Altrincham-based cloud data integration platform Matillion has announced an investment from US-based Databricks Ventures.

Matillion said the strategic investment for an undisclosed amount underpins Databricks’ support of the Data Productivity Cloud to integrate more data, free up resources, and empower data practitioners.

“We welcome Matillion to the Databricks Ventures portfolio and look forward to deepening our partnership with their team,” said Andrew Ferguson, VP, Corporate Development & Ventures, Databricks.

“Matillion’s code-optional data ingestion and transformation capabilities are purpose built for Databricks and allow our joint customers to quickly build data pipelines and seamlessly collaborate on the Databricks Lakehouse Platform.”

As longtime partners, Matillion and Databricks share a joint customer base with a notable concentration in biosciences, healthcare, and energy.

The companies said the Data Productivity Cloud provides a “complete solution for loading, transforming, synchronizing, and orchestrating data in the Databricks Lakehouse Platform.”

Matillion CEO Matthew Scullion said: “To unleash the full potential of their cloud data, teams need to achieve new levels of productivity with their data using open, scalable technology.

“With Matillion and Databricks, data teams can feel empowered to work quickly and flexibly to deliver data to the business.

“This investment from Databricks will support Matillion’s current and future technical integrations into the lakehouse and bring more data productivity to our shared customers.”

Matillion said it helps teams get data business-ready, faster — accelerating time-to-value and increasing the impact data can have.

The Altrincham firm said thousands of enterprises including Cisco, DocuSign, Pacific Life, Slack, and TUI trust Matillion to load, transform, sync, and orchestrate their data for a wide range of use cases from insights and operational analytics, to data science, machine learning and AI.
