Building quality solutions, based on performance and reliability, is at the core of DataStreams’ business philosophy and has enabled DataStreams to become one of the leading global providers of data integration and data quality solutions. In 2000 DataStreams began development of its flagship product TeraStream, a high-performance ETL and batch processing solution. After 2 years of concentrated R&D TeraStream was released with advanced functions which continue to outperform rival solutions by as much as 3x performance.
In 2005 DataStream acquired KDB Solution Company, Korea. This acquisition resulted in the release of MetaStream, DataStreams’ meta-data management solution. Late in 2007 DataStream received $4 million (USD) in funding from JAFCO, Japan, for business expansion and R&D efforts. DataStreams’ leadership team has continued to evolve the product line to deliver complete end-to-end solutions for Enterprise Data Management (EDM) and Master Data Management (MDM).
With a commitment to innovation, DataStreams relocated its R&D efforts into a new state-of-the-art facility in Pangyo Techno Valley (Korea's Silicon Valley) in 2012. This move mirrors the company’s belief that R&D centers are a treasure chest of corporate competency and human ingenuity; the more R&D investment, the stronger your software competitiveness.
In 2012 DataStreams was selected to apply its EDM solution and unstructured data analysis during the legislative and presidential elections to help predict outcomes. Currently companies across the globe in financial services, manufacturing, retail, transportation and public market segments utilize DataStreams award winning solutions to manage their business data.
As DataStreams continues its path of stable growth, its leadership team is committed to expanding its agile, world-class data management and data integration solutions and services, with an eye towards the evolving architectures and market needs of tomorrow.
