It’s almost a cliché to say that we now drown in data, but we do. When an organization intends to use big data to become smarter and more competitive, the standard approach is to modernize its analytical capabilities. The current environment—from mobile apps to social media and other communications channels that seem to emerge daily—now regularly generates data volumes that far exceed all content officially recorded throughout human history. A modern analytical application promises to generate more insight and help you spot new market trends faster than before. But finding insights faster than others in the age of big data is not only about implementing a new piece of visualization software – it’s a transformational journey for people and for the entire analytical process. If we think of analytics as the engine that accelerates a smart organization, then data is the fuel that runs the engine.
Companies have traditionally turned to Master Data Management (MDM) to help them blend data from multiple sources and create consolidated master profile views of various data entities. But MDM solutions require complex infrastructure and processes, and lengthy implementations, which means business users wait a long time to get any value and end up using off-the-shelf solutions or spreadsheets, digging for insights in unreliable, stale, and outdated information. This has led many to view MDM as a promise unfulfilled. Enter Reltio, a new leader in data management with a Modern Data Management Platform-as-a-Service in the cloud, built on a foundation of technologies designed for big data scale. Reltio is a privately held company headquartered in Redwood Shores, California. The company’s mission is to help enterprise users ‘Be Right Faster.’
Redefining Master Data Management to Modern Data Management
More data, more types of data, and the need to leverage it all to create more business value ─ those are some of the drivers behind enterprise adoption of master data management platforms. Reltio Cloud pulls in data from all internal, external, third-party and social media sources, including all transactions and omnichannel interactions at big data scale, to provide business users with a complete picture of what’s important to them. Part of its Modern Data Management platform, Reltio Commercial Graph enables business users to uncover many-to-many relationships between people, companies, and products. Through this comprehensive Platform-as-a-Service, enterprises quickly gain access to very rich and reliable data profiles in as few as 12 weeks, compared to legacy tools that can take months or years to deliver results. Today, Reltio Cloud has hundreds of terabytes of enterprise data under management with billions of multi-domain entities and relationships managed in polyglot storage across Apache Cassandra, Apache Spark, graph stores, Elasticsearch, and other technologies. Tens of millions of real-time API calls are made each day, including support for sales and marketing teams accessing data via browser-based UI desktop and mobile business users with real-time synchronization to operational third-party applications, and analytical environments.
But Reltio’s innovative solution doesn’t stop there – once a reliable data foundation is created, Reltio Cloud leverages predictive analytics and machine learning to create relevant insights and recommended actions in context with a user’s specific role, and business goals.
A Passionate Technology Impresario
Manish Sood, CEO and Founder of Reltio is an entrepreneur with a passion for innovation.

He was previously part of the team that developed Informatica MDM, and now he’s back with the Reltio platform, aggressively taking market share from these legacy incumbents.
Sood founded Reltio in 2011 with the mission to enable companies to “be right faster.” Today, organizations of all sizes, including leading Fortune 500 companies in healthcare and life sciences, media & entertainment, hospitality, distribution and retail, rely on Reltio to provide their teams with a complete view across all information sources to help them understand markets and drive revenue opportunities through actionable, real-time predictive insights.
