2012 - The year that was
We at DataWeave had a fast-paced 2012 with a large, at times, mind-bogglingly so ,number of threads running in parallel. As we draw close to the New Year, we want to pause a moment and look back at the year that was.
The number of data points that we served as on 28th December is 44,64,310.
This approximates to about 14,000 data points every day on average, or about 10 every minute. We are proud of these stats, but we are not ones to be complacent. We instead want to keep pushing at those numbers constantly, and keep treading deeper waters.
Comparison Shopping Engines, eCommerce Portals, Brands, Developers, Travel Companies and Media Houses.
While most of our initial focus has been on developing offerings for businesses, we also want to provide an active space for the developer community. There is a clear need for mobile apps powered by high quality datasets, which we aim to fulfill. A couple of Apps have already been powered by us, lending teeth to our capabilities.
LowPrice was the first Android app that is powered by our commodity prices datasets. It lets you scan a book and find the lowest priced seller. Pranay Airan, who developed this, shares his thoughts here
GaadiWala was developed by Vamsi Krishna to keep users informed about the car and bike prices across cities in India.
We were named as one of the 3 best Tech Product Startups in India for 2012 by TechSparks.
The media coverage we have received this year has been heartening and validates much of our very own beliefs. Some of the write ups about us are on TechCircle, and we were featured twice on YourStory and once on CNBC
We are growing …
We would like to thank everybody at Headstart for their support and organizational competence and in helping us secure two bright talents.
What to look for in 2013 …
- Lot more datasets and APIs
- More verticals—travel, corporate intelligence
- Additional geographies
- Increased focus on developers and mobile app space
- Customized Alerts
More people coming on board
A few more exciting stuff … Some of which we’ll only be able to let you in on officially at the beginning of 2013!
