Ryax Technologies raises 1.34 million euros in seed funding for its smart data platform
Less than 2 years after its creation, Ryax Technologies secures its first funding round with IT Translation Investment, Crédit Agricole Alpes Développement (C2AD) and Business Angels. This investment is completed by funds from BPI France, Banque Populaire Rhône-Alpes, BNP Paribas and Total Développement Rhône. This investment will help with Ryax Smart Data platform’s market launch and industrialization.
Solving smart data projects industrialization issues
According to a Gartner study, 85% of today’s data science projects never reach production because industrializing data pipelines is overwhelmingly complex. Despite being at the heart of companies’ digital transformation, this issue is not likely to be easily tackled in the near future in the context of ever-increasing data volume, frequency (streaming), distribution and perishability.
Putting algorithms into production, made fast and simple
French startup Ryax Technologies has taken up this challenge to assist its customers in running data science on real-time streaming data flows within complex IT infrastructures, combining Edge, Fog, Cloud and On Premise computational resources.
The company enables Data Scientists to directly put their algorithms into production thanks to an easy-to-use and automated platform.
Ryax Technologies offers:
– Shorter times to market for smart data projects, thanks to industrial-grade automation of every stage of any data pipeline.
– Cost optimization of any infrastructure.
– Minimal maintenance costs thanks to its robust, secure and customer-adapted environment.
A seed funding to accelerate Ryax’s development
This investment will accelerate the launch and industrialization of Ryax’s solution. The startup has been supported by Grenoble-based Village by CA since June 2019.
“After a first development period in which we confirmed the customers’ interest for our solution, we are now entering Ryax’s critical go-to-market phase. With the help of this investment, we believe that Ryax will be able to make a powerful first start on the markets. We are deeply glad to be supported by such prestigious investors, our trusted relationship will contribute to the success of our future developments”, says Andry Razafinjatovo.
