdgeSpring is poised to capture a large
slice of the Big Data Analytics market with its powerful platform."
