Ataccama, provider of a unified data management platform, is planning product innovation, accelerated global growth, and improved go-to-market services following $150 million in funding from Bain Capital Tech Opportunities – which takes a minority investment in the company. This is Ataccama’s first external investment round and will support its mission to democratise data in large organisations.

The company was founded in 2007 as a spin-off from data and systems integrator Adastra, serves the banking, financial services, insurance, life sciences, healthcare and retail sectors, turned a profit in 2011, and has built out a global location network from its Toronto, Canada headquarters covering the US, Europe and Australia.

Its platform, Ataccama ONE, unifies data governance, data catalog, data quality, and master data management functions in a single, AI-powered data fabric operating across hybrid and cloud environments, and enabling organisations to democratise their data while maintaining data accuracy, control and governance.

“Large organisations are struggling to scale, decentralise data initiatives and enable data democratisation, while at the same time keeping their data under control from a quality, governance, privacy and security perspective,” says Michal Klaus, CEO at Ataccama. “Ataccama ONE Gen2 provides both technical and less technical data people across the organisation to create high-quality, governed, safe and reusable data products. This has propelled Ataccama’s growth in annual recurring revenue and client retention.”  The company’s capital markets clients include Acadian Asset Management and Société Générale.

Dewey Awad, a managing director at Bain Capital Tech Opportunities, comments: “Demand for the Ataccama platform has driven an increase in the company’s average deal size, fueling incredible momentum. We see a significant runway for further growth.”
