Chartio was founded in 2010 and has been through several rounds of fundraising. The idea behind the company is to build an interface for company data, by direct connecting to company databases to visualize data in real time, bypassing the need for data warehousing. The product is purely web based, and is designed first and foremost for business users lacking the technical skills of data analysts. Chartio tends to be used by smaller companies, rather than large enterprises.
