Interview: Tomer Shiran, Co-founder and CEO at Dremio

I recently caught up with Tomer Shiran, Co-founder and CEO at Dremio, to discuss his new company that just came out of stealth. Dremio is an open source software start-up based in Mountain View, and was built on the idea that companies need to change that dynamic between the consumers of data and IT. Dremio’s strategy is based on the premise that data consumers have too many tools, which creates unnecessary complexity and user headaches, particularly in mixed environments involving traditional and emerging platforms. Dremio simplifies the process of connecting, preparing and querying data in multiple different repositories in order to give data consumers a better experience when analyzing the data in their analysis tool of choice.
