today announced a partnership to provide select startups with free
access to the GoodData platform. StartupYard is recruiting applicants
for its fourth round until January 31st with the theme of Data,

early stage startups huge amounts of time and money that would be
spent on building similar technologies internally," said Cedric
Maloux, Managing Director of StartupYard. "Companies accepted to this
round will benefit from a bleeding-edge platform that already serves
Fortune 500 companies around the world, allowing them to focus on
what they do best: innovate and grow." 
GoodData powers analytics for over 100 independent software vendors
(ISVs) through one end-to-end platform that delivers integration,
storage, analysis, visualization and collaboration around structured
and unstructured data. Through this partnership, startups will access
the full platform and pre-release technologies including JavaScript
SDK, columnar storage Data Storage Service (DSS) and an open Cloud
Data Application Platform. GoodData plans to make these technologies
generally available in 2014. 
"The beauty of an open platform is that it encourages innovation and
fresh ideas," said Roman Stanek, founder and CEO of GoodData. "We are
excited to collaborate with some of the smartest, most creative teams
in Europe as they build incredible data products." 
On top of the three-month accelerator program and perks worth 250,000
