Matillion exists because we believe in a few fundamental truths:
We provide a complete data integration and transformation solution that is purpose-built for the cloud and cloud data warehouses.
Matthew Scullion and Ed Thompson, believing that the future of business intelligence is in the cloud, leave their comfortable jobs to start their own company.
On day one, in the countryside outside of Manchester, UK, Ed starts writing code for the main builder for Matillion's first product, whilst Matthew creates the core values on which the company will be founded.
Matillion provides turn-key business intelligence analytics as a service in the AWS cloud. In other words, they create dozens of data warehouses in the cloud.
Amazon introduces Amazon Redshift.
After an all-night hackathon in Knutsford, Matillion migrates its BI solution to Amazon Redshift. They become experts in handling data and BI on the new platform.
After building dozens of cloud data warehouses, building and running thousands of ETL jobs in Amazon Redshift, and getting millions of rows of data ready for analytics, Matillion realizes two things. First, complex data transformation needs the speed, scale, and economics of the cloud. Second, no existing ETL tool really does this well.
Matillion decides to build their own tool: Project Emerald begins.
Matillion launches Emerald, its internal tool purpose-built to bring data into the cloud data warehouse and transform it there.
A polished-up version of Emerald debuts worldwide on the AWS Marketplace as Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift.
