Helping the humans of data
do more, together

The humans of data are diverse: analysts, engineers, business, product, scientists. Each has their own tooling preferences, skillsets, and DNA. When these diverse people come together and collaborate, we know that amazing things will happen — everything from self-driving cars to a cure for cancer. Here's to the decade of the humans of data!

Our story

We started out as a data team ourselves

We used data science to tackle problems facing humanity at data-for-good enterprise, SocialCops. Over 5 years, we built internal tools to help our data team execute large-scale data projects — minus all the chaos.

Our co-founder Prukalpa in conversation with Roy from Sequoia Capital about our journey so far

2016 - 2018

The building blocks

Atlan was incubated while building the world’s largest government data lake – India’s national data platform.

Our tools allowed us to connect 42 databases across 25 national ministries in a record 12 months — the fastest deployment of its type globally.

“… a crucial step towards good governance through which we will be able to monitor everything centrally. It will enable us to effectively monitor every village of the country.”

Narendra Modi,

Honorable Prime Minister of India

Atlan was stress-tested across large-scale data projects for 200 organizations, including the United Nations' SDGs National Data Platforms .

“We have built something foundational here. The relationship has been absolutely brilliant. I think you have a very talented team of young innovators who understand technology trends and have built products that few other players have.”

Yuri Afanasiev,

Former Resident Coordinator
United Nations in India

And we began to wonder...

What if our own internal tools and tech could power data-driven teams around the world?

That's when
Atlan was born!

Our team experimented with the tech tools we had built for 2 years, refining them across 200+ data projects and industries, until we were convinced that Atlan was finally ready for the outside world!
