Andy Petrella boat

Kensu was born from the need to see data clearly.

Our founder, Andy Petrella, a mathematician turned engineer, was an early evangelist of Apache Spark and the Spark Notebook creator and spent years working in a range of distributed technology fields.

He noticed a trend: As data environments grew more complex, it became more difficult for data teams to diagnose and troubleshoot data flaws. This would often lead to painful breakdowns and frustration between data producers and data consumers. 

Andy poured his passion and energy into solving the problem. The result was Kensu, the first-ever data observability platform that gives data teams a real-time window into data pipelines acting on their data. 

Kensu is listed by Gartner
