Cask makes building and running big data solutions on-premises, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment easy with Cask Data Application Platform (CDAP), the first unified integration platform for big data. CDAP reduces the time to production for data lakes and data applications by 80%, empowering the business to make better decisions faster. It lets developers, architects and data scientists focus on applications and insights rather than infrastructure and integration. CDAP accelerates time to value from Hadoop through standardized APIs, configurable templates and visual interfaces. CDAP is 100% open source, Hadoop-native and seamlessly integrates with existing BI and security and governance solutions. Based in Palo Alto, California, the company is backed by leading investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Battery Ventures and Ignition Partners. The team has built and operated some of the largest Big Data apps in the world.
