Cloudera обновляет базовую технологию для привлечения клиентов на корпоративных рынках искусственного интеллекта


Cloudera, a data analysis company, has revised its core technology to keep up with the rapidly growing artificial intelligence market and has become profitable after being taken private two years ago in a $4.7 billion deal, according to the new company CEO. The company, founded in 2008 by Silicon Valley veterans, aimed to analyze massive pools of corporate information long before the emergence of current AI systems capable of reading and writing about this data in a human manner. Cloudera went public in 2017 but struggled to turn a profit and was taken private by Clayton Dubilier & Rice and KKR. The new CEO stated that the company has completed the overhaul of its core systems and now has an annual revenue of over $1 billion, with operating profits in the hundreds of millions. However, Cloudera’s sales are approximately half of its public competitor, Snowflake, whose revenue for the last financial year was $2 billion. Cloudera also competes with DataBricks, a private startup valued at $43 billion. All three companies hope that large corporations will want to store at least some of their data within their own firewalls for confidentiality and security reasons, rather than entrusting them to cloud computing partners so they can take advantage of new AI technology. Cloudera assists clients in highly regulated industries, such as finance, in preparing their data for their own AI work. The CEO compared the process to preparing a field for planting, stating that while there are some fundamental tasks involved, most of the work is in preparing the rows.
