A formidable 2013 year of a Big Data start-up

The first 12 months of a BigData venture

We will remember 2013 as the year when Stratio was born. The brainchild of Oscar Méndez, Nacho Cabrera, Julio Casal and a few others, Stratio was only a number of disconnected ideas just 12 months ago. Some of the best ones were discussed, sometimes quite passionately, at a number of weekly web conferences between Madrid and Palo Alto in the early months of the year.

Spark Summit 2013 – Stratio was in San Francisco

December 2nd 2013 was a great day for the Spark community: the first Spark Summit took place in San Francisco. The event confirmed Spark as one of the BigData tools with the highest adoption rate seen in the last years. The event hosted 450 professionals interested in this technology and showed the roadmap for the upcoming months.
