Helping the humans of data
do more, together
We started out as a data team ourselves
We used data science to tackle problems facing humanity at the "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.
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.”
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.”

The tech tools we built helped us achieve…
the quality otherwise possible in…
of the time otherwise needed with…
the people otherwise required.
And we began to wonder...
What if our own internal tools and tech could power data-driven teams around the world?
Our team experimented with the tech tools we had built for 2 years, refining them across 200+ data projects across diverse industries, until we were convinced that Atlan was finally ready for the outside world.

Built by the humans of data, for the humans of data
We are building the company we wished we could partner with when we were a data team.
Atlan was battle-tested through 100+ data projects that affected the lives of 1 billion citizens, improving access to energy, healthcare, and education. From counting every building in the emerging world with satellite data to merging 600+ unstructured data sources, we've dealt with the most painful data problems firsthand.
